Green smoothies are a great way to get a serving of veggies in at the top of your day, and make a great carrier for any liquid or powdered supplements you may be taking. Here's on of my favorites:
-1 medium organic banana (ripe)
-1/2 cup frozen organic mango
-1/2 cup frozen organic pineapple
-1-2 cups of organic spinach
-1 tsp Hawaiian spirulina
-1 small chunk of ginger (thumb-print sized)
-water to desired consistency
-Using frozen fruit instead of ice creates a very smooth texture, however, if you only have fresh fruit, just add 1 cup of ice to this recipe.
-You can store and freeze all of the fruit ingredients together ahead of time to have a quick and easy, "just add water," meal or snack for on-the-go.

Spring roll salads are one of my favorite ways to get all the veggies. This combination of fruits and veggies will give you a great boost of folate and vitamin c, and plenty of healthy fats from avocado and almond.
- 4-8oz organic spinach
- 1 organic red peppers
- 1 organic cucumber
- 1 avocado
- 1 cup broccoli (slaw/salad)
- 1/4 cup shredded carrot
- 1 cup mango
- 1 cup organic garbanzo beans (optional)
Sriracha Dressing Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1/8 to 1/4 cup organic gluten-free soy sauce
- juice of 1 lime
- Sriracha sauce to desired heat preference
- Water or almond milk to desired consistency
Serves 2 to 4 (depending on if it's a meal or side salad)
