Someone asked me this week, “Hey Jackie, why do you prefer smoothies for breakfast during the week?” That’s an easy one! Smoothies are quick kitchen work, portable, easily digestible and allow me to start my day with several servings of fruits, vegetables, clean protein and fiber. After a smoothie filled with nutrient and vitamin rich whole foods, my skin is glowing from the inside out and I am ready to conquer anything and everything!
