Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Recipes for Smoothies, Juices, Nut Milks, and Tonics

Green Smoothies
This book came in the mail last week, and it has been intriguing our visitors ever since.  My 14-year old son flipped through it and asked if he could make one of the recipes.  Another 14-year old boy saw it on another day, and asked if he could borrow the book.  And a friend who is super into healthy living was analyzing some of the recipes beside me on Sunday.

The full title is: Green Smoothies: Recipes for Smoothies, Juices, Nut Milks, and Tonics to Detox, Lose Weight, and Promote Whole-Body Health.  There are 66 recipes, each with the following components:
a one-word description, such as savory, slightly sweet or sweet
pictures and words to describe the ingredients
health perks:  both a sentence and icons to describe key benefits
a picture of the finished product.

It's beautiful and inviting.  The recipes are mostly made of simple ingredients that you can find at a large grocery store or healthy foods store.I look forward to working my way through the book, trying some of the author's recipes.  I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to ease their way into a healthier lifestyle by juicing and blending healthy drinks.

I'm glad that the publisher sent me this book to review in exchange for my honest review!
