We’re huge fans of starting your day off with a green smoothie. Making a healthy choice first thing sets you up for more mindful meals later on in the day. Plus, enjoying a breakfast that serves up a healthy balance of protein (collagen), carbs (pineapple, banana), and fat (coconut milk) is a great way to keep yourself satiated and satisfied until lunchtime.
