Have you heard? It's important to rotate the variety of greens that you consume on a regular basis!
Wait, what? Why?
1. Greens are very different! They all have unique compositions and a variety of nutritious vitamins & minerals! Rotate your greens to get as many of these incredible nutrients as possible!
2. To avoid intake of certain toxins. Consuming high amounts of only one type of green, especially when it is spinach, can cause you to experience symptoms of toxicity.
3. To increase the diversity of COLOR in your diet! We all know that it is essential to "eat the rainbow" to feel good & healthy, so use the abundance of greens available (especially during fall!) to get as much GREEN in as possible.
TIP: Mix up your greens easily and cost-effectively!
Buy one type of green each week for all of your recipes, and change the variety each week!
PLUS, here at White Birch Juice, we have plenty of options to switch up your greens! Obsessed with the Green Gold (kale, cucumber, apple, celery, mint, & lime)? Switch it up every once in a while and grab a Garden Goodness (spinach, pea shoots, celery, cucumber, cilantro, apple, & lime)! Yum!

Chilly autumn is perfect to start preparing delicious, warming breakfast to kick off your day! This time of year gets super busy and hectic, so taking a small amount of quiet time in the morning to lovingly make a delicious breakfast that is FULL of nutrition is a wonderful way to relax.
Here's one of our favorite breakfasts for fall:
Oatmeal, cooked on the stovetop (we added some flax seeds!) with either our cashew or almond milk--it's simply yummy & made with love
Top with dried fruit (we love cranberries) and nuts (these are almonds, pumpkins, pecans, and pistachios!)
We also think coconut shavings, fresh berries, or even a few chocolate chips would be yummy! :)
Add a sprinkle of cinnamon, cardamom, or any favorite warming spice. We love this breakfast with a warm cup of chai tea (we added some of our homemade almond milk to that too!!).
Grab a White Birch Juice the day before, to round out your breakfast with some fresh, cold-pressed (and tasty!) nutrients!

We added a bit of fresh mint from our herb garden and some salt & pepper to taste!
