Mondays are tough for sure, but when I start my week off on the right foot I am always more likely to have a more productive week. Last week I talked a little bit about my goals for the year (like snacking smarter), and how I have been making small steps here and there to help get the nutrition I need; mornings like today I like to start my day off by actually sitting down to have a quick breakfast, and I grab my planner and start drafting my to-do list for the day. When I have a physical outline in front of me that tells me what I need to get done for the day, it helps me remain focused on my goals (and gives me the satisfaction of being able to literally cross items off of my list once I've completed them!)
Today, I'm sharing a yummy smoothie recipe I have been enjoying in the mornings while I write my to-do list. This Chocolate Pecan Pie Smoothie recipe is sweet, nutritious, and has less than 375 calories and 30g sugar per serving!
