Struggling to get your greens in each day? SAME.
The USDA recommends adults have at least 2 1/2 cups of vegetables and 2 cups of fruits each day. Unfortunately, most adults do not get enough daily.
It’s important to get enough fruits and vegetables daily to give your body all the benefits they provide: fiber, vitamins, minerals, and best of all–energy to fuel your body well!
One of the simplest ways to increase your intake of fruits and vegetables is to blend them up and take them with you in a convenient little container–enter, the smoothie! In a few minutes, you can start your day with a nutritious breakfast; you can also prepare them any time of day as a healthy snack!
