The infamous green drink, perhaps you've heard of it?

Whats your opinion on multi vitamins?

Some people think that your body doesn't absorb the nutrients and you just end up wasting it out. Some people believe that you should take certain ones at certain times and they are the all seeing super power. I think it is important to get your daily intake.. but I'm not sure that a pill is the right way.. So my boyfriend has introduced me to this smoothie that he has every morning.. the Almond milk in the picture below is going to be used next week when he experiments with a new recipe.

In the picture are some of his main ingredients, feel free to add or subtract what you like. But if you begin with this recipe as a base it is a good start.
