After the holidays it’s easy to fall back into the busy work-life routines, and often times that means missing out on essential healthy foods – especially around breakfast. Sometimes it’s easier to just grab less healthy options on the go, but don’t settle for that! Find something that isn’t loaded with sugar, that will treat your mind and body (especially teeth) right.

We love smoothies because they are a healthy way to stop cravings for those post-holiday sweets. If you want to up your protein, add some plain Greek yogurt to one of the smoothies above. Note: Not all Greek yogurt is created equal and some brands have hidden sugar so be sure to read the label carefully if you are trying to detox from the holidays.
