Are you just exhausted? There was a time in my life when I had to take naps in my car on my lunch break because I felt like I couldn't keep my eyes open, the fatigue was just overwhelming. I have been able to reverse my own symptoms, but I come into contact every day with people who report at least one of the these symptoms:
4. Digestive Distress
5. Mood Changes
6. Stubborn Weight Gain

I absolutely love green smoothies and have one for breakfast every day. It's a simple way to add in nutrients you may not routinely consume plus it can taste like dessert without much effort!
I often hear that my green smoothie recipes have too many ingredients. But to me, multiple ingredients mean endless combinations and endless nutritional benefits. I'll share my favorite green smoothie ingredients to keep on hand and how they can improve overall health and quality of life. All these ingredients can be stored for quite some time and your cost per smoothie is really reasonable. Plus, the nutrition you're receiving is amazing.
