Green Smoothies

Went to a lecture on green smoothies. The speaker shared her story. Very inspiring. Her Grandma was cured of cancer by going on a raw food diet. I have been getting e-newsletters from her website for a while and have been having green smoothies every once in a while.

After listening to her speak I am going to try to have green smoothies for breakfast every day. So far I have just added Spinach and recently tried avocado in my smoothies. You can also use celery, swiss chard, kale, etc. She recommends your smoothie contain 1/3 liquid, 1/3 fruit, and 1/3 veggies. I'm going to be trying new things over the next few weeks. I'll let you know what I think.

Oh yes! Please do share. I've thought about getting a juicer. i've read a lot about juicing veggies and I think I may try sometime in the future.
