What do gluten free and green smoothies have to do with each other? Everything.
Why is this smoothie called the Green Monster Smoothie? Because I live near Boston and I’m a Red Sox fan and I have a secret wish to sit in the Green Monster section of Fenway.
Since becoming the Gluten Free Diva Health Coach, part of my journey has included crowding out the foods that don’t contribute positively to good health with foods that have everything to do with supporting my desire to be healthy. And that’s where green smoothies come in. I have one of these green babies every single day. Of course, I change it up. They never taste the same because I’m constantly experimenting. Today’s yumminess included grapefruit juice which has a bitter sort of tastae, but by the time you add the rest of the ingredients, you really only taste a hint of the grapefruit.
Get your greens on. It will make a HUGE difference in your health. I’m not talking about just having a salad every day. That doesn’t count. It’s not enough. If you want to start seeing a decrease in your inflammation, if you want to start seeing an increase in your energy as well as about a million other improvements, start incorporating one of these into your everyday food choices.
