Getting Started

Cocoa_Pear_SmoothieIf you want to start incorporating clean eating smoothies into your diet or if you’re looking for some new recipes, I suggest making sure you have at least a couple of the below ingredients from each list stocked in your home.

Since I’m all about balance, I strive for progress not perfection. I also have to be realistic about time and understand that it’s ok to buy organic almond milk instead of making it myself.
