Green #Smoothie #Recipe

I'm in love with vegetables (and fruit)! I love nearly everything in the green department for vegetables. I know this is not a favorite color among many. So, I recommend two things: 1) blend up a smoothie and / or 2) eat whole food nutrition in a capsule or chewable!

This morning we made a green smoothie comprising of banana, pineapple with its core, fresh spinach and kale, water and ice. Fill Vitamix in this order. Blend for 30 seconds.

*Benefits of banana: potassium, rich in vitamin B6, elimination properties (think electrolytes)
*Benefits of pineapple: antioxidants and inflammatory properties, highest in Maganese, digestive benefits
*Benefits of spinach: antioxidants, carotenoids, highest in Vitamins K, A, C and folate
*Benefits of kale: cholesterol lowering benefits, Omega 3 properties, detox support, several dozen flavonoids, high in vitamins K, A, and C, inflammatory properties

What is your favorite green smoothie recipe? Don't have one? Try this one! Then share with me your favorite smoothie (one that you make). 

Choose, eat, and live well! =)
