It’s amazing how many healthy fruits and veggies you can pack into one green smoothie.
To be clear, there is nothing guilt worthy about this green smoothie, only the actions of the weekend prior to consuming it.
We ventured to the grocery store yesterday and stocked up on all things healthy. Kale, Spinach, frozen fruit, chia seeds. You get the idea – outer most sections of the store. My mom was nice enough to come over last night to share some mint with me. It’s my little addition that makes the smoothie really refreshing!
Now that everything is rinsed, chopped and blended I’m feeling instantly better about myself. It’s amazing how many fruits and vegetables you can jam in there!
