Hey smoothie lovers! How do you feel about savory smoothies and smoothie bowls? I love them!

When I’m in the mood for something refreshing and healthy, like a salad, but I want something a little different, I make a smoothie bowl. This gorgeous green one comes from my book, Smoothies & Juices: Prevention Healing Kitchen. It has inflammation-fighting power from the greens and turmeric, and boasts 9g of filling fiber. Try blending it up for lunch!
