These smoothies are a perfect opportunity to supply ample nutrition for breakfast or lunch on-the-go. I generally load up a 32 oz glass juice jar, and take with me to work or play. Remember, for optimal nutrition, 30-40g of fiber daily is recommended. Unfortunately, that is very hard to achieve without using a greens drink with chia, flax, hemp, or a fiber supplement.

Sunday brunch! I get asked all the time by my patients "how do you suggest eating vegetables for breakfast?" Well....it looks a lot like this.
Minimum of 4 servings of straight veg in this meal, definitely 1/2 my plate in veggies. Never fear eating veggies for breakfast. It's our most important meal of the day, and should be the healthiest! No nasty standard american breakfasts allowed in my house. We eat real paleo-friendly foods full of color and life.
Today, I sautéed cabbage, chard stems, asparagus in coconut oil. Threw in some leftover roasted chicken. Served on a bed of chard greens and topped with a hard boiled egg. If this isn't real food, I don't know what is!
Added bonus: the chard and asparagus are homegrown!
To all of my patients, followers, friends: keep up the good work! Eating real food is more simple than it seems, you just have to be open minded. Happy Sunday!
