I wake up every morning and go straight to my nutrininja.  The way I look at it, if you fuel your body with tons of great nutrients right off the bat, your body in turn will reward itself by giving you sustainable energy for the day.  Over the next four weeks, I will be sharing my favorite smoothie recipes with you.  Feel free to share your faves on my Facebook page, Stacey’s Official Shred Challenge.  And don’t forget to add your favorite protein powder!

Green smoothies are a great way to sneak in servings of healthy greens in a tasty smoothie package. The avocado adds creamy texture as well as healthy fats, while the spinach is all about that iron. The coconunt water adds electrolytes to help replenish your body to keep it going strong in your group fitness classes! Too thick? Add more liquid.
