Spiced Green Smoothie

We love the holidays don't we? The lights. The excitement. The food. Unfortunately, we live in a society that is pretty consumer driven with lots of preconceived notions about what you "have to have"  in order to experience the "perfect" holiday - Christmas or otherwise.

Well, I'm attempting to slow down. Keep things simple. Experience my children and family, remembering the real reason for the season, and enjoy this beautiful time of year for all it's worth.

I'm also trying to help my body do the same. Stress, refined sugars, and overeating can really put a lot of strain on our bodies. So, even though the weather outside is frightful, this Spiced Green Smoothie will be so delightful! (No? Doesn't work?) This smoothie is full of vitamins, protein, probiotics, fiber, and the spices of the season.

Put everything in your blender and puree until smooth. It may take a few extra pulses to get all the pecan bits. Drink up, breathe deep, and have a beautiful day.

Enjoy!
