People who follow a Paleo diet eat more vegetables than most people. They know leafy green vegetables pack a serious amount of vitamin and mineral punch; but getting past the bitter taste can be a challenge.
Many of us shy away from eating a wide variety of greens for one simple reason, they are rather bland and a little bitter.
The Green Smoothie to the rescue.
By combining greens with a little fruit you add natural sweetness to curb the bitterness of leafy greens.
Fruit is the “natural sweetener” that helps the medicine of the greens go down easier. But you know, fruit is high in sugar and for that reason, you may want to use only enough to make the green smoothie taste good.
This book has 100 “carefully chosen” smoothie recipes. Besides green smoothies, the book includes breakfast smoothies, alkaline smoothies, detox smoothies, and low calorie smoothies. A short description before each category will dial you in on the different types.
Get creative! Smoothies can provide a great opportunity to try new combos of fruits and vegetables. Experimenting with new ingredients keeps your smoothies interesting. Smoothie-On everybody!
