During the summer, many Manhattanites are doing whatever they can to keep their bodies in tip top shape for the beach and many other outdoor activities. That can tend to fall at the waist side when the colder weather of Fall comes in (me included) and it becomes a bit harder to stay in the shape you want while being fulfilled with the food or drink you are enjoying. One particular place that is helping that out, especially for those college kids going back to school, is Pure Green, who’s focus is to make it easy to live a healthy lifestyle.
If your back-to-school mornings are a blur of grab-and-go breakfasts, there’s a simple, fast way to bring together delicious and nutritious ingredients for you and your family: smoothies. Making a fruit- or veggie-filled shake or smoothie is so easy even kids can do it. Smoothies can provide potassium, calcium, fiber and other nutrients missing from many of our diets.
Check out the below smoothie recipes to beat breakfast boredom from The Pure Green (www.ThePureGreen.com) – they’re easy enough to make at home or if you’re really in a time crunch head to one of their multiple NYC locations.
