Spinach Smoothie

This is my go to green smoothie. It has 10g of fiber and 15g of protein, all from real plant based ingredients.

Daily Fiber Needs + Benefits

Women should aim for at least 25g and men 38g a day. If you are eating real foods then I’m sure you effortlessly pass this minimum daily need. For more info about fiber check this post out.
