|Green shake ingredients|
I have to say that the green shake first thing in the morning is my favorite. I may do this when I'm not cleansing. I know there are a lot of green shake recipes out there that I can try. Here's the recipe for the one I've been having:
Greens with Apple
handful (3 ounces) spinach
3 medium stalks (3 ounces)of kale
2 Golden Delicious apples, cored and quartered
1/2 large cucumber (I am using English) cut into pieces
small handful (1/2 ounce) parsley, long stems removed
1 lemon (peeled)
Run all ingredients through a juicer.
This green shake makes me wake up and makes my tummy feel good. Vegetables do that. I was reading in January's O magazine that we should eat 2 lbs of vegetables per day:
Loading your diet with vegetables will naturally crowd out things you shouldn't be eating... aim for 1 lb raw, 1 lb cooked.... Though two pounds might sound like a lot, a single sweet potato can get you a quarter of the way there...
Gonna have to talk to my vegetable fairy...
