It's always been a challenge for me to eat my vegetables. I've always loved fruits and hated veggies. I wish I were a salad guy, but I'm not, so I've found a new way to eat green vegetables every day.
I throw them in a smoothie. My wife started doing this when she became pregnant, and I finally decided to join her. Now I love it and it's become a daily ritual.
First, everything goes in the blender. Yesterday we had kale, spinach, mango, blueberries, oranges, banana, greek yogurt and flax seed. And ice, adding ice at the end makes it better.
Then, we blend it.
Then, we drink it. It's yummy!
Kale is a staple of our smoothies, because of its many health benefits, but we'll add different vegetables depending upon what's in the fridge. The other day we added broccoli. If you're like me and you just don't like broccoli, this is definitely the way to go.
