We’ve been getting a lot of requests lately for breakfasts that aren’t eggs. More people than we could have ever imagined have egg allergies and breakfast for them can sometimes be limited. That, and most people need a break from eating eggs every morning!

So we decided to take the smoothie route. Not everyone on a low carb diet enjoys smoothies because they are usually fruit based. Not ours! There’s not a single fruit in our green breakfast smoothie… unless you count avocado. Each ingredient lends not only to the gorgeous green smoothie’s color but provides necessary nutrients to kick start your day. Think celery is just a filler vegetable? Think again:
