How many of you fight to get your children to eat more fruits and veggies? I offer my kids veggies and fruits at least three times a day. They might eat it one day and the next they might not touch anything. It truly is aggravating to see your children not eating healthy foods.
Let me let you in on a little secret. Ever since I changed the way I ate, my children have been more interested in the healthy foods I eat. I made a vegan sandwich one day and I was going on and on about how delicious it was. (let me know if your interested in this sandwich)They were coming around wanted to see it. I didn’t ask them if they wanted any, instead I just was saying how wonderful it was. Then here comes the best part, they asked if they could have a bite. Of course!! They took one bite then another, then they ate their whole sandwich their self.
This morning I woke up thinking to myself man I should try a green juice to drink in the morning. I really don’t eat enough veggies as I should. So I pull out my ninja blender (which I love) and got to work.
I used my single serving cup.
2-3 ice cubes
A quarter of an avocado
1-2 inches of a cucumber
A quarter cup of green grapes
1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. Of chia seed
fill the rest with spinach
I blend down a little and add more spinach to the top.
Blend again until smooth add a straw and start drinking.
I am not a cucumber person but I love it in this drink. It tastes really refreshing. Of course, I started drinking it in front of the boys and they were interested and wanted to try it. *NOTE: If you don’t ask them to try something they will WANT to try it. They feel like they came up with the idea.
Minutes later I was making their own cups of this green juice. They liked it more because it was green and since it is almost St. Patrick’s day, they thought it was the leprechaun that made the juice green. hehe Hey, whatever works.
You will like this drink and I hope you give it a try. I honestly feel like I could drink this every day. I feel like spinach gives me so much energy. Let me know if you have a green juice you drink in the morning. Have a healthy day. Please share and save this post. Love ya, Mary xoxo
