Green for Life

green for life

The book, Green for Life, by Victoria Boutenko, was a wonderful discovery for me.

Most of us know that we need to eat more greens, but we find it hard to get enough of them into our diet. This book will teach you not only about the incredible nutritional value that leafy greens contain, it will also show you how easy it is to get these greens into your daily meals. How?

Smoothies!

It was unbelievable to me that I could make a smoothie that tasted sweet, with delicious fresh, ripe fruit in it…and that it also had spinach or kale or some other leafy green powerhouse. Since I’ve read this book, I have made smoothies for me and my family almost every morning. Not only can you throw in healthy greens, you can add some omega 3 foods like ground flax seeds, hemp seeds or chia seeds.

Don’t be afraid to try smoothies…all you need is a blender. I use an old one that still works fine. Sure, a fancy Vitamix would be cool, and it does wonders, but it is not necessary to get started.
