Re: Quick, nutritious and low cost

Green smoothies are surprisingly delicious, quick and exceedingly nourishing. I start by slinging a big handful of leaves into the blender and add some of the following: banana, apple, celery, melon, cucumber, peach, nectarine, berries ( frozen ones are actually cheaper than fresh!), or whatever you...
