Don't tell anyone…
I once served smoothies for lunch when my hubby was out of town (and I didn't feel the least bit guilty about it!).
Smoothies pair beautifully with your morning bacon and eggs or your lunchtime chicken salad wrap. Yet with the right ingredients, you can get away with serving them as the main course, too!
Here's a whole month's worth of healthy smoothie recipes for you.
These recipes are… different. They're not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill smoothies.
Immune-boosting smoothies? Yes!
How about a smoothie with essential oils? Yep!

Probiotic-filled smoothies? But of course! 😉
