The Green Smoothie – Part 1: The Basics

When I was first thinking about eating more plants, I was pondering how to get more nutrient-rich greens in my diet.  Thanks to the Beauty Detox Diet book (more about this helpful book here), I was drawn to the power of the green smoothie in the morning.  The author’s smoothie wasn’t my favorite but it did open my mind to the concept of starting the day with a drink full of fiber and health.

The answer to “how do I make a green smoothie for breakfast?” came via Pinterest and the infographic below (the original Pinterest source is from this extremely helpful blog post).
