Rain is rapping on your windows, your hair has gone haywire and your eyes puffed up like a macaroon. The day isn’t ruined just yet. Do something good for body, mind and spirit (and taste buds!) by mixing a cleansing carrot cake protein smoothie, rich in beta-carotene. When beta-carotene converts to vitamin A, you get antioxidant protection for your eyes, teeth and skin. It’s like an instant beauty potion you can drink with a smile. Ahh, what a good morning!
