Green smoothies are a great way to start the day because, they not only energize you, but also help boost your mood!
If you're new to green smoothies this is a good one to start with as it tastes like chocolate from the cacao! Chocolate is made from the cacao plant and it's packed with antioxidants.
Leafy greens are one the healthiest foods we can eat. They've shown to help prevent some of the top killers like heart disease and cancer.
I never thought I'd stop drinking my morning cup of coffee until I started drinking green smoothies. I feel better all around and have more energy.
They're good any time of day as they provide our bodies with essential nutrients. You can add different superfoods for even more of a boost.
It only takes 2 weeks of adding more plant-based foods in your life to start feel better. Smoothies are an easy way to do that. Check out my smoothie guide for more tips on making healthy smoothies!
