Simple Green Smoothies and a Cookbook #Giveaway

Print This Post Print This Post Simple idea: drink 1 green smoothie a day to transform your health. Sound good? I'm trying it, from the new cookbook

If you could transform your health with one simple habit, would you do it?

Oh kale yeah!

Adding more vegetables and fruits to your diet is one of the best things you can do for yourself, and one of the easiest ways to do it is by adding a green smoothie to your day.

Skin Cleaning Tropical Green SmoothieSounds simple, right? You don’t have to count calories or eliminate entire groups of food (well, maybe ditching junk candy would be a good idea). Instead, simply drink a green smoothie a day. It is packed with dark leafy greens, some fruit to sweeten it up a bit, and a plethora of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and things your body craves.

That’s the premise behind the new cookbook “Simple Green Smoothies: 100+ tasty recipes to lose weight, gain energy and feel great in your body,” by Jen Hansard and Jadah Sellner (Rodale, $24.99).

Cilantro-LimeadeIt includes a 10-day kick start to get you acclimated, and a handy shopping list, along with advice about how to ease into the green smoothie regime.

Over the years, I’ve made some darn good green smoothies here and there, including

…but never every day.

Today, as a new season dawns, I am welcoming Spring by pledging to add a green smoothie to my morning. I’d like to be more plant-based, drop a few pounds, and feel more energetic. #Goals, right?

This sounds like a great cookbook! I don’t make enough smoothies!


Amanda March 22, 2016 at 4:48 am

This looks like a great book. I haven’t been making green smoothies enough recently. Sounds like exactly the inspiration I need to get back on track!


Dorothy Reinhold March 22, 2016 at 5:04 am

Exactly the way I felt Amanda.

I need this book – I need more green smoothies in my life. I know they are good for you, I just need to make them!

I’m taking notes. I need to find a way to get more green smoothies in my diet that are simple. These look great.


Tania @ COOKTORIA March 21, 2016 at 9:24 am

YUMMY! I am on a diet, trying to lose the last 5 lbs of my winter weight, so these smoothies are just what I was looking for! Especially the Tropical Green Smoothie. I am having it after workout today!!!


Dorothy Reinhold March 21, 2016 at 9:54 am

That one is my fave!


sue|theviewfromgreatisland March 21, 2016 at 9:09 am

I need to make that pledge too, a green smoothie every morning would be wonderful!


Oriana @Mommyhood's Diary March 21, 2016 at 8:42 am

My favorite flavor for smoothies is mango!!


Tracy | Baking Mischief March 21, 2016 at 8:27 am

I drink green smoothies all the time for exactly those reasons, but it’s always exactly the same recipe, which can get boring. This book would be perfect to mix things up, and those recipes look fantastic. I love the sound of the Tropical Green Smoothie!


Stephanie March 21, 2016 at 7:57 am

We love smoothies with berries and pineapple!


Vaishali March 21, 2016 at 7:36 am

I like tropical, papaya


Liz March 21, 2016 at 7:09 am

I like lots of parsley in a smoothie.


Steph March 20, 2016 at 5:03 pm

Ham and matzah!!


Dorothy Reinhold March 20, 2016 at 6:00 pm

Thanks for the entry Steph! (I had the wrong question posted when you answered, so I want readers to know that Steph was answering my prior question: “What would be on your Easter dinner table?” I’m sure she isn’t putting this in her smoothie!)
