A note about serious food allergies

While you love your Home Chef dinners (and don't forget the leftovers for lunch!), it also sounds like you want to start the day off with something light, clean, and full of vitamins. Enter this smoothie. Packed with kale, citrus, and phytonutrients (the good stuff that powers up your cells), this elixir gets its creamy, dreamy drinkability from avocado, which is loaded with brain-supporting fats (the good-for-you kind). This is truly a good day in a glass, so drink up!
