5 Minute Healthy Green Recipes // Get Fit With Me #2

For the second video to my “Get Fit With Me” series, I decided to make 3 different easy recipes that are GREEN. Because green = healthy, right? Maybe not necessarily all the time but in this case, these are healthy recipes.

These are a great way to eat some healthy greens without really feeling like you’re eating greens, if that makes sense. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy a nice green salad, but it’s always more fun to eat something green that ISN’T a salad.
