SOME MORNINGS CAN BE AWFULLY BUSY, AND BETWEEN TRYING TO GET THAT EXTRA 10 MINUTES OF SLEEP AND RUSHING OFF TO CONQUER THE DAY YOU SOMETIMES JUST DON'T HAVE THE TIME FOR A FULLY COOKED BREAKFAST. BUT HAVING A NUTRITIOUS START TO THE DAY IS SO IMPORTANT TO KICKSTART YOUR METABOLISM AND KEEP YOU FULL AND ENERGISED UNTIL LUNCH. KAYLA ITSINES, FITNESS INSTRUCTOR AND FOUNDER OF BBG AND SWEAT, HAS A QUICK, EASY, AND NUTRITIOUS BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE RECIPE EXACTLY FOR THOSE EARLY MORNING RUSHES.
