6 to-go ideas for breakfast

Published 1 year ago at 19 Sep 2019 by Alexandra Soare

Sometimes I wake up in the morning, wishing I won´t have to rush to work! There are many things that I could change, like waking up a bit earlier or trying to go to sleep at an acceptable hour. But there is one thing that can make mornings much easier: preparing breakfast the evening before!

If you are also looking for an easy solution to make your mornings more relaxing, here are 6 smoothies you can pick from!

Why breakfast with smoothies? 

Smoothies are a perfect way to start the morning! 

Recent statistics have shown that in Europe:

  • 17,7% have potassium deficit
  • 13,2% have iron deficit
  • 11% have magnesium deficit
  • 9,6% have vitamin A deficit
  • 5,9% have folic acid (vitamin B9) deficit

During the day it can happen that we are overwhelmed at work and don´t have the chance to eat enough fruits or veggies, that is why, it is best to start the morning with a  dose of minerals and fiber! The good news is that it can also be to-go!

Start by picking up your favorite between the following!

RASPBERRY SMOOTHIE:

100 ml  soy milk or coconut water
