If you google the phrase “skip breakfast” more than 10 million results pop up; we all know eating breakfast is important, yet 31 million of us are skipping it.
I hate to admit it, but I’ve never been good about eating breakfast. Drinking coffee? Yes. Eating breakfast? No. It took a visit with my internist a few weeks ago to jolt me back into reality. In essence, she said that everything I am doing to maintain a “healthy” lifestyle is being thwarted by not getting the proper nutrients in my body at the beginning of the day.
So, what’s a gal to do? Like you, I’m trying to do at least 50 things before I head out the door each morning. Sadly, taking the time to make breakfast has never been high on my priority list. I’ve tried – I have a nutri-bullet and I love smoothies, but buying the fruits and veggies, and then cutting them up to make the smoothies is easier said than done, right? On a good day, I remember to buy a piece of fruit from the street vendor and I scarf it down on my way to the gym or my appointment. But, things changed for the better when I stumbled upon Daily Harvest.
My #womancrushwednesday is Rachel Drori, a busy New Yorker and founder of Daily Harvest. She too wanted to have the time to make smoothies in the morning, but life got in the way. So, instead she created a company that makes ready-to-blend whole food smoothies and delivers them to you! Yup, you know that got me right there – well, delivery AND beautiful brandingAND easy to make GREAT SMOOTHIES (freeze until you’re ready to use; then just throw in the blender [nutri-bullet] and add water).
I just had to share this goodness! And, since you are a part of my girl gang and are totally #badass, if you’re interested in trying Daily Harvest, just click right here for $15 off of your first order.
