Get Your Green On!! Eat some green everyday….whether it’s a salad, a smoothie or cooked greens on the side….your body needs the green!! Why?

Here’s the deal…..more greens make your blood naturally less clumpy and makes it FLOW better. Meaning it LOWERS blood pressure naturally! Better blood flow means more oxygen to your cells! More oxygen means MORE ENERGY, MORE MENTAL CLARITY and LESS DEPRESSION!! Also the greens have a ton of FIBER to keep things moving in the bathroom. Lastly, greens have a lot of protein! Who knew! (If you are already on a blood thinner such as Coumadin, talk to me, because greens will effect this.)
