Drink Green

 

Day 2~ How to Drink  Green Daily

Try to drink a green drink everyday~ A smoothie or juice made from mostly kale, spinach or other leafy greens. Nutritionists recommend to eat 6-8 servings of veggies and fruits a day. If you drink 1 hardy (12) ounce glass of fresh veggie juice it should give you a whole days worth of what you need to consume.

I have been drinking an awesome green drink every day for a week now and feel great! .. I’ve also lost a few pounds 🙂 BIG PLUS especially when I can’t go running.

You May ask why?

  • Pesticides, genetically modified seeds, and conventional farming have depleted key vitamins and minerals from our soil. For example, a zucchini today does not have the same amount of nutrition as a zucchini did twenty  years ago… :(. Because of this we need to overcompensate through eating as much whole plant organic veggies as possible. Drink a green drink then…cheers!
  • You are saying goodbye to toxins by detoxing naturally. Many diseases are triggered by poison consumed from polluted foods with pesticides and GMOS. Drinking green is a quick way to detox from these poisons. Chlorophyll (what makes a leaf green) is what helps make this happen.
  • Green foods protect against all kinds of cancer.
  • Helps you get thin and fit.
  • Improves digestion

Ways to Get These Greens In

Blend IT- Use a Vitamix ( they work GREAT)

Juice IT- Add carrots to get longer eyelashes 🙂

Take a Wheat Grass Shot

When it Comes to Store -Bought Drinks….

First things first. 100% juice does not mean anything. Food companies can say 100% juice on the label even if it has additives and preservatives… Oh boy is right…

  1. Good article! I freeze my organic spinach then mix it with almond milk and a protein powder from a nutritionist (all natural), at least two a day and I can’t live without it!
