Pumpkin Power Smoothie

I feel like it’s that time of year when schedules overlap, flu season has arrived, the holidays are near…the list could go on forever.

I know it’s easy to fall into the cycle of not taking care of ourselves during stressful times. Breakfast is a perfect way to take a few minutes to relax, read something uplifting, and eat a meal that makes you feel good. For me, I’ve been reading Maya Angelou’s Letter to My Daughter while I sip on my favorite pumpkin smoothie. I find myself waking up early just to start the day.
