Smoothies are a great way to get your daily calories in check. They generally have about 300-400 calories, and with a good protein powder you'll stay full through lunch time. Plus they are jam-packed with super fresh nutrients and tons of natural fiber. 2- 3 smoothies a week will improve your digestion and immune and keep your weight in check.
