Leave a comment

Here’s to 2017! What changes do you plan to make in the next year? Some of the best advice I’ve received is to focus on changing my daily habits. Over time, these daily changes will add up to a lifestyle change! This said, a great way to make an attainable change is to start the year off with healthy choices. For you, this may look like replacing your grab and go granola bar in the mornings with a  power food filled Fruit Smoothie. Half Baked Harvest has compiled an excellent guide to smoothie making that will jumpstart your resolutions. Happy New Year!
