“Ice is most welcome in a cold drink on a hot day. But in the heart of winter, you want a warm hot mug with your favorite soothing brew to keep the chill away.” – Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration
There is snow on the ground, icicles hanging outside my house, salt covered sidewalks, and mugs of hot chocolate being enjoyed daily: winter is most certainly upon us. That being said – when I walk in the door covered in snow the last thing my chilled hands reach for is something cold. However, I have to remind myself of the goals I’ve set and the healthy habits I want to include in my daily life, regardless of the season.
Smoothies help me maintain a healthy lifestyle and are a great grab-and-go option for breakfast. I’m still drinking smoothies, but not as often as I used to when the weather was warm. Lately I’ve been drinking smoothies after I work out at home because my body is already warm and smoothies are a healthy way to re-fuel. This smoothie is very high in vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin B6. Translation? This smoothie is full of antioxidants and contains vitamins that support brain health, vision, and a healthy immune system. All of those health benefits in one glass? That’s definitely enough motivation for me to drink up!
