Greens, Greens, Greens!!!
Salads and smoothies are always a great way to get greens in the diet but other great ways to squeeze greens in the diet can be fun and creative!
Greens offer a wide variety of nutrient dense vitamins and minerals like Vitamin A, C, K, Calcium, iron and fiber! Anti inflammatory, detoxifying, can cancer fighting, and heart healthy!
Dip it!

-Kale Guacamole Dip
– not your typical Guacamole dip!
– Full of healthy fat, fiber, vit. E from the avo, but also rich in Vitamin K, C, A, calcium from the kale!!

Kale Guacamole
2 cups kale
3 Avocados
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4 minced red onion
2 tbsp salsa
1 tsp fresh cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste!
In a food processor, finely chop the kale and red onion. Cut avocados in half, remove the center seed and scoop out the avocado into a bowl. Smash the avocado until more of a creamy, guacamole tester. Add the chopped kale, onion and remaining ingredients. Stir until all is well blended. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips and voila! Enjoy!

Wrap it!
– Collard Green wrap
– Replacing flour or corn tortillas with a Collard green wrap is an easy way to work them into the diet,
– Love to use the deep colored green because that is a signal of rich nutrients!
– Collard greens rich in Chlorophyll which helps build healthy blood, magnesium, Vit. C, A, E, and B vitamins

Freeze it!

-The Spinach used in this recipe gives this popsicle and really healthy twist to a normal store bought popsicle!
– Spinach is a Skin boosting power food full of beta carotene which converts to vit A which promotes youthful skin.

– Spinach carries a non-heme form of iron which needs Vitamin C but the good news is that it has both naturally so this pop is important for good blood and oxygen health!
