I made this smoothie because I was looking for an earthly green taste that wasn't too overwhelming. I always default to kale for greens in my daily green smoothie, mainly because it's very cooling and so good for you. However, every now and then, I like to subtitute Chard for Kale. Chard is high in vitamin K, which has been linked to bone health. The romaine and citrus from the lemon tone down the chard a bit so you can still indulge in your greens without that strong taste.

Who am I and do why write this blog? Each time I ask myself that question, I find that I have so much more to learn and discover. "Who am I" is an ongoing process, and just when we think we've figured it out, life has its way of throwing us a ton of curve balls-but that's why its called a journey.
