You know what +Kita Roberts? Me too! I find when I start my day with a smoothie, the rest of my day goes SO much better! Why is that? I guess because when you make important decisions like that early in the day...the rest of the day just falls in place. :)

  • Rory Freedman (author of the bestselling book series, Skinny Bitch),
  • Marshall Goldsmith (Top business coaches in the country)
  • Helen Fisher (Biological anthropologist, author of several books on the topic of love)
