A Winning Green Smoothie Recipe Just in Time for St. Patty’s Day
Post by Olivia Martino, Registered Dietitian and Co-Owner, Nourish Northwest
This year we are teaming up again with Lifewise Health Plan of Oregon to provide a delicious, healthy treat at the Shamrock Fitness Fair. We will be at the Lifewise booth at the Convention Center on Friday, March 14th from 4-8 pm and Saturday, March 15th from 9 am-3 pm. The fair is not only a chance for Shamrock runners to pick up their packets, but is also open to the public and is a great opportunity to visit dozens of fitness and health related vendor booths.
For the past couple of weeks, Lifewise has been running a Facebook campaign asking people to vote for their favorite of 4 of our green smoothie recipes. The winner was just announced and we are excited to share the recipe for the Mango Mint Monster with you! Try it for yourself at home, or come say hi to us at the convention center this weekend!
