Why Green Smoothies?
Nutrition in, garbage out. I do this several times per week and my energy has completely turned around.
I start with:
apple (cored), carrot, celery + tops
or peaches or whatever is in season
or I get blueberries or strawberries and freeze them myself.
kale, spinach or romaine
The more organic, the better.
Add about 2 cups of water. Blend in blender for about a minute.
Or you can do:
dates, or other dried fruit, or stevia for sweetness
peeled de-seeded cucumber
avocado or banana for thickness
I put a spoon of organic turmeric for medicinal purposes
garlic, and/or hunk of peeled ginger
protein powder (good ones at Trader Joe’s)
Anything goes – and I have TONS of energy!!!
