Thought of breakfast making your stomach turn? Whip up a smoothie that you can sip throughout the morning. Blitz our Morning Sunshine smoothie for a fruity dose vitamins and minerals that will keep your body ticking over until lunchtime. Sprinkle in some seeds or add a tablespoon of nut butter for a tasty protein hit with no extra effort; chia seeds add a nice nutty flavour to our Super Berry Smoothie. Finally, sneak in some spinach and cucumber with a Zingy Green Juice because — let’s be honest with ourselves — sometimes veggies do get a bit neglected. Who said 5 a day is hard work?
