I love blending or juicing my greens. Leafy greens are the number one food you can add to your diet to improve your health. The are full of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and are very low in calories. They can help protect you from heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even some cancers.
Pineapple tastes so good right now and has been a great price. I have been cutting it up and freezing it for my smoothies. Always include the core, it contains bromalain which can help reduce inflammation and pain.
Mason jars are a great way to store your smoothies for the day if you are not going to drink it all. Try to not have much air in there so it does not oxidize and drink it within a day or so. Fresh is best! Who had greens today?
I would normally would add lemon to this 🙂
