ever since we got the vitamix, we have been making so many smoothies. they really are the perfect breakfast. and they’re a pretty easy way to cut back on unnecessary carbs and calories. our pre-smoothie breakfasts (and, okay, our weekend breakfasts, too) are so sugary or carb loaded there was no way we’d drop a pound. chocolate filled croissants, cinnamon pancakes, last night’s dinner leftovers served on top of potato hash. it’s hard to cut out food that’s so delicious – but, we’re trying. and every little bit helps.
