Recently on the BePure blog, we interviewed BePure Clinical Consultant, Lisa Grey, on her favourite way to start the day.

Lisa likes to pre-load her day with a nutrient-rich smoothie. Here's why smoothies are her go to breakfast fo choice and how she keeps them new and exciting, 365 days of the year!

BePure Clinical Consultant - Lisa Grey

Smoothies are a great way to make sure you're giving your body everything it needs and they taste so good!

I keep my smoothie ingredients and blender at work, that way I can workout in the morning and have a nutritious breakfast, ready to go, right after my workout, when I get to work.  

Rather than having one recipe that I have every day, I've created this formula so that I can change it up based on the weather, what's in season, what I have left in my fridge or what I feel like drinking.

The idea behind my smoothie formula is to have fun with it and try new flavour combinations.
