This time of year, we all need to get a little more green in our diet every day. During the holidays we tend to eat more acid-forming foods than we should, and we need to neutralize those excess acids by eating more alkaline-rich foods. This means eating our veggies! Vegetables and fruits are the most alkalizing of foods, and this Super Alkaline Green Smoothie is packed with alkalizing goodness. What a tasty way to stay alkaline the whole year long!
