In honor of the recent rebranding and the new website name, I decided to do an on-the-go themed article. If you are constantly flitting from place to place, you’ll likely sometimes skip meals (especially breakfast) due to a lack of time. That isn’t necessary when you can make a quick and easy smoothie to take on the road with you. These simple recipes don’t take a lot of tools–just a blender, a portable cup, and maybe a cutting board and knife. All of these can be meal prepped an evening or two ahead of time if you’re working with fresh ingredients (rather than frozen); just chop things up and put them in a bag in the freezer or fridge. All these recipes are also jam-packed with vitamins to keep your energy and stamina high.

If you’re wanting tasty and nutritional smoothies to take with you while you work through your busy schedule, look no further!

All of these smoothie recipes can help keep your energy high, body strong, and brain sharp while going about your day. They provide essential nutrients. Plus, most of them taste pretty good. If you skip meals because they take too much time, you now have another option. Pop some ingredients into a blender and let it do all the work for you. Mind you, I don’t advise drinking smoothies in place of all your meals. It’s just a good filler option for the on-the-go lifestyle.
