I know, it sounds gross. But those aren’t the type of leftovers I’m talking about.
I am talking about using those leftover bits of raw fruits and vegetables. You know, that half of a banana your little one didn’t eat at lunch, or the three pea pods he neglected. The chopped vegetables, such as carrots, cauliflower, celery, and broccoli, from the get-together you had the other day.
It’s also okay to use that hard-boiled egg no one wanted at breakfast, and the last of the fresh parsley or thyme.
Go head. Use stuff up. Doing so will save money on your grocery bill, and add necessary nutrients to a smoothie that your body will love you for. And you wont even notice the taste of those foods, unless they are being used as the main ingredient.
You’ll notice that I implement this tactic often in the smoothies I make.
