Essential Eats: Smoothies!

     Hey everyone. Welcome back to the blog that it used to be. I hope you all are enjoying me bringing back the things that were the core of this blog when I first started it. Now that my love for dancing has returned, I am finally able to write about the things I was passionate about years ago.
     Anyways, today's post is about three smoothies that are phenomenal for dancers, and surprisingly are also really good for people with Gastroparesis. So let's sip right in (no pun intended).
