As this interminable winter starts to draw to a close, I’ve found myself gravitating back toward my daily green smoothie routine. I have to say, the difference in my health and vitality is night and day!

Loaded with nutrients, they are major health powerhouses, and the best part is, you can eat them as much as you want!

Salads, cooked greens, greens in your eggs, greens tossed into soup, and as a side for pretty much anything you’re eating — they are super easy to make into a daily habit.
