Green smoothieLike most of us, you probably over-indulged a little bit this past Labor Day Weekend. After all, it was a holiday right? You probably had hamburgers and hot dogs and perhaps some pasta salad or slaw. But not getting the nutrients provided by green foods even for a short duration like a holiday can be detrimental. This holds especially true if you partook in drinking alcohol.

This combination can create a lot of toxins for our body to filter out and consequently our immune system is weakened. The nutrients found in green foods are part of what supports your immune system. Along with Vitamin C from fruits, the vitamins and minerals found in kale, broccoli, lettuce, celery and other greens are essential for a healthy immune system and overall optimal living.

There is a shortcut, however. The green smoothie helps replace and replenish all those vitamins and minerals that you missed. You don’t have to wolf down a big green salad or make kale chips every day.

You can go to our menu and check out the section under Smoothies labeled Green Smoothies & Power Smoothies. Here you will find the smoothies you need to stay healthy. “The Green Room” is a healthy and popular green smoothie that features Pineapple, Banana, Mango, Spinach and Kale.
