Smoothies For Real

An item we haven’t discussed on the blog in a while is green smoothies. What is up with those things and why is everyone talking about them… yess I’m pushing the Jennifer Aniston link on you again, click here. We’re talking about them because they are awesome.  In laymen terms – smoothies are “good stuff, concentrated”. I know so many people, it makes my heart sing, who have started drinking one a day and are feeling great in all kinds of ways.

It’s really pretty cool how eating your veggies can make you feel better. And when in blended form you’re increasing the “good stuff, concentrated” absorption rate threefold.

Try one a day for 7 days and tell me it didn’t feel good! I’m serious. Try it.
