Join the Green Smoothie Revolution
(double it for two people)
put the following ingredients in a blender...bottoms up...
about 5 strawberries (fresh or frozen)
enough blueberries (fresh or frozen)
4-6 pieces of kale (stalks and leaves)
1/4 of a bunch of parsley
water to blend (you can add some ice too)
I like to add 1/2 an avocado every once in awhile - it makes the texture creamier
You can also add a high quality protein powder. Recently, I've been eating a handful of almonds with my green smoothie for protein. You can always throw the almonds right into the blender.
note: don't wimp out on the greens and you can always add more...
Kale is high in vitamin K. Studies have shown vitamin K to protect the body against cancer.
Vitamin K is also an important nutrient for bone density. It acts as the "glue" that binds calcium to make strong bones.
Vitamin K is known to help in hardening of the arteries, it promotes good heart health.
Kale is also very high in vitamin A and C, among many other nutrients.
*As always, try to buy organic fruits and veggies.
