Amiright? Those two statements, while ideal, sometimes feel like the farthest from the truth. Sure we give it our all some weeks, but as life picks up, we juggle a gazillion tasks, errands and then some - healthy eating on the go because a ginormous j.o.k.e.
Here is the deal, Prescribe Nutrition is built on eating whole foods, particularly with a combination of the magic trio: fat, fiber and protein. Making sure each meal and snack has a combination of fat, fiber and protein is going to help you feel satiated and keep your blood sugar levels stable. One of our favorite and easiest ways to achieve this? A smoothie. Not to mention that we're always be delighted by the chance to start the day with greens. Always.
But smoothies have their challenges on the go - spilling, smoothie ‘staches, your mason jar NOT fitting in your cup holder or feeling safe in your purse, being tough to clean out, etc. We know you're feeling us on this one! Enter the Not So Little Green Pouch which has 14 oz. of space for your enjoying. And being dishwasher safe and free of toxic materials was a must (thank you!). Plus, this new pouch is cupholder-friendly, making it truly perfect for on-the-go.
Our favorite smoothie combinations usually incorporate:- Water or nondairy milk

Eating local, and what's in season is better for your health and the environment. Food at its peak is going to pack the most nutritional punch. Choose options from local farmers, and you will reap even more nutritional value while also helping minimize the impact on the environment it takes to transport crops.
But when you have access to every fruit and vegetable year-round, how do you know what's in season? Don't worry—we've got you covered.
It's March, and that means we've got spring on our mind. Luckily, spring produce is starting to come into season, so we thought we'd round up some of our favorite recipes that include these in-season favorites.
