Green Smoothie Anyone?

I have had a green smoothie every day since April 21st. 108 Days!  Almost 200 Green Smoothies!

 After our initial 3 weeks of only green smoothies and raw foods, we transitioned to Green Smoothies in the morning.   It's an acquired taste, but one I'm glad I took the time to acquire.  When I first started drinking these,  I had to have it in a mug with a lid and an opaque straw.  I really didn't want to see what I was drinking.  Now I love looking at the green!

When else in my life have I had Spinach, broccoli, kale, carrots, apples, bananas, oranges, blue berries or strawberries every day?

It's so healthy... and now my body actually craves it.

Landon, Wayne, Mom, Dad and I are all drinking them.
 We are committed for a year... and hopefully for life.

Eating Green has really helped Landon's headaches.  He still has a day a week of migraines, but that's better than 4 days a week.

I wish I could say my skin is so awesome, or that I lost all sorts of weight, but I can say I feel healthier.
It's good for my head, my heart and my innards....

Here's how I make 2 quarts of Green Goodness.
in a Blendtec Blender I put 2 cups of Cold water, then 2 handfuls of spinach ( bag from Costco), some broccoli flowerets, handful of baby carrots.  Blend.... 40 seconds.....this ends up to be about 4 cups.  Then I add 2 Stevia packets for sweetening.  1  cored Apple, 1 peeled orange, 1 banana, 10 frozen strawberries and 6 ice cubes.  Blend....40 seconds... pour and enjoy.
 Wayne has found a plant based raw protein powder that we mix in it now as well... SunWarrior brand.   I make 4 quarts a day, atleast, and keep a good stock of quart jars in my fridge.
