Yesterday I shared one of my go-to “easy cook” meals, but today is for my second place go-to. When I am so tired, or sick, or just plain don’t feel like eating real food unless someone else brings it to me. Smoothies are common for breakfasts or snacks, but they also make terrific lunches or dinners. And they can hide a lot of nutrition in a tasty thick shake, perfect for first trimester pregnant ladies who can’t stand the sight of vegetables (please tell me I wasn’t the only one!) or sick kiddos, or anytime!

This smoothie carefully balance carbohydrates, protein, and fats, along with vitamin-rich fruits and veggies to pack a meal’s worth of nutrition into one glass, ensuring a daily dose of goodness.
