Well, Hello there!

I’ve been off the radar lately doing all things Spring, like a “Lisa Kondo” version of getting my home cleaned and cleared of clutter and now it’s extending into my morning routine which I think is a natural extension of clearing the home as I see it, but more on that later.

So if you know me you know that for the best Clean & Lean nourishment and blood sugar balancing, I’m a huge advocate for a high protein, low glycemic smoothie that really is a perfectly balanced meal.  Those are fabulous!  But in between and in the early Spring I start craving a smart aleck green smoothie that sort of “wakes me up” from the winter.  I want something, light, alkaline and perky. Here’s the one I’m loving now:

Spring in Your Step Green Smoothie:

  • 4-5 lacinto kale leaves (destemmed)
  • Juice from 1/4 to 1/2 lemon (I like 1/2 but I’m a lemon FAN)
  • 1/2 banana
  • handful of cilantro
  • handful of parsley
  • 1/2-1 cup water
  • 3-4 ice cubes (I don’t like smoothies too cold and they digest better when they are not very cold)

Blend it up and drink it slowly!  I think of this as a first thing in the morning kind of a “starter” drink, not a meal replacement.  For that I recommend a high protein Clean & Lean smoothie, which you can find here.
