Summer Delight Green Smoothie
My friend Debbie introduced me to the book Green For Life. It is a nutritional plan based on the diet of chimpanzees that requires the blending of lots of greens and fruits. I was so happy when John jumped right on board with replacing a meal a day with a smoothie. He also found me a fantastic industrial strength blender on Craigslist for $10! First, the smoothies are unbelievably delicious. Second, it is so fast and easy to get a variety of nutrients from greens and fruits by drinking them versus taking the time to cook and/or eat them. Third, nothing is lost, as is sometimes with juicing, and it is raw, whole, fiber and vitamins. It can get pricey, but it is worth it to buy organic.
This smoothie is a combo of 6 peaches (no pit), 2 handfuls of spinach, and 2 cups of water blended smooth.
