Good morning and happy March! Our weather as of late has been fooling us into believing it’s December still and not March. We’ve been having cold damp weather, including snow. Ugh, I’m so ready for spring. And spring makes me think of green things and St. Patrick’s Day!
The best green foods one could reach for (St. Patty’s Day or any day) is the whole, natural kind like spinach, kale, chard, collards, lettuce, etc. No chemicals, no additives, nothing harmful or weird. And one excellent way to get those greens is SMOOTHIES!
Green smoothies…mm! Even kids love them! If you’ve never tried one, you’d really be surprised to find how great tasting they are (okay, sometimes when experimenting things can go wrong but follow a tried and true recipe to start and you’ll see).
Hilary Greenleaf, author, educator, and nutritionist, has put together a great e-book and guide on green smoothies, titled, The New Green Smoothie Diet: Going Green Never Tasted So Good.
She gives the reader an introduction to green smoothies, from the basics to the benefits, to the how-tos and the whys, plus so much more. Of course, there are recipes. She has categorized them so depending on what you’re targeting, i.e. detox, weight loss, increased energy, or health issues, you can follow the tips and recipes to help you achieve your goals. The recipes are simple enough with many ingredients easily found at your local market or grocer.
