Green Smoothie With Avocado
This Green Smoothie with Avocado packs tons of health benefits into one delicious drink. Blended fruits and veggies provide an excellent source of nutrition that's easily digestible, and the avocado is a decadent source of healthy unsaturated fats. Plus, the ground flaxseed is a great way to get those omega 3's. During a flare-up, peel the cucumber and apple, and consider limiting the spinach.
