Eat your vegetables! Our moms have been telling us that for years, right? But let’s face it, most Americans are not eating near the amount of veggies they should be. Blending up a healthy, delicious smoothie is a great way to pack greens and other nutritious vegetables and fruits into your diet (especially those you may not enjoy eating on a regular basis). Smoothies also a great way to sneak veggies into your kids’ diet – we all know how picky kids can be when it comes to veggies!
Eating a well balanced, plant-based diet is definitely one the most powerful things you can do for your health. Research has shown that people who eat plant-based diets have lower weight, reduced risk of chronic diseases, better nutrient intake, and better management of chronic health conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
By taking simple steps, like consuming more fresh vegetables, you can start to experience those benefits.
Blending up a green smoothie for breakfast every morning is a great way to start you day. Think about it—you’re giving your body a blast of phytonutrients, antioxidants and fiber. I promise, that green smoothie is going to keep you energized and full until lunchtime. It’s the perfect “grab and go” breakfast.
Without a doubt, the healthiest smoothies are the ones that contain greens. I recommend making smoothies that are loaded with leafy greens and only a small amount of fruit. The biggest mistake that people make when making smoothies is using too much fruit. Too much fruit can cause spikes in your blood sugar. A good rule of thumb is no more than one serving of fruit in your smoothie. For example, 1 serving of berries is 1 cup. A serving a pineapple is ½ cup, due to its higher sugar content.
This recipe is one of my favorites. Even my kids love it!

3 cups spinach

Add all ingredients to your Blendtec and select the Whole Juice setting. Enjoy!
May we have Strawberries?
Strawberries and summer have gone together for as long as I can remember. Many an evening when I was younger, was spent lying on the grass and rummaging through my mothers flower garden trying to find any strawberries that had not already been consumed by the neighborhood kids. The distinct shape and color of this delicious berry has spread their roots in the hearts of the world and has become so popular that the entire month of May is Strawberry month! The strawberry is the 2nd most popular fruit behind apples and is also the co-star of some of the most amazing partnerships in food history; strawberry-kiwi, straw-banana, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the original pb&j was made with strawberry jelly.
Strawberries do more than just taste amazing, they are also a great source of nutrition and are always willing to give your body a high five of healthiness. Famous for their vitamin C punch, strawberries also have a few other health winning cards up their sleeves. The dimpled delight is also a source of fiber, manganese, potassium, and folate.
Now that we are all more in love with the strawberry, let’s use them to make something delicious.
Add ingredients to FourSide jar in order listed. Secure lid and press “Batter.” Allow batter to rest for up to 1 hour in refrigerator.
Heat skillet or crêpe pan over medium heat, and lightly coat with oil or cooking spray. For each crêpe, pour ¼ cup batter into center of pan and swirl pan gently to distribute batter in thin layer. Cook for 1 minute or until top begins to dry out and underneath is lightly golden. Flip and cook an additional 30 seconds or until done.
Repeat with remaining batter. Stack completed crêpes on plate, placing wax paper between each crêpe to prevent sticking.
Fill your crêpes with strawberries, whipped cream, nutella, powdered sugar, or whatever else suits your fancy. They’re great for dessert or breakfast.
Add strawberries, yogurt, ⅔ cup milk, orange juice, and 4 tablespoons agave nectar to WildSide jar. Secure lid and select “Batter.” Pour 1 cup soup into each of 6 bowls.
Add ⅓ cup milk, 2 tablespoons agave nectar, lemon juice, and raspberries to jar. Secure lid and select “Batter.” Drizzle ¼ cup raspberry mixture over soup.
