My Daily Greens

Happy Saturday! Who's ready for the weekend?!

Today is your last reminder about the supplement sale going on this weekend at Whole Foods Market! 25% off ALL of your favorite superfoods and supplements! If you don't know what you should be stocking up on, let me know and I'll send you some tips ;) 

 As I mentioned yesterday, I am posting several of my favorite smoothie recipes in honor of this sale! So...today is 3/3, and I have saved my absolute favorite for last! This may not compare to the creaminess and dessert like feeling of the mint chip, but this one is my life force. I am ALL about getting my greens in, and this smoothie makes it so so easy! I notice a huge difference in my energy, skin, immunity, and digestion when I drink this smoothie compared to when I don't. So, give it a go! If you don't like greens, you can always add extra fruit!

A Note on Spirulina:

  • Spirulina is a blue green algae, and is one of the most talked about superfoods. It is known for many things... but here are a few. 
  1. Boosts Energy
  2. High in Protein, Iron, Vitamin B12, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K. 
  3. Detoxes Heavy Metals 
  4. Eliminates Candida 
  5. Anti-Cancerous 
  6. Heart Health 

Spirulina has a strong taste, but it doesn't take much to get the full benefit. So even 1/2 teaspoon a day will do a lot of good!
