Hungry and short on time? Here is my go-to pick-me-up smoothie. It also makes a great breakfast on the go paired with some protein.
Favorite Green Smoothie
Blend, pour into a jar with a well-fitting lid and off you go.
Besides being a veritable cornucopia of vitamins and minerals, spinach is low in fat and cholesterol, has a dash of protein, and is a great source of dietary fiber.
Mint has been associated with health benefits in many areas: digestion, nausea and headache, respiratory disorders, asthma, breast feeding, depression and fatigue, skin care, memory loss, weight loss, sterility, oral care, allergies and hay fever, and cancer.
Vitamins B6, A, and C. These are also a good source of natural sweetness and dietary fiber.
Just go easy on these as they are mostly sugar. You can choose to use more water and less juice if you are watching your sugar intake.
