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! (Want to WIN this? Keep reading)
