Tara’s Favorite Skin & Soul Brightening Smoothie
I am a huge smoothie fan. The idea of making a healthy meal mobile makes my brain happy. If you're wanting to incorporate more of all the fruits and veggies we know we're supposed to be eating, but don't have time to laboriously crunch your way through a salad, this is a life-saver. Perhaps, literally--if all the doctors and nutritionists are right.
I've shared my all-time favorite go-to smoothie here. I will usually indulge in that one a couple times a week. However, I've recently started feathering this one in from time to time and it's amazing if you need a lift and want to pack in a bunch of anti-inflammatory foods into your body as quickly as possible. Original recipe comes from one of my favorite health gurus, Marco Borges. I've tweaked it a bit, but I highly recommend his smoothies. :)
As aforementioned in my previous article: Trust me on this, get a high-quality blender--it makes much better smoothies. I use a Vita-mix, which wasn't cheap but I love it and I see it as an investment. There are many quality blenders, though, that you can get for less.
