Starting the day with Green Smoothies | FairfieldMoms

The weather is supposed to be so crummy all week so you just want warm comfort food but still healthy just in case you eat it all! These recipes I took from Paleo Running Momma who is a great resource for delicious recipes to feed the soul especially when working out, juggling motherhood and trying to do it all!

Green Smoothies I always say are a staple in this house, so much so that my 2 year old drinks them and has been since she was able to hold them up. I think she actually likes her “moothies”. They are some days our breakfast and some days a snack to hold us over till we get to breakfast. I changed it up a bit for a few ingredients I am trying to add to my diet and still taste good! I always use all organic ingredients and just eye it, I don’t measure out ingredients just throw things in a blender. Honestly anything you can throw in a blender makes the morning so much smoother and adding the greens is a good way to hide the healthy stuff if your kids don’t eat them normally!
