I mapped out all the reasons why Green Smoothies are a part of my daily nutrition plan in the post “Why Green Smoothies Rock”.
Quick recap….Green smoothies provide a concentrated amount of fresh greens in quick and convenient drink. Plus blending greens and fruits together breaks down the cells of these plants which improves digestibility and makes it easier for your body to assimilate.
These all natural smoothies provide a powerful boost of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients without bogging down your digestive system. Drinking your greens in the most optimum form for your digestibility and nutrient absorption leaves you feeling more vibrant and energized!
Incorporating more greens and natural foods has been a goal of mine – especially since the start of my pregnancy. A great starter recipe can be found above. I typically use a cup or so of water, coconut milk or hemp milk for my liquid, then add a couple cups of greens, a fruit and a scoop of protein based powder – right now using Veganique.
Simple yet flexible to create so many tasty recipes.
To make sure I have all bases covered, I turn to those who are experts…including vegetarian nutrition expert, Kardena Pauza.

“Maybe you’re feeling sluggish or you’re feeling tired more often, maybe overall your digestive system feels impaired or you’re getting bloated more often, maybe you have put on extra weight in the form of fat, maybe you don’t have the mental clarity you used to, or your skin is not as youthful looking as it used to be, or maybe you are simply feeling more congested or have a “stuffy” nose all the time.
Whatever the reason, I guarantee that 90% of these symptoms are from a build up of excess toxins in your body.” ~ Kardena
