That was my green smoothie today. Lovely berry rich!
I started with a basic green base:
Romaine (I use almost half a head, but you may want to start smaller!)
juice of 1/2 lemon
Then decided to give it a kick:
1 cup spinach
1 to 1 1/2 cups frozen berry medley
Romaine is one of the top sources of the lovely mineral chromium, which is important for keeping healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels. I have also read before that chromium is important for healthy color in your hair. And I've had friends tell me after a while doing green smoothies every morning that their hair was losing some of the gray and getting back to their natural colors! Hmmm.... ;-) Sometime to chew on! Er, uh, to sip on! I'm hoping to research that more...
Spinach has all sorts of wonderful benefits - hooray Popeye! Spinach is kickin' it in with TONS of Vitamin K, an abundance of Vitamin A, mega amounts of manganese, friendly folate, and so many other wonderful vitamins and minerals! Spinach really is one kickin' health food!
And berries. Ah, beautiful berries! Berries are an antioxidant explosion of goodness! Good for vision, good for the brain, and full of minerals.
So mix up something fun :) Have a great weekend!
