I have a bunch of variations of green smoothies depending on what fruits and greens I have on hand, but this is my latest concoction.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I have been posting pretty much all healthy dishes lately. I am in the process of creating a “Clean Eating” tab on the blog, where you can go to find healthy recipes. I figure the spring is a good time to get this moving, because most people are trying to get in shape for summer. The food I eat is pretty much healthy all of the time, of course with the occasional splurge. I am very passionate about clean, healthy, and fresh ingredients and I want to share my favorites with you and how I incorporate them into everyday living and meals. Keep checking back, I should have the tab up soon!
