The Secret to a Nutritionally Balanced Breakfast Smoothie

Have you ever sipped down a smoothie for breakfast only to be hungry before noon? 

Kelly LeVeque of Be Well by Kelly can change that. A certified holistic nutritionist and health coach based in L.A., Kelly has created what she calls the Be Well Smoothie — a magical formula that helps your body access stored energy, supports your immune system and avoids blood sugar spikes.

The key? A balance of protein, fat and fiber that's sure to keep you full till lunchtime. If you give your body enough of those three elements, then you will elongate your blood sugar curve — put simply, you will have all the energy your body needs to fuel a 4-6 hour window between meals.

So, go ahead, totally transform your morning with this craving-reducing recipe.
