Monday is my absolute favorite day of the week. I could write a whole post as to why happy Mondays are the hidden secret to ultimate happiness and success, but I’ll save that for later. I know that’s not the easiest pill to swallow after an amazing weekend, which I hope all of you had. However, my number one favorite thing about Mondays is that hardly ANYONE else seems to like them. It makes me sad when I see people walking around with those “I hate Mondays” shirts because it’s basically like you’re setting yourself up for a crappy week that just began. Carpe diem people! Seize the day before it’s gone!
… Ok, I’m finished with my mini rant. Anyways, what better way to ring in this new week than with a freshly blended smoothie filled with super foods and seeds? Kale, as most already know (I say this because there’s a huge kale bandwagon frenzy currently sweeping the nation), is a powerhouse of an ingredient and does wonders for your digestive system, brain, energy levels, bones, skin and the list goes on. To read more about the amazing benefits of kale, check out this article. Kale is not only good for you but is also one of the most versatile superfoods out there. Use it to make salads, chips, stir-fries, soups, as a condiment and, of course, in smoothies! A word of caution- I promise kale smoothies won’t taste like a veggie garden only if you pair the right ingredients together.
