Benefits of Green Smoothies

Eating a well balanced, plant-based diet is definitely one the most powerful things you can do for your health. Most Americans are not eating near the amount of vegetables they should be, so making a green smoothie is a great way to pack fruits and veggies into your diet. Green smoothies are also a fantastic way to get kids to eat their veggies. Blend one up for breakfast for a great “on the go” option.
