Kick Starting Monday

I woke up this morning craving a really good green smoothie!

If you haven't tried a green smoothie before, you are missing out! Not only are they delicious, but they are SO healthy for you. They are a way to kick start your day off fresh, giving your body a giant load of veggies and a little bit of fruit! In that one smoothie, is a whole days worth of good food and nutrients, making you feel great all day. Smoothies are filling, but you always feel really light and energised after them. You can pack them full of vegetables that you normally wouldn't eat a lot of, and somehow, they always manage to taste pretty amazing!

There is a time and a place for 'juices'. They are delicious, and really healthy as well!! But as a meal replacement, I find smoothies better. Smoothies are 'whole foods', just blended up together to taste delicious. Really quick and easy, and perfect if you've got things to do, or are running out the door. Just chuck things in, blend, pour and you're on your way with a ridiculously healthy meal.

When you're making up your own smoothies, try and pair fruits and vegetables together that you think will complement each other. Also try to have more vegetables in your smoothie than you do fruit. Be a little sneaky and throw in something like broccoli or celery! You're body will love you for it, and you won't even be able to taste it.

This was my smoothie this morning. Feel free to give it a go! Or switch out the ingredients for something similar. OR, make up your own completely!

  1. My green drink doesn't mix well with cocoa though (at least for my taste buds). The taste is as good as I'm assuming to be – though Green drink does give amounts of everything that is in there.
