2012 has been very healthful year for my family. We’ve eliminated all artificial flavors and colors and most chemicals from our diet…of course some things sneak in once in a while ;) but overall we’re a very healthy family. But one thing we need to work on is more leafy green vegetables, so green smoothies are an easy way to ensure we’re all getting more.
2013 means at least one green smoothie everyday for everyone in our family…well for 30 days straight at least during the 30 day green smoothie challenge I signed up for. After 1 month of green smoothies I’m sure it’ll become a natural habit for all of us. Along with green smoothies there will also be plenty more juicing – especially fresh orange and carrot juice.
If you’re up for the challenge and want to join, go see the gals at Simply Green Smoothies and register. You can follow my challenge here on naturalmommie.com and on my facebook and instagram. I’ll be posting pictures and recipes of all the green smoothies I make for myself and my family.
I’ll share my recipe for one of my favorites (pictured below) tomorrow. It’s refreshing, sweet and tastes nothing like grass, I promise. So go buy a magic bullet if you don’t have one (you don’t need a fancy schmancy blender!) and get ready for your healthiest year yet!
Happy New Year!
