Going Green...

     I have been inspired in the last few days through a good friend and a good book... the friend would not want me to make much over her... although, she is much to make over... but, the book is "Green Smoothie Revolution" by Victoria Boutenko. I enjoyed a wonderful few hours with my friend and read the book in a single was that good!

     Both encounters spurred me on into the art of making green smoothies. They are amazing nutrition and very tasty!

    The litmus test for me is alway my kids and a resounding "WE LOVE IT!" went up as they took the first and last sip! These are going to become a daily routine in our house... they are so healthy and a great way to sneak greens into your kids!

This is a must read and a must do kind of thing!
