The procedure of blending/juicing vegetables and fruits is so simple, and it's an easy way to incorporate more nutrients into your diet. The health and natural energy benefits are amazing as well, so it would be foolish for me to not provide you with my recipe for my Green Protein Smoothie.

If you are not a fan of vegetables and fruits, that doesn't mean you should abolish them completely - this is the foundation for malnutrition in my opinion. Try this recipe instead, and chug it down if you're against a colorful diet (no need to be ridiculous).
You will need:
- 1 cup of water
- 2 handfuls of kale
- 1 large banana
- 1 handful of baby spinach
- 1 medium apple (I use a Granny Smith)
- 1/2 cup of blueberries
- 1 scoop (20g) of vanilla protein powder (I use whey)
Add the water, kale and spinach to your blender and mix. Then add the apple (core removed, cut into roughly 1 inch pieces) and continue to mix. When smooth, add the banana and blueberries. Allow it to mix well, and then finally add the scoop of protein powder. Make sure everything is mixed completely, because nobody wants to chew their smoothie... Once you are sure it is at the proper consistency, pour and ENJOY! Or, chug it down if you're going to be a baby about it...
You'll get about 2 servings out of it, or one gigantic, nutrient-loaded smoothie. Had it this morning and feeling like a million bucks!
