If I give my littles a jar of crayons or a glue stick with scraps of paper there is great rejoicing! Crafts and creating are in their DNA. There’s no need to convince them to get designing their latest masterpiece. However, when it comes to getting those good, green leafy veggies in it’s a whole different story.
Enter Nature’s Greens fresh, pre-washed greens! They’re perfect for adding into our tried and true recipes because they’re ready straight from the bag! No need to do all the prep work you typically have to with collards, kale, or turnip greens. Just open up the bag and toss them right in!
This is the perfect time of year to plug in extra greens whenever you can. It’s back to school season and every mama knows that with new routine come new germs. It always seems like a matter of time before we catch our first sick bug. However, I am a firm believer that healthy eating impacts healthy living. So, I’m trying something new- I’m going to plug those greens in with a little creativity and some help from my picky eaters themselves. This week I turned our citrus smoothie into a “Sweet Green Smoothie” with my cute crew and it was a hit! Honestly I was surprised but they loved and asked for more!
Part of the fun was letting them join in the process. Watching all the ingredients swirl around a blender was pretty great too! We used fresh collards from Nature’s Greens together with our favorite fruits. I loved that the collards were pre-washed and ready to go- so convenient for whipping up a nutritious snack rich in vitamins and minerals. If you’re like me and want to get a healthy start to the school year I have the perfect recipe for you! It’s simple, sweet, and irresistible for even the pickiest of eaters!
