We can’t all eat spinach from the can like Popeye but we can all benefit from the nutrients that super foods like spinach provide to keep us strong and healthy. Spinach and other leafy greens are dense with vitamins and minerals that can help everything from our skin to our bones. Since it can be difficult to make ourselves – or our kids – drink things that look like vegetables, here are three recipes with greens that aren’t-so-green.

    I like to cook vegetables and then chill them in the frig or freezer. Then I blend them with a little ice and water. I only add enough ice to chill. They are like vegetable juices with the pulp. The fact that my blendtec is 100 times easier to clean up then any juicer I have ever used is worth mentioning. My favorite juices are Brussels sprouts, carrot, and butternut squash. Again, that is only 1 cooked vegetable plus H20. In addition, please note that I feel better after consuming my juice/smoothie.

    I use my Blendtec everyday, but not always for food! I make laundry soap too, blending the dry ingredients to a fine powder using the wildside jar.
