Most people rely on breakfast for the fuel their body needs after a long night of rest. While others can get by with a simple fresh glass of vegetable juice, BarleyMax or a smoothie for breakfast, some adults and young children could use more of a boost before work and school.
If you want to mix things up and exchange your usual vegetable juice breakfast for something different, consider the following delicious recipes.
Remember: We highly recommend using organic ingredients as much as possible.
