Good food has always been close to my heart but this year I’ve become even more and more interested in it. Why you should eat something and not something else.
Last winter I made my first green smoothie and read more about green leafy vegetables.
There are plenty of reasons to include green leafy vegetables into your daily diet. Here’s one recent research showing you why.
It turned out that green leafy veggies are brain boosters! Knowing this made me hunt for more recipes.
You know what I found out?
It’s not easy to find recipes that are both A) healthy AND B) delicious.
Even more difficult it is to find recipes that are healthy, delicious and C) simple.
But I continued my testing despite of some pretty awful experiences. Now I’m thinking that I should have actually shown you some pics about them. Just to give you a heads up, you know…
Well, I learned to use other stuff, like berries, fruits and veggies (other than green) more diversely. I also experiment on replacing less healthy ingredients like white sugar and wheat flour with ingredients that were healthier and more nutritious.
The results of my “On The Way To Deliciously Healthy Diet Project” was that my head and body both felt better and more energetic.
I thought: I really need to start sharing all this info and recipes in our blog.
Last winter carrot-pineapple smoothie was IN in our family. This autumn it has been spinach-fruit smoothie.
I’ve shared this recipe already with some of my friends and they’ve loved it too.
All you need for this simple spinach-fruit smoothie:
- Big Handful Of Spinach Leaves
- 1 Orange
- 2 Kiwis
- 2 Bananas
So this is the smoothie we drink every week at the moment.
If you want to start using some green leafy veggies every day this smoothie might be a good way to start.
Just try this at least once with one small handful of spinach!
