Life is the space where “things happen.” Beauty is a measure of the balance that can be perceived with the senses. We live in a toxic environment and we must nourish ourselves accordingly. Greens serve to cleanse our bodies and our minds. They are also a great source of protein. The food that has the highest percentage of protein in the world is Spirulina (a green food!). I now value the art of smoothie-making as much as any, especially green smoothies. The Vitamix makes “getting your greens” more enjoyable than ever before.
Ray and I went 10 days on the 14-day Nutritional Fast. I’m really proud of him – this was his first cleanse/fast! Today I decided I’m going to go back on Liquids and complete the Liver flushes (we didn’t complete the final 2 liver flushes). The gall bladder flush that I did really opened my eyes to what is inside of me… and all of us if we don’t cleanse regularly and avoid dead food. I actually didn’t regain the urge to eat solid food and I still haven’t regained it, so this is a strong sign to me that I need to keep going.
Here’s the recipe for the smoothie I had today…
Sexy Super Green Smoothie
2 cups of cooled Kava Kava Tea (Yogi Tea)
1 small sweet apple
1-2 cups of Dandelion
2 Tbsp Lucuma Powder
1 Tbsp Mesquite Pod Meal
1 Tbsp Billy’s Infinity Greens, Sun Is Shining, or Pure Synergy
1/2 to 1 Tsp Maca Root Powder (start small if you are new to this food)
1 Tbsp Honey (optional – I used Y.S. Organic Farms Super Enriched Honey)
1/2 Stevia Leaf
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Scoop Sunwarrior Protein
1/2 Tbsp Lecithin
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
This would be a great smoothie for breakfast. You do want to have it earlier in the day. Go to my Basics and Essentials Page for information and links about where you can find these ingredients. And of course, you’ll want to blend this smoothie in a Vitamix Blender.
My favorite addition to smoothies these days is Lucuma, a.k.a. egg fruit. Lucuma powder is produced from the tropical Peruvian fruit that is dried and powdered. It gives a “milkshake” flavor and feel to smoothies. Lucuma actually is a popular ice cream flavor.
Here’s an informative video on Lucuma from Navitas Naturals (a popular brand that you can now find at Whole Foods)…
Green Smoothies are a powerful tool for women. If you want to shape up your body, drink mostly green smoothies for a week to a month. You will feel and look better than ever! They also calm the nerves and balance the mind.
I’m going to leave you with one more Green Smoothie Recipe with Chocolate! Greens and chocolate are great together. The calcium in greens combines synergistically with the magnesium in chocolate to create a nutritiously rich shake to start your day!
