Sometimes I want something light yet filling in the mornings. Smoothie bowls are a great way to sneak in your fiber first thing. Not only will you feel refreshed, you won't feel as lethargic as you would with heavy carbs like a donut or sandwich. You'll have more energy and feel full longer.

There are many ways to be creative and switch up the flavours.
