Why? Because life is busy, stress exists and healthy eating is challenging. Especially post holidays. Maybe you’ve tried a million diets. Maybe you can’t shake constant bloat or fatigue. Perhaps you’re dealing with some more deep-rooted concerns and don’t know where to begin. Yeah, been there. Well, don’t worry. You found the spot.
Green smoothies are everywhere these days. Health nuts love them, moms hide vegetables in them and folks who hate salad have found their way. Even my roommate who ‘hates’ vegetables now makes them daily. He just calls them his morning milkshake.
Nutritionally speaking, it’s unwise to assume a store bought smoothie is up to par with your home made version.
Homemade Dried Fruit is one of my favorite snacks. I like it because I know exactly what’s in it…100% whole fruit. The kind of dried fruit that you get at the store usually has additional ingredients, such as preservatives, salt, and sugar. These ingredients are added to “enhance” flavor and prolong shelf life.
