It's pretty obvious that the new year makes a lot of people think hard about getting healthier and losing weight. You can't watch tv or surf the web without seeing some type of advertisement for a gym or a new weightloss product right now. We talked about goal setting in Monday's post, and I definitely fit in with the crowd desiring to get healthier and lose weight. Green smoothies are a great way to do that, and I'm going to try and drink a few green smoothies a week to help me achieve my goals. This recipe is a great one for losing weight and the fruit helps hide the 2 cups of kale. It's a great way to sneak fruits and vegetables into your family as well! I got my Blendtec a few months ago and I have to say it's been a life changer in the smoothie making department. Having a setting that makes a perfect smoothie every time and can grind basically everything is pretty helpful. I know everyone seems to sing praises about the Blendtec, but it's well deserved (and no, we aren't sponsored by them)!
