Today is day 4... So far so good. I have had a small sugar headache, no runny bowels and I feel full all the time.
How I make a Smoothie: I start with Kale and Spinach with some water and ice and blendtec it up to liquid, then add carrots, an apple, banana and frozen strawberries, some flax oil and stevia and blend it up to a bright green smoothie. IF I add blueberries, it turns brown..... either way the color could make you stop....but the nutrients and benefits make me continue. I just close my eyes and sip. I am amazed how much I like them.
I may be putting to much hope in the power of the Green Smoothie.... I am hoping it helps Landon's headaches to just go away. (Processed foods could be the issue with his migraines) I am hoping to lose some weight.( already down 6 lb.) I am hoping it will help with Wayne's high cholesterol........ and Laila's poor nutrition habits... and Mom's chemo/caner recovery, and Dad's high blood pressure and diabetes and the list goes on and on..... I think it might even bring about world peace.
Good news: I don't have to think about what's for dinner for a month!
|Laila and Heather Kofford trying their first Green Smoothie: Laila doesn't like the banana in hers. Heather gave it a big thumbs up.|
