Get Your Greens

Here's an easy way to get your dark leafy greens in: tuck them in your morning smoothie! (or afternoon and evening) I read that it's good to vary up the greens a lot with choices like romaine, red leaf lettuce, spinach, arugula, carrot greens, beet greens, butter lettuce (yum!), spring greens, etc... You won't taste them much in a smoothie with fruit and it's a great way to get those medicinal properties of the greens in!

Here is what I am making this morning:

Berries and Greens Smoothie:

1 cup strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 banana
1/2 bunch romaine lettuce
2 cups water

This should make about 1 quart. You can keep it in the fridge and have it all day long!
