Many of my clients have added Green Drinks to their day. They are amazed at how that one small addition has affected their life. I have heard comments such as “I no longer crave ice cream at the end of the day!”
“My green drink has replaced my coffee in the morning and I don’t even want coffee anymore!”
“I have so much energy now, I can’t believe it!”
One recommendation that I have heard lately for fruits and vegetables is 9-12 servings per day. That doesn’t seem as monumental if you put a few servings in a blender. So, what’s the recipe you may ask?
My recipe is called ‘empty the refrigerator’ green drink. I see what I have in the refrigerator and start adding. To be more specific:
Start with 2-3 cups of water
add fruit that you like (if you have a powerful blender they can be frozen)
then add some veggies.
if you want your drink to be your whole breakfast and satisfy you for longer add some protein like nuts and seeds.
Today my green drink is:
2-3 cups of water
1 apple - cored
1 kiwi - peeled
2 leaves of rainbow chard
2 leaves of collard greens
3 small carrots
2 stalks of celery
Handful of parsley
If you are nervous about all these veggies start with more fruits like bananas, oranges or whatever is on sale or in season and slowly add more veggies as you get used to it. My goal is more veggies less fruit.
