One of the many wonderful aspects of the holidays is sharing delicious, and yes often decadent, food with your loved ones. However the holidays can leave you feeling a little sluggish, like “meh” for days. Rather than try to eat less after the holidays, I make it a goal to eat better. No need to stress your body out, just treat it to what it’s looking for. Most likely that’s a big dose of greens.
No, you don’t have to eat salads for the next 10 days straight, but you can find fun ways to incorporate greens into each meal. One of my favorite ways to do that is by adding the green stuff to my AM routine in the form of a smoothie. Green smoothies can get a bad rap for tasting, well a little “too green” but I’ve rounded up 6 healthy, nutrient packed and delicious green combinations that will give you that boost your body’s craving.
