I know when I first considered drinking smoothies as a meal replacement in the morning I thought it was going to be so much work.... soon I found out that making eggs, sausage, toast, and hash browns was actually a lot of work, and that often my breakfast of choice. Smoothies can be easily prepared ahead of time and you can measure out your fruit servings into a zip lock sandwich bag and throw it in the freezer so that your fruit is already prepared for your smoothie ahead of time. This is especially convenient with a product like the Nutribullet, because you can just dump your fruit into the blender cup and place the blade right on top and your done within 30 seconds. Of course you can do this with a normal blender too but then you are obligated to use the big pitcher for a small smoothie serving, that's why I love the Nutribullet and I am glad I received one for Christmas last year.
Either way its a great start just having a smoothie for breakfast instead of high fat convenient breakfast item. With smoothies you can control what you eat. The best, most healthy smoothies are often a mixture of both fruits and vegetables. The combinations are endless and I suggest you explore your own tastes and preferences to find which combinations you like most!
