But then I read the story of the founder, Scott Kanyok and […]

If you’ve been following me for a while, you will know that Green GREEN Smoothies are most definitely my favourite – I feel so much better when I reduce the fruit (i.e. include no more than 1-2 apples/pears and 1-2 limes/lemons) and combine with TONS of greens (i.e. any combination of celery, cucumber, broccoli stalks, […]
