Green Smoothie For Breakfast

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

It was my first one, and I made it sort of Tex-Mex because those type of foods are my favorite flavors.

For breakfast I had:
a cup of cilantro
half a lemon and half a lime
two tomatoes
3 cloves of garlic
half an avocado
2 green onions
1 cucumber
1 jalapeno Pepper
1 red bell pepper
and a little salt

It made 2 glasses of smoothie--I think 2 servings?
But no one else wanted any so I'm going to drink it all, for 281 calories. It is DELICIOUS, has at least 6 servings of veggies, very low calorie, and its a lot--will definitely keep me full for awhile! It isn't as spicy as I expected it to be, I think the lemon and lime tamed it down. I am tempted to add a little cumin to it but its really good right now so I am afraid to fix what ain't broke =)

I am working on incorporating raw foods for breakfast, mostly juice, smoothies, or fruit.

    Wow...that sounds great!
Wonderful job.
I've been looking at making Vegan Pizza. I think I'll give it a whirl on my six days off.
I will keep you posted. I'm also going to make some humus. I'm looking forward to being in the kitchen this week. With the temps in the minus 20's...well it's not fit for anyone outdoors.
Keep us posted as to your new Raw Recipes. I'd love to hear about them.

    Hmmm...might have to give it a whirl. I'm so skeptical on smoothies keeping me full, but you never know if you don't try! Thanks for the recipe!!!!
