Are you busy and think it takes too much time and effort to prepare healthy food?
Green smoothies are the easiest and healthiest “fast food” ever. When I am really busy and don’t really have the time to prepare a nutritious meal – I make a green smoothy! It has everything in it that my body needs, the nutrients, the proteins and the fibers – it keeps me glowing and energized for hours on end. I make a big portion, put it in the fridge and even when I’m heading out on the road, away all day, I can bottle it and take it with me to enjoy later.

Yaay the sun is finally shining here on the West coast of British Columbia! But before I head out to soak up the sunshine I want to share this simple but delicious juice recipe with you!
One of the best things you can ever add to your health routine is drinking green juice and green smoothies – if you don’t do anything else drink your greens!
Before I knew about the green juice and green smoothie trick – I just did not get enough fruit and vegetables. I had vegetables and fruit every day but not a lot. I would always start with eating big portions of meat and potatoes – yes I was such a big meat and potato kind of girl!! I would load my plate with meat and potatoes and then after filling my self, I would have a tiny little salad or a few of the cooked veggies – I was too full.
Then I started drinking green smoothies and making green juice and the rest is history – by doing that I get so much more veggies and fruit, in fact I get more than I would ever be able to eat and chew my way though and I love it!!
With every green drink I felt like eating more greens and vegetables – my taste buds changed and I got tons of energy.
Here is the juice I made just now.
This one is made with collard greens, apples and a couple of sticks of celery. Served with ice on the rocks, stirred not shaken 🙂 Enjoy!
