My friend, colleague and founder of Kale And Chocolate, Elise Museles, recently released a delicious and nourishing book of recipes called Get Up And Green, in which she condenses her years leading a workshop by the same name into 20 new green recipes. I and Elise know the huge importance of having a hefty helping of greens in your daily diet. When you make leafy green vegtables a staple in your eating repertoire, you experience sky high energy, healthy weight loss, and glowing skin.
Greens are so truly nourishing for the body and I am elated that Elise has allowed me to share her recipes with you, my readers! For the next six months, I am going to share a recipe with you from Elise’s new book . I want you, my readers, to indulge in these deeply nourishing, green recipe greats! I will be posting these recipes at the start of each month, so stay tuned!
Blend, sip and enjoy!
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and savor each sip!

After being diagnosed with cancer when she was 32, Elissa Goodman explored holistic alternatives and combined them with traditional treatments and was able to beat the disease. Her husband wasn’t as fortunate; he succumbed to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma when he was only 45 after a regimen of doctor-prescribed chemotherapy and two bone marrow transplants. Her personal experience led her to realize the many ways in which nutrition and lifestyle affect our ability to deal with health challenges.
