Wellness Wednesday

Happy Wednesday Friends!  Ever since my Dr. Oz Cleanse, I have been trying to improve my smoothie making skills.  I used to just make the basics for me and my family, strawberry banana, berry smoothies, mostly all fruit based.  But now, I am getting really creative with adding vegetables to my smoothies.  Spinach is a great option, it doesn't carry much taste or texture to you smoothie, just be sure to add it first.  Cucumber is also a refreshing option.  Start out with a little, and as you get accustomed to adding veggies, add more.  So, my Wellness Wednesday tip for you this week, is to try adding veggies to your smoothies, you'll get more bang for your sip.  Pull your blender out, dust it off, get creative, and enjoy.

Here's a picture and the recipe from today's veggie smoothie...
It's Cool to be Green: 2 big handfuls of spinach, 1 cup of water, 4 baby carrots, 1/3 of a long cucumber, 1tbsp ground flax seed, juice from 1/4 of lime, 1/2 banana, 5 whole strawberries, 5 mango chunks. Blend until desired consistency.
