... this would be it. And most days I do.
For me, my creativity is fueled and mental clarity is more abundant. I feel lighter and more fluid in my yoga practice. Also, I have never encountered a more perfect mood elevator. Green smoothies make me a happier person. For real.
For my husband (he digs them too), his job requires extreme focus and awareness. He spends a lot of time in the courtroom and meeting with clients. He always needs his game to be on and green smoothies are his secret weapon.
Lately I've been adding a pear to the mix. In the blender goes one apple, one pear, frozen strawberries and about 3-4 cups dark greens (the kale in this photo is packed in there, it doesn't look like much but indeed, there is a lot). Add an optional drizzle of maple syrup/agave/or honey, and about one quart of water. Whirl away.
Yes, the whole blender is for me. Half now, half later.
Because I'm worth it... and so are you. Care to join me?
Edited to add: Your green smoothie enthusiasm is inspiring! I will be back after the weekend to write a follow-up post. I wish I could join all the love in the comments right now but it is sunny and 80 degrees here at the moment... priorities, you know? I will address all of your questions and thoughts early in the week. See you then!
