here are some food tips….

 

EXAMPLES OF HEALTHY FOOD COMBINATIONS:

  • Rice and beans with a salad
  • Steamed vegetables with rice and nuts

LIVE FOOD = PURE ENERGY

BASIC LIVE GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE

 

LIVE FOOD ITEMS:

  • 1 CUP (OR A GOOD MEDIUM SIZE HANDFUL) FRESH SPINACH OR PARSLEY
  • 2 HEAPING CUPS (OR TWO PIECES) FRESH FRUIT
  • GOOD, PURE WATER TO FILL BLENDER TO 32 OZ. (OR TO THE POINT AT WHICH IT WON’T EXPLODE WHEN YOU TURN IT ON TO MAX)
  • 1 CUP OF ICE (OPTIONAL)

DIRECTIONS:

BLEND:  Put everything in the blender and blend until everything is broken down as good as your blender can manage.

DRINK:  Pour into glass and drink, or into ice-filled water bottles to take with you on-the-go.  One blender-full will generally fill two large water bottles with ice, with a bit left over to drink.

CLEAN-UP:  Rinse with hot water, then tip over to drain & dry.  No need to use soap – you haven’t used anything that requires soap to break down!

 

OPTIONS:

  • Add a larger handful of greens, between 1 and 2 cups, or more. Try different combinations. Branch out to using kale, arugula, dill, watercress, beet greens, collards, broccoli, etc. or anything else green you can buy in your produce section.
  • Add less fruit, or play with fruit combinations.
  • Add your favorite (plant-based) protein supplement.
