Green Smoothies – A small change can provide HUGE results.
Life with 3 kids is no walk in the park. There are days that I don’t know what day it is or even what time it is – and there are more than a few days I wonder how we even survive our busy schedules! So when people tell me they “don’t have time” to eat healthy I just chuckle inside and think…yeah because I have so much extra “time”, lol! (Moms you all know exactly what I meanJ)
So what is the magic key to success?! Well we all know what it is – MEAL PREP! My family has our moments when we are not prepared and guess what happens? Our choices become LIMITED! So what do we do? MEAL PREP!!! I always try a keep a few good choices in the freezer for when we are in a pinch!
Last week we had somewhere to be every evening – we normally try to avoid scheduling our lives so chaotic, but sometimes life can’t be avoided. In an effort to have good choices on hand I spent a few minutes over the weekend getting my ingredients together for green smoothies! #ilovegreensmoothies
I am a huge fan of green smoothies. They are easy, nutritious and delicious! And on top of that my kiddos LOVE them! I try to have one everyday. They are great workout fuel as well! Adding a green smoothie to your daily routine can have enormous health benefits!
My favorite Green Smoothie – Pre Workout Snack
1 c Spinach (I use fresh spinach that I have previously frozen)
1 c Cashew milk
¼- ½ Avocado
¼ Tsp Vanilla
½- 1 Banana
Handful of Ice
I was hesitant to try this gem – but it is delicious!!!
I get a ton of recipes from www.simplegreensmoothies.com . It’s also fun creating new recipes and my kids really enjoy inventing new smoothies!You can throw some protein powder in there and you have a complete meal!
