Ever hit that second snooze and wonder how many seconds you could save in the shower, cut down getting ready or maybe just skip breakfast? While the few minutes more of sleep may seem worthwhile in the moment, the empty stomach and unclear focus to your morning routine will catch up to you by noon. I started incorporating “super” smoothies (read: protein) into my morning and found an improvement in my energy levels and performance. With the help of my mom, a personal trainer of 18 years, I hope to inspire you to develop a healthy morning routine that will deliver the same success in the clinic or classroom.
