Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day the Healthier Way

Who doesn’t love a green beer every once and a while or a frozen, sugary treat? But, if you’re trying to lose weight and stick to a whole food diet, this may be the year to skip that tradition. Start off your day with a healthy smoothie instead, like the one featured here on www.thesylishone.com.

Kale has more benefits than we can count at only 33 calories per serving, including some protein and fiber, lots of folate and omega 3s, vitamins and phytonutrients. Kale has been linked to many positive outcomes: a healthy detox, longer life, fighting cancer, brain health, decreased depression, diabetes prevention and improved bone health. So this St. Patrick’s Day, forego the beer and sip on this…

*Note: Always check with your doctor before changing your diet if you have any chronic condition. Even good things should be consumed in moderation *
