Not only are vegetables complete sources of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, most green vegetables contain good amounts of protein. In fact, spinach is 44 percent protein, the highest of all green leafy vegetables. In the United States, the percentage of dark green leafy vegetables consumption is still lower than recommended.

Green smoothies provide an easy way to consume a large amount of dark leafy greens in one serving. Along with benefits for healthy hair, skin, and nails, and weight loss promotion, green vegetables provide an abundant nutrient supply best utilized when the cell walls of dark leafy greens are ruptured. Chewing green vegetables into a creamy consistency isn’t possible, but using a high-powered blender to make a smoothie with these greens will rupture the cell walls and increase the nutrient absorption in our body.

Green juice, like green smoothies, also gets a lot of buzz. And unlike more pedestrian juices as apple, orange, or grape, "Green Juice" can deliver different intermingling flavors like salty and sweet, spicy and sour, or tart and warm. Smoothies don’t lend themselves to tart or spicy taste as with green juices where each ingredient produces a unique flavor property.

So add those vegetables to your diet everyday with green smoothies and juices. When going green—meaning more vegetables, use the smoothie and juice recipes in this book, each with green in them to perk up your need for green.
