How to eat half a pound of greens daily in just one Month
If you want to add greens to your diet in my opinion the easier way is through smoothies. I would suggest starting with 1 cup of greens in your smoothies to begin. Below you can see how you can have half a pound of greens a day in just one month.
- Week 1- Everyday for the first week add 1 cup of greens in your smoothies
- Week 2- Everyday for week two add 2 cups of greens in your smoothies
- week 3- Everyday for week three add 3 cups of greens in your smoothie
- week 4- Everyday for week four add 4 cups of greens in your smoothies.
After one month you will begin week 5 ready to have half a pound of greens daily. Starting slow and working your way up is the best way for your taste buds to adjust and acquire a better taste for all those greens.
If you are extremely busy and don’t have time to make your own smoothies I would highly recommend having Green Me make your smoothies for you. When I’m home they make my smoothies for Shea and I and it saves us a bunch of time and energy. Check out their website here to order your smoothies. They are located in Orem.
