During the week I don’t have time to make breakfast so my go-to’s are usually overnight oats or smoothies. This week has been especially sunny and it’s beginning to feel like Spring is making her appearance. I love smoothies as a snack or breakfast in the warmer months because they are so refreshing and make me feel great.
