Ready… Set… Cleanse! It’s Wednesday Cleanse Day!

The green flag is flying so that must mean the track is clear and we are ready to race into our day!  It’s time to rev up your engine and try your hand at a Green Machine smoothie - it will rocket you out of the gate and keep you on track all day long!

I found that when I started making green smoothies, it was best to follow a recipe.  But once I got the hang of it, I would just use whatever leafy greens were in the fridge and whatever frozen - or fresh - fruit I had and go from there!  You just need to figure out how to balance and find the right taste for you.  After all, it’s YOUR engine you’re fueling, right?!

Here’s what I put in my blender this morning:

Green Machine Smoothie

1 1/2 cups pure water
Six chopped Romaine leaves
Four chopped kale leaves
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup frozen berries
1/2 frozen banana (doesn’t have to be frozen, but makes it icy and creamy!)
1 inch fresh ginger, grated and chopped
1 t. ground flax seeds
*Sometimes I put in a teaspoon of psyllium husk powder for a little more fiber, but don’t use it every day as your body can become addicted to it.  Seriously!




I’m also making a Super Salad to have for lunch.  And dinner.  And an afternoon snack. #grazingrocks!  Fills me up but doesn’t make me tired, so I can keep on racing all day long!  Make your Super Salad however you like! Just try to keep it a good balance of nutrients, tastes and textures.  This is my January 11, 2012 version:      
                                

Organic Girl Super Greens
Chopped Carrots
Chopped red onion
Sliced radishes
Raw cashews
Fresh blueberries
Avocado
 
I just use a little vinegar for dressing with a little salt and pepper and BAM!  I’m ready to go!

  

Check out the Organic Girl Super Greens - fantastic! And I love the cute packaging!




Well, I hope you have a wickedly wonderful Wednesday and I will be back on Friday to share another vegan or vegetarian recipe… I can’t decide!  But I DO know that it will be delicious AND make you feel like a million bucks!  ’Til then…

Cheers, dears!
