If we’re lucky, weekends are for sleeping in, working up a sweat (at bootcamp), soaking in the sunshine, savoring the outdoors and sipping on smoothies.  Starting your day with fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds blended into a smoothie is a delicious, easy way to get fiber, vitamins, minerals and other phytonutrients from whole, plant foods.  Cheers to that!
