Small changes and green smoothies with Jen Hansard
Sometimes I’ll have a conversation with a guest that leaves me feeling like I’ve spent an hour chatting with a friend, and today’s episode with Jen Hansard – half of the dynamic Simple Green Smoothies duo – is one of them.
Jen and I talk about Simple Green Smoothies and their brand new book (out this week!) but we also talk about the health crises that started it all.
Like a lot of us, Jen was addicted to coffee and getting by on a diet high in processed food. Her energy was flagging and she found herself and family constantly sick. It wasn’t until she was forced to make huge changes to her family’s diet that she really recognised the impact food was having on her health and well being. The Simple Green Smoothies movement grew from there and now the girls are rockstars of wellness.
We also talk about balance and being realistic in the changes we make, why there’s always room for Pizza Fridays, the importance of community and Jen’s favourite smoothie recipe. I also share my non-recipe for a go-to breakfast smoothie that looks disgusting but tastes amazing. (And now I’m hungry.)
