One of the best things I’ve done for myself this year is to transition from eating sugary cereal for breakfast to drinking a green smoothie for breakfast instead.

There are all kinds of varieties of green smoothies, and they’re probably not at all what you’re imagining.

Most of them begin with a puree of spinach or kale or other greens, and then fruits and vegetables are added in from there.

The result is a fruit-sweetened, delicious, palatable, filling beverage that is full of things that are good for you!  

It’s truly the best thing you can do for your body in the morning.

If I challenged you to drink a green smoothie every day for two weeks, would you do it? Here are some recipes to get you started.
