I have always been a huge fan of smoothies and am constantly looking for new ways to get my nutrients drinkable. So, when I stumbled across an article, here, about the myths about multivitamins and how we can receive all the nutrients and vitamins me we need through healthy food choices… I started wondering what I could toss into my blender to help my diet be a little more natural and clean. So, off to Amazon.com I went and started looking at smoothie recipe books and reading review after review of them.
