You and I have both heard it all before. Whether it’s said by a friend, family member, or coworker… I’m willing to bet that you have at least ONE person in your life that continues to eat processed junk food, claiming that they don’t have the money to “eat healthy.”
But hey – you are a member of the Fitlife.tv community and know that this is simply NOT TRUE.
With a little creativity and simple preparation, healthy and delicious meals can be made easily, quickly and CHEAPLY right in the comfort of your own kitchen.
This superfood smoothie is a powerfully healthy (and budget friendly) way to get your morning started right – OR makes a great afternoon snack.
