ow are you hangin’ during all the holiday craziness? Kevin and I braved the mall yesterday… luckily we had our green smoothies to keep us going. (Maybe wine would work too! Ha! It was a bit nuts!) I’ve been thinking about you. As we approach the last day of Green Up, I want to touch on next steps. Even though the holiday week is upon us, we can still continue adding something green each day. You might want to begin adding a spinach salad to the mix or throwing in collards for a soup. Possibly you will stick with making smoothies because you’ve gotten the hang of the process, and you are just lovin’ how you feel. You can even begin to add two greens to the smoothies instead of one. Maybe try the ratio of 3:1 (3 veggies to 1 fruit) for a few smoothies. Just promise me that you will keep up with all the amazing smoothie magic as much as you can. The main thing I want you to remember is to just try one easy green thing each day. By now, if you were consistent with your green smoothies, you’ve noticed a few changes such as feeling lighter, less stressed, nourished, satisfied for hours, not craving sweets as much, etc… As we ease into the finish line, I wanted to chat a bit about balance and how our dark leafy greens play a big role. The chlorophyll and phytonutrients from the dark leafy greens are so important to help get us back to balance in our cells so we can minimize inflammation.
For today’s drink, we add chard for our leafy green boost. AND for a nice after-party flush (lots of celebrating going on!); today we add broccoli, avocado and apple. Yahoo! Let’s make Flush Out!
