I've always believed that you don't need to eat flavorless, bland, yucky foods to still enjoy healthy, and Gina over at Skinny Taste is living proof of it.

I haven't been feeling very well, I can tell that I'm seriously lacking vegetables and fruit, and clean eating, and mostly water. I've kind of let myself go in that sense, and even though I still enjoy delicious meals, I feel that when I drink just water and up my veggie and fruit intake, my body feels so much healthier.
With that in mind, the past two days I have drank just water flavored with lemon, or orange and grapes. Love it. I've also started having a green smoothie at day, either for breakfast or lunch, so I've gathered all my green smoothie recipes and am going to try a few. The first one on the list was this Mango Banana Green Smoothie from Skinny Taste.
I didn't add the Hemp seeds, not because I didn't want to, but I am having a hard time finding them in my little town, but it's still delicious without them.
Give it a try...and by the way, my children love these smoothies too which is a huge plus for me, it means I'm giving them yummy healthy good stuff, and in this day an age where our lives are surrounded by processed food, it's a good thing.
