Green Smoothie Day 1: Success!

Well, I woke up early to get my smoothie made, and for Day 1 I "experimented" w/ some raw cacao. I probably won't do that again ... greens and raw cacao do not (imo) compliment each other! In other words, it was a bit yucky. Now had I had a nut milk-based fruit-alone smoothie, the cacao would've been a dream ... but NOT w/ the greens!

Here's what I whipped up at 6:30 this morning:

1+ cups of water
1 anjou pear
1-1/2 bananas
1 handful of Italian parsley
2 handfuls of curley kale
3 stalks of celery

It lasted me until about 2:00 p.m. ... It's 4:30 now and I'm a bit famished. I'm having dinner at Pure Food And Wine in about two hours, though -- I'm taking a buddy out for her birthday tonight -- so I'll hold up just fine.

Check out this brief interview with the "queen" of green smoothies, Victoria Boutenko, author of the terrific little book, "Green for Life":

Love Your Green Smoothies!

Until tomorrow ... Green On!
