Now that we’ve wrapped up the year and beginning anew, it’s a good time for a fresh start. That means getting back to healthy foods and healthy routines again.
Smoothies are a good thing and a great way to increase the amount of fruits and vegetables we eat. Too many of us look to the next best fad diet instead of what’s right in front of us. Instead of low carb, calorie counting, magic pill taking or using a special wrap, it really comes down to simplicity. Eat simple, real foods, mostly plants!
That’s why I love this new ebook called 40 Days of Green Smoothies by Becky Striepe. It’s the perfect companion to do just that!
Eat Your Veggies
Fresh fruits and vegetables are key for energy, detox, blood sugar stability, and fighting free radicals & inflammation, without hurting your waistline. If you are looking for a magic trick, a fresh green smoothie, filled with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals is what you need to give you more energy for the day. Want to stabilize blood sugar levels? Add a fresh, apple to your smoothie. It is filled with fiber and pectin for gut and bowel support, and chromium to help with cravings. Do you feeling sluggish? Stop drinking energy drinks and make yourself a smoothie with lemon to support your liver and increase your energy. Most of the health benefits you are looking for can be found in your local market or produce aisle.

O that sounds like a fun invigorating smoothie!
The ginger sure makes it more fun!
Where can I find ginger juice? Is ginger paste an alternative? Can’t seem to find and really want to try!
Nicole Dawson says
You can either grate a raw chunk of ginger and press the juice from it or some natural grocery stores have ginger shots that would work too. Worse case, just add a teaspoon of dried ginger.

I love sweet and spicy combos and ginger, not to mention my smoothies! Will have to give this one a try as, love the addition of chia seeds I love adding them to breakfast smoothies!
Chia seeds are a great way to sneak in extra fiber & protein for sure!
I love adding mango to smoothies but I especially love the ginger in this one!
I agree. Sometimes those little changes make the biggest difference.
I love adding hemp hearts as an add in as well as Chia seeds for extra protein…..they also keep me fuller longer. This looks like a delicious recipe for a smoothie….love the addition of ginger.
