Obesity is at epidemic levels and our national health levels have never been lower. One of the reasons for all this is that we have strayed far from what constitutes a healthy and balanced diet. One answer to this problem can be this Broccoli Carrot smoothie. For even more nutrition you can add a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia provides a great deal of vitamins and minerals including hearth healthy omega-3 fatty acids. And, since Chia doesn’t have any real taste of its own it will virtually disappear into the smoothie and you won’t even know its there.
