They met with Janella Purcell, nutritionist and author to kick-start their Vitamix 7@7 Go-for-Green Breakfast Challenge: one green smoothie, with at least 7 fruit and vegetables, every morning at 7am, every day for 7 days. This is their story. What will be yours?
Vitamix Australia surveyed the nation about its breakfast eating habits*. Many of us skip breakfast altogether. Some of us eat standing up. Most of us eat nutritionally barren cereal and toast. One in four of us eat white toast.
We are starved of the recommended daily intake of seven fruit and vegetables, and the health, wellness and energy benefits whole foods unlock. Perhaps we're getting our greens at lunch, or dinner? Not usually. According to the Vitamix 7@7 Breakfast Research 2013, almost 1 in 2 Australians get two or less serves of fruits and vegetables every day.
The answer? Re-claim breakfast, and our health, with the Vitamix 7@7 Go-for-Green Breakfast Challenge: at 7am every day, have a green smoothie with at least 7 fruit and vegetables, and do it for at least 7 days.
Our busy lifestyles mean breakfast is increasingly rushed - 75% of us spend less than 15 minutes a day on "the most important meal of the day" - your Vitamix 7@7 Breakfast Challenge is all about using your time better (it takes 5 minutes to make a green breakfast smoothie!), live the difference, then inspire others by sharing your experience!
