Lose weight with Jessica Alba's delicious green smoothie​


Have you ever checked out The Honest Company's blog? It's the blog of the company that Jessica Alba built. I like to check it out on occasion because Jessica Alba is a constant source of inspiration to me. I've been a fan of hers from way back in the day when she was on the TV show Flipper.
