You can cultivate fresh greens from the comfort of your own home thanks to indoor gardening. This means geographic location and seasonality won't affect your growth! Vertical gardens have been the go-to strategy for maximizing space and output in indoor spaces. Growing your own greens indoors will ensure a steady supply of fresh, pesticide-free produce.The Green Glow Smoothie Recipe
The Green Glow Smoothie is a delicious and nutritious way to incorporate homegrown greens into your daily diet. Here's what you'll need:Ingredients:
- 1 cup of fresh kale (harvested from your Just Vertical garden)
- 1/2 cup of spinach or watercress (harvested from your Just Vertical garden)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup (optional for sweetness)
- Ice cubes (optional)
- Wash your homegrown kale and spinach/watercress thoroughly.
- Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
- Blend until smooth and creamy.
- Nutrient-Rich: The kale and spinach from your indoor garden are full of vitamins (A, C, K), minerals (iron, calcium, magnesium), and antioxidants. These nutrients support your immune system, bone health, and overall well-being.
- Fibre Boost: The avocado and greens provide a healthy dose of fibre, promoting digestive health and helping you feel full for longer.
- Healthy Fats: Avocado adds heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, while almond milk offers a dairy-free alternative with its own set of health benefits (including calcium and potassium).
- Natural Sweetness: The natural sugars in the banana provide a touch of sweetness without the need for refined sugars and vitamins (potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, magnesium, copper and manganese).
By cultivating your own greens, you not only reduce your carbon footprint but also gain access to an uninterrupted supply of fresh, nutrient-rich ingredients. It's a step toward self-sufficiency in the realm of health and wellness.
