Happy Memorial Day, readers! I want to address the importance of this day and those who sacrificed their lives to protect our nation. I hope you all take some time today to remember the significance of that.

I know a lot of you are cooking out today, having back yard BBQ’s, or enjoying a picnic in the park which is why I want to share with you all some fun little tips on how to add something healthy to your festivities of choosing. I came up with a few fun ways to easily add in some greens to your diet. Thanks to my friends at Evolution Fresh, they make it super fun and easy to incorporate a healthy lifestyle and a love for yummy greens!

Recipe #1

I love a good salad, especially one that is colorful and flavorful!
Here is a simple way to make a delicious salad

Add:
Spinach
Carrots
Zucchini
Strawberries
Lemon
Optional- to keep it clean avoid adding any dressing. Instead, squeeze some lemon onto your salad and sprinkle on some pepper for added flavor

For a drink try any cold pressed Evolution Fresh juice and add a cucumber for a garnish

Recipe #2

This one is my favorite! Cucumber Strawberry Orange Spritzer. Are your taste buds watering yet?
I began by pouring my Evolution Fresh Orange juice into a cup about half way and then filling the other half with sparkling water. Cut up strawberries and cucumber to give it an even more refreshing taste. Cucumbers are great to add to any drink like water, lemonade, or a spritzer.

Recipe #3

This one was fun and so easy and perfect for kids too! Who doesn’t love a delicious icy pop? If you struggle with fitting greens into your diet this one is for you. Simply pour any green juice into a pop sickle mold and voila! You have a great summer time treat. The Essential Greens and Sweet Greens juices are perfect for this one 🙂1 - IMG_0229 - Social
