Category: Recipes    

I have to admit when I wrote this title I didn’t even realize just how funny it was, but then when I re-read it I had to leave it. How many times have you tried to add greens powder to your protein shake and all it did was taste like grass, literally. I never really got the hang of using greens powder with a protein shake. I always used to add it to my green juices, which I make with an apple, cucumber, spinach, water, 1 lemon squeezed and a scoop of From the Earth Greens powder Read more

Getting out of the house on time while still making a decently healthy and nutritious breakfast is always a challenge. I am always going a mile a minute in the morning so I have to be able to make something quick that I can also eat on the go if I need to.
