|Yum Yum Smoothie|
It turns out you a really can eat your way to better health. A smoothie for breakfast helps you get hydrated at the start of the day, something soda and coffee won't do. Since your body pulls water from many foods in order to stay hydrated, you won't have to drink water when you're sipping on a smoothie (especially a homemade one without the artificial sugar). Milk and yogurt are largely water, so if your smoothie is dairy-based (dairy is optional), you'll quench your thirst. This is especially handy if you only have one cup holder on your commute. In hot weather, add a few ice cubes to the blender for extra water.
I personally love juice mixed with vegetables and fruits.

Wash all the ingredients very thoroughly so all the debris is gone and cut into pieces. No need to take the peel off.Add all the ingredients in a blender to blend till its smooth. I shall highly recommend the "Vitamix" blender for smoothies it blends very evenly and it blends fiber into juice very finely. However, one can use any other blender available at home. Also, you can filter the juice threw sieve if you don't like the too much fiber. I prefer to leave fiber in my juice. Good for you. Cheers!
