Green Smoothies vs. Green Juice
Both healthy green smoothie recipes and green juice recipes are good for you (well, except for if you go on a long juice fast&hellip), but is one preferable to the other?
Juicing tends to strip away fiber, which means that healthy green smoothies may keep you fuller longer, says Michelle Truong-Leikauf, R.D., author of food blog Mitch in the Kitchen. Smoothies also pack maximum nutrition thanks to fibrous plant skins and pulp that contain micronutrients like carotenoids and flavonoids, which help reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.
If you're a picky eater, juices may be better at diversifying and disguising plants you might not otherwise eat. "Think wheatgrass, beets, jicama, kale, cucumbers," says Kristina LaRue, R.D., L.D.N., author of food blog Love and Zest. "You may not like the taste or texture of certain fruits and vegetables, but the good news is they taste different when juiced." Plus, people with sensitive stomachs caused by conditions such as IBS or a flare-up of colitis may handle juices better than smoothies as well because they are easier to digest thanks to the lack of fiber however, Truong-Leikauf cautions against juices that are heavy on fruit due to their sugar concentration. Even these naturally occurring sugars can cause issues for those with sensitive stomachs. (Related: The Best Juice for What&rsquos Bugging You)

Warhammer II Grom’s Cauldron Recipes
Before we jump into the recipes there are some things you should know. For example, there is a Food Merchant at Grom’s Cauldron who can teach you new recipes. However, new recipes can also be discovered by mixing different ingredients. You must combine two main ingredients to create unique recipes.
When cooking you need to keep something in mind. Each individual buff from your ingredient will be taken into account. Grom’s Cauldron recipes give Grom certain buffs and these buffs can last up to 15 turns or until you cook a new recipe. If you switch to a new recipe it’ll cost you 50 scrap, and you only cook once per turn.
There are 15 unique recipes in Total War: Warhammer II The Warden & The Paunch DLC. There are 5 types of ingredients you can use for your Grom’s Cauldron recipes. Each ingredient type is colored coded – Orange, Red, Blue, Yellow, and Green.

Tips for Perfect Shamrock Veggie Skewers
Get creative with lots of different green veggies! Try green peppers, broccoli florets, zucchini, cucumbers, snow peas or sugar snap peas – whatever looks great at the store.
To make those cute shamrock shapes for the top of each skewer, green peppers work best. There are two ways to make these:
- You can use a small, sharp, shamrock-shaped cookie cutter. (Our smaller one is about 1 3/4″, and we found that size to be perfect, but the larger, 2 1/2″ size worked well, too.) Choose a few large green peppers with nice, broad sides. Slice off the sides and use the cookie cutter to cut out shamrocks, as we did on the left in the photo above.
- You can also buy smaller green peppers, and simply use a knife to slice them crosswise (horizontally) into thin “rings,” as we did on the right in the photo above. Green pepper slices actually look amazingly like shamrocks! When you thread these on the top of each skewer, you can even add a tiny piece of pepper underneath, to look like a stem. (My mom says she noticed this idea on Pinterest, when she saw a picture of how Gina at SkinnyTaste used pepper shamrocks to decorate the top of her Bell Pepper and Potato Frittata .) Easy and really cool – no special cookie cutter needed!
For serving, I definitely recommend a festively green dip. I mean, especially if you’re serving a leprechaun, you have to go with green! Our favorites are our Edamame Hummus and our 5-Minute Avocado Ranch Dip.
Now you’re all ready for whatever St. Patrick’s Day brings – whether it’s a trap filled with leprechauns or just an attack of the munchies! Because these healthy skewers aren’t just good fuel for mythical green dudes – they can keep you going strong all day, too. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
