One way you can incorporate some more fruits and vegetables into your diet is by making smoothies! Try these 14 Heathy Smoothies to Kick off the New Year with!

Eating healthy is not so much a diet as it is a lifestyle. To be healthier a person needs to understand that the changes being made are not quick fixes, but should be permanent practices incorporated into everyday life.
Smoothies for Breakfast
It’s called the most important meal of the day for a reason. What is eaten for breakfast can impact a person’s entire day. Eating breakfast (or drinking it) is important because it helps curb hunger later in the day, preventing nibbles and snacks which feel insignificant, but really add up.
Making Better Snacking Decisions
Many fruits are high in fiber, which will fill a person up and keep hunger at bay for longer. In addition, fruits are high in antioxidants, which help rid the body of toxins and prevent diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. So load up your blender or smoothie maker with wonderful fruits, some veggies, and other ingredients to help you and your family with better snacking!
