    I love smoothes for breakfast and I always like to “sneak” a little green veggie in there too. You totally can’t taste it! Perfect idea for little kids. And I really appreciated your breakfast tip about avoiding high sugar in the morning. I think I’ve naturally just avoided sugar in the morning (because it would be a lot to take early in the morning) but when you broke down the facts, it makes a lot of sense!

      Thanks Heather! I’m glad you enjoy the greens in your smoothies too šŸ˜‰ And yes on the sugar. I think it’s most important for kids or people who pre-diabetic or diabetic. I do not like sugar in the mornings at all, but I know so many breakfast items are just full of sugar!

    You have sooo converted me amy! Since we’ve come home from Germany, I’ve made smoothies every darn morning :). Our local farms freeze their berries and sell them at the grocery store, which makes it easy.. The girls found that they ‘tolerated’ hemp milk vs. the flax milk, and I have to add chia seeds in individually, as they seem to upset Elaine’s tummy. BUT…my girls are FINALLY eating veggies as well as fruit for breakfast. Thanks!!! (BTW…frozen spinach has been a lifesaver as it’s cheaper than the ridiculously expensive fresh spinach here in WA, and easier to prepare!).
