Stay Healthy, Eat Your Greens!

Mama always said...

When it comes to smoothies and fresh juices, we believe the greener the GREATER!  The more plant-based nutrients you can pack into one glass, the better. Think of your fridge or grocery list like your medicine cabinet - achieve wellness by fuelling your body with the right stuff. A simple green smoothie in the morning or packed for later in the day is the perfect 'multivitamin' to boost your immune system and stay on track with your health.

Eat Your Greens!

Leafy greens are packed full of vitamins, minerals and disease-fighting phytochemicals. Try adding kale, spinach, parsley, mint or cilantro to your green concoctions! Green foods are low in sugars and packed with fibre and water, helping to regulate your blood sugar levels throughout the day.

Not everything in your green drink has to be green; the higher the green content the more nutritious but sometimes you need a few other flavours to break it up. Here's some other amazing additions that boost flavour and still pack a health punch:

  • fresh-squeezed lemon, grapefruit or orange
  • honey
  • apple
  • any berries
  • cold tea
  • watermelon

Finding ways to incorporate a more plant-based diet leads to numerous health benefits. Vitamins and minerals, anti-inflammation and disease prevention, fibre and happy digestion not to mention it involves less impact on our planet. Let us know your favourite green recipes on Facebook and Twitter
