Green Smoothies

This is what our dining room and Kitchen look like right now...

It's like a jungle, or a giant garden, or something like that...

Mama always told us to eat more veggies, but I never really paid attention until now. As I continue this road of healing and trying to become the healthiest version of me I keep coming back to the absolutely necessary nutrients that we can only get from the vegetables God gave us. It is pretty much impossible to get enough of them in our regular diet, so like so many people I have resorted to drinking green smoothies. They really aren't that, really..I promise. Every morning I just fill my blender with spinach, chard, kale, dandelion greens (don't worry I didn't pick them in the front yard), some fruit, coconut milk, water, and stevia sweetener. Yum! Yum!
Just make sure you brush your teeth afterward.

This week mom bought over $70 worth of greens at the growers market and we have been busy dehydrating them and filling jars, for those days when the fresh organic ones won't be available. So at the risk of looking like a total health freak, or a raving lunatic....that is what I have been up to lately.

Check out for more info on green smoothies, recipes, and health information. It's quite interesting!

Here's to a healthier, happier life!
