My wife and I have been drinking green smoothies for about a year now.
Currently we are eating a vegan diet for three weeks as an experiment. This was the result of finding out how much MSG and sugar was in Thai food.
After talking to others about this we heard about these two documentaries.
Shocked and challenged about what we put in our bodies we decided to go vegan for three weeks.
Yesterday we finished week on and we feel great!
One of the things I have personally enjoyed has been cooking the food we eat. We know exactly what we are eating and it has been fun actually touching the food we eat before we eat it.
A lot of people have been asking for the recipe for the smoothie we have been drinking.
So here it is… I like to call it the GREEN MONSTER
There are a lot of variations so experiment and have fun!
Preferably use all organic vegetables. We do a mix simply because of cost.
If you are in Bangkok I know and personally recommend Adams Organic. They are a great company and have quality product.
2 cups of filtered water
1 large head of cos lettuce (aka romaine)
1 large bunch of spinach
3 stalks of celery
1 green apple
1 red apple
1/2 a lemon – we only use the juice
Add water and cos/romaine to the blender. Blend and then add spinach. Blend until smooth.
Then one by one begin to add celery, apples, banana, and lemon juice.Also a good blender makes a world of difference! I recommend a VitaMix but if you live overseas like we do then you quickly realize they cost a fortune.
We make ours in large batches and have kept them in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
Enjoy and let us know how it goes!
