This week it’s all about greens!

We all know how important it is to eat your greens but do you know why?

Leafy greens are essential sources of vitamins and minerals and that all important chlorophyl which helps to detoxify the body from harmful toxins and give you that all round glow. They are full of fibre and shockingly 70% of the British population don’t eat their reccomended portion of veggies a day.

Which is why we LOVE this super simple, delicious and easy to make green smoothie from Teffy Perk of Sprinkle of Green. Making a smoothie is the easiest way to ensure you are eating your leafy greens, whether they be powdered, juiced or fresh. Try whipping this smoothie after class or for a mid-morning ‘pick-me-up.’
