Eat more greens, please....
I was in a quandary on how to add more greens to my daily intake. It seems the older I get in order to age gracefully I must pay attention to my diet. I needed more greens, but really folks how many greens can one eat?
Every day I make a delectable green drink, some people think it looks awful, but I love it and take it to work in my thermos. The shake has loads of fiber which keeps me feeling full, organic greens which are nutrients rich, plus water which I just don’t drink enough of.
This is the recipe I have been using, 1 cup water, 4 stalks of celery, 2 cups of mixed greens, 2 cups of romaine lettuce all organic and some vegetable tofu for protein, a bit of flavor like cinnamon, nutmeg, or a bit of stevia, 2 cups ice, blend until smooth and I am ready to go.
