wellness wednesday

Yay! It's Wednesday and we are halfway to the weekend, which I am looking forward to because my big sis turns 30 AND has just moved into her new home so it's going to be a good party weekend. Err..and I am thinking I may fall a bit off the "healthy train" because of it! Anyways...

One of my goals this month was to eat more veggies! Lots of greens was my goal and in order to incorporate into my daily routine for lunch I have be drinking GREEN SMOOTHIES - green green goodness and I can atest - they are delicious! So today I am going to share a could recipies that I found with you.

I got these recipies here, where there are recipies for 25 of these goodness-packed smoothies! 

Here are a few of my fave's (which I've either made or are on the list!)
