You Are What You Eat - Drink a Green Smoothie

Thursday, January 7, 2016

You are what you eat. No, really you are. I’m not just saying that as a cliché. Your body is made up of billions and billions of microscopic cells. They are living, breathing, eating and reproducing all day. What are you feeding them? If you are feeding them the standard American diet then those poor things are probably in bad shape. Tired, sluggish and probably not reproducing as they should.

As you know, the standard American diet is a highly processed diet. Full of refined sugar and flour, synthetic and artificial ingredients, bad fats and even carcinogenic ingredients. Think about being in a smoke filled room. Each breathe you take is filling your lungs all the way down to the tiny alveoli sacs with chemicals and poison. This is making the lungs irritated, swollen and eventually blocked. The same thing happens when you feed your body bad food. The cells just don’t function properly. Once cells don’t function properly then the organs that they make up start to malfunction too. Then that my friends… called Disease. Heart disease, diabetes, kidney failure, liver failure, obesity, autoimmune diseases and so on and so on.

Go outside and breathe in some fresh air. A good deep breathe. Doesn’t it feel good? Your billions and billions of cells think so too. They love good clean oxygen and Good Clean Food!

My dash of wisdom today is this…..Start feeding your cells more nutrient rich clean raw food. Vitamin, mineral, enzyme, rich food. A very easy way to do this is with a Green Smoothie…..everyday! You would be getting 100 to 150% of the recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables. I would bet some of you don’t even get that in a week. No joke!

 32 oz. Green Smoothie
1 1/2 cups water
2 hands full of greens (about 4 or 5 cups)
1 banana
1 apple
2 cups frozen fruit
Blend in a high powered blender. Greens first, then add fruit until smooth.

So here is a very simple green smoothie recipe. I don’t always use a recipe because I just throw in lots of greens and then what ever fruits I have on hand. Use organic when you can. I will tell you that if your body is not accustom to a lot of fruit and vegetables (fiber) then you may visit the bathroom a time or two after drinking it. But hey that's good. Most people are constipated and literally full of crap who eat the standard American diet. You could start with more fruit, then eventually add more greens. I don’t add any sweetener but you could add honey, or stevia or even yogurt as a sweetener. You can also use coconut or almond milk, or coconut water as your liquid.

Having a 32 oz. green smoothie a day can result in the following:
Increased Energy
Better Digestion
Weight Loss
Improved Skin Tone
More Alert, Less Sluggish

Go ahead and try it. I'm telling you that you will feel so much better when you are drinking raw nutrient rich smoothies for breakfast than having donuts and juice. (feel better not taste better) Haha, no really, your taste buds will eventually change and not respond like an addict when they touch refined sugar.

(Yes, I know my smoothie isn't green. Blueberries + Strawberries = purple smoothie)
