As you can see, I had this one to go. It was my breakfast yesterday, and boy was it good. It was refreshing and filling and kept me satisfied enough so I didn’t gorge myself at my work potluck.
If you wanted, you could add a little shredded zucchini to this, or a squeeze of lime. Any way you make it, it will keep you going so you can get things done!
