Smoothies and Protein shakes are a great way to start your day or to kick the habit of snacking on naughty treats throughout the day! Christmas is round the corner…along with all the chocolate and sweets that come with it! Like Halloween with it’s overwhelming sweet treats, Christmas brings us Mince pies, Christmas pudding, chocolate Santa’s and advent calendars! Oh those pesky advent calendars, they get me every time!
