Charissa Areington is a Hong Kong-based health and fitness nutritional coach who brings us a delicious recipe each week. The recipes are based on Nuzest, a premium supplement designed to provide the body with the balance of vitamins and minerals it needs. This month, we’re concentrating on breakfast. It may be the most important meal of the day, but it can also be simple and nutritious, helping boost our energy levels and brain alertness while avoiding those on-the-go coffee-and-croissant mornings! One example is this Dark Chocolate Cherry Berry Smoothie Recipe.
