Deconstructed Green Smoothie Bowl

Green Smoothie Bowl

Green smoothies. They’re all the rage. And rightfully so – they’re packed with healthy fruits and vegetables, you can customize them to your preference, add ‘super foods’ and proteins, use them to recover from workouts, and in one tasty glass you can get most of your daily intake of vegetables that you need for a healthy diet.

If I’m being honest, and those that know me know that I’m usually honest to a fault and wear my emotions very clearly on my face, I don’t drink nearly enough green smoothies. Or smoothies in general.

I do eat a lot of vegetables daily, but I’m terrible about fruit. I have a salty tooth that far and away is stronger than my sweets cravings.

For me, green smoothies are a great way to get more fruit in my diet. While I like bananas, apples and other fruit, I rarely reach for a piece of fruit. But blending it together with nice green vegetables, I’m much for likely to get those needed fruits into my diet.

By breaking down the ingredients one-by-one, like I did with my Deconstructed Veggie Lasagna Bowl, or Deconstructed Spaghetti & Meatballs Bowl, I’m forcing myself  to examine what I’m putting into each ingredient. Calories add up quick, so the thoughtfulness that goes behind each deconstructed bowl has been an incredible journey of learning and understanding ingredients.
