Here is what I started my day with today: Pineapple Ginger Green Smoothie – yum! The pineapple in this smoothie loaded my body with vitamins C and B1, as well as tons of manganese (manganese is an important cofactor for energy production). And! The vitamin C in it helped my body assimilate the iron in the kale. That’s important. Gosh… then, there’s all the awesome nutrition in ginger and kale. Wait! Then there is the dulse that adds even more potent nutrition (things like zinc, iodine, calcium, potassium, and more). Wowee – this is one spectacular smoothie.
