Busy morning, on your way out to your a.m jog or late dropping off the kids to school?  Skip the processed, ready-made frozen waffles or sugary pastries, while they may be, oh so  delish, but they will totally drain your body for that boost, that you need, to start the day and they are not great for your digestive system. 

People with skin disorders such as acne, rosacea and psoriasis often suffer from constipation, which is caused from an unbalanced diet, such as, not enough water, too much processed foods, inactive lifestyle or not enough fiber.  Bad skin is usually a sign of a bad digestive system.  Ground flaxseed is an easy way to add fiber to your diet. So, opt for this effortless morning shake, filled with protein, potassium, calcium, fiber, and omega-3s, and voila your ready to conquer your morning.
