Every once in a while, I like to change-up our breakfast smoothie and on April 1st my husband and I decided to drink two smoothies a day. We have one in the morning and then one either between breakfast and lunch or between lunch and dinner. We can already feel the difference in our energy levels.
Per request: Below are the smoothie recipes.
The Green Apple (Breakfast)
One handful of celery
Two handfuls of spinach (you can use frozen)
16 ounces of distilled water
Blend thoroughly. We make ours at least the night before so they are cold.
“People who ate lots of white-fleshed fruits and vegetables-mostly apples, pears, bananas, and cauliflower-had a 52 percent lower risk of stroke over a 10 year period than those who ate the least of those foods. Achieving that difference only took eating an apple a day.” -Dutch researchers/Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association
The Orange Bowl (In between meals)
One handful of baby carrots (I use de-thawed frozen)
One handful of Romaine lettuce
One peeled orange
12 ounces distilled water
Blend thoroughly. Again, we make them the night before so they are cold.
Why did the orange stop rolling down the hill?
It ran out of juice.
