NASA Says This Is The Worlds Best Exercise

The Veggie Julius!

The Smoothie that tastes like a desert, but delivers like a meal. Being bold and extra green on your first smoothie attempt will not win new green smoothie lovers. Baby steps are the key to making a smooth transition to developing a taste for greens in your child’s smoothie. So make those first few smoothies creamy with a lot of fruit and just a hint of green veggies. Then with each smoothie you serve, add a little less fruit and a little more green leaves. Also a little less juice and milk and a lot more filtered water. Your goal is to pack in your child’s daily needs for green vegetables.

Upon my second sip, I declared that every stinkin’ day should be raw chocolate cashew milk day. 90 seconds later, when I guzzled all 16 ounces and tried to move, only to feel it luridly sloshing around in my belly, I revised my opinion and wondered what I can do about incorporating the flavors into something with, say, a little less liquid.

Avocado Mayo!

Many of us do not have to be “sold” on the benefits of avocados—their silky texture and versatile flavor make them hard not to love. But when studies show that avocado-eaters are healthier overall than their counterparts, we feel justified in our love-affair with the green fruit.
