The Skinny on Green Smoothies

We've all been there, rushing in the morning, trying to get ready for school or work and your skinny jeans are just too tight for comfort. So you panic and swear by all saints that you will never eat another piece of food in your life...that is, until your stomach starts signaling otherwise. And then you realize, you can't live without food.

Then you must decide, what to eat. If you are like me, easy and convenient will do the trick.

 Green Smoothies are easy, light, packed with vitamins and minerals. Vegans swear by them. Vegetarians love them. Even those who eat meat like them. So next time you're in a hurry and want something that is not only good for you, but will be super healthy too, have a green smoothie. Green smoothies cancel out a lot of the sugars that you would have with regular smoothie, and believe me, cutting out the sugar is a great thing! You can even add a protein powder to them to make them more satisfying. You can have them as a morning snack 3 hours after you eat breakfast or right between your lunch and dinner.

Here is my favorite recipe:

8 oz of Almond milk
1 Cup of Spinach
1/2 a spoon of ground flax seed ( its super packed with Omega 3 and 6)
1/2 an apple or a peach

This smoothie is delicious, light and easy to make. Remember, we are what we eat! Motivating you is my motivation!
