Wake Up Right With This Rise And Shine Smoothie!

If you're not big on breakfast or you're always on the go, a Rise And Shine Smoothie can be a lifesaver! Getting much needed nutrients in the a.m. is essential to maintaining a balanced weight and staying healthy. Trying this Blendtec recipe will make anyone a morning person! You can blend up the goodness of ginger root and stress-relieving power of peaches and take it with you wherever you go. Ginger root has been hailed for centuries for promoting gastrointestinal health. It eradicates gas and eases digestion while curing nausea. It also significantly reduces inflammation in the body to ward off disease, from common colds and flus to certain types of cancer!  Also in the Rise And Shine Smoothie are the energizing benefits of maca powder which can wake you up better than any cup of coffee. Maca also gets rid of skin blemishes and reduces period pains like cramps, bloating and moodiness. Inspired by the BodyRock Meal plan, this smoothie is sure to get your body moving!
