Super Smoothie or Specialized Smoothie?
I make a Green Smoothie every other morning, 16 oz for today (Breakfast and Lunch), and the other 16 oz for tomorrow. The truth is that if I don't get my nutrition in my smoothie I don't get it. (I take supplements also) A few of my smoothie drinking friends turn up their noses at what I call my super smoothie, 3 or 4 different greens, small amounts of various protein powders, ground flax and chia seeds, avocado, carrot, dates and a few fruits, blueberries and whatever is in season or looks good to me at the time. Other than the experience of different flavors am I missing something by throwing it all in the VitaMix at one time?
I don't follow recipes, what I drink has evolved from a fruit smoothie. My evening meal can best be considered filler and I'll deal with that in the future. Any reasons, other than my friends "yuck" to not do an "all in one" smoothie.

I sprout and will be watching this. Sprouting is so easy and so healthy as well. My favorite is sunflower sprouts. Cost me a fraction of the cost in WF and they are so so good and great for me!
Jar sprouting is easier yet! Yummy health is so easy.

Most people that eat proceed food or have been over weight have caused stress to the liver. This is a general link that has listed some healthy foods to help the liver out. Besides other helpful/healthful things.

As well as a glass of water with a half of lemon (squeezed) each morning is a good helpful thing to do each morning.

The smallest and the most simplest herbs can be very powerful. We should always see the health benefit and also the problems they could cause as well.

For those who like reading about healthy living, post your inspirational everything here. Whether it be quotes, articles, stories...pretty much anything you would like to share that doesn't fall into one of the other discussions.

This is taken from my morning share from Renegade Health.

Subject: It's Easy Being Green

Unlike Kermit the Frog -- who is a frog (and green) --
the human has a much easier time being green.

When I say "green," I don't mean pigmented skin and
floppy arms Kermit green. I mean the ability to eat a
diet high in things that are green (of course,
excluding Mountain Dew and green M&Ms -- which
contrary to pop culture rumor are not aphrodisiacs.)

Why eat more green?

If you're forgetful, irritable, have mental fatigue,
depression, insomnia, confused more often than not or
have gingivitis or periodontal disease there's a good
chance you're deficient in green. (More
scientifically, folate and chlorophyll, which are the
two nutrients that are abundant in leaves.)

If eating green can help you clear away the fog in
your brain and make you right again it could possibly
be the most effective, and least expensive medicines
around. This is why it makes sense to get as much of
it as you can, even if you think you already eat
enough.

The good thing about green is that it's pretty hard to
eat too much and, most likely, the increase in your
greenliness will leave you feeling smart, sharp and
trim.

Green is also found in many different shades. This
way even the most picky eaters will find one they
prefer. It's dark in kale, collards and chard.
Medium in romaine, escarole and rocket (that's for all
the Brits.) And lightest in celery, endive and bok
choy.

To be green, as a human, it's also much easier to keep
your anonymity than it is for our fellow froggy
friend. No one will know the difference if you're
green or not -- your skin won't change. Whether
you're green or not, you just blend in with everyone
else. You can keep it a secret for as long as you
want, or shout your greenness from the roof of your
home (just be aware this could get you arrested,
particularly if you choose to do so in a frog suit.)

To be green, you simply have to change the way you
think, which I'll show you how to do in a second.
What's even better is that doing so doesn't require
extensive supplement programs, traveling across the
world to see the primary expert in a field or any time
away from your everyday life, your family, your
friends.

So now, no matter how much green you think you have in
your diet, it's time to raise the bar just a little
bit more (or, first, get a bar if you consider
yourself relatively un-green.)

Here's the trick to doing it, one that your health
guru can never sell you. It doesn't require a system,
protocol or program. It's a simple, seven word
question even you can remember.

When you sit down for your next meal ask yourself
this:

"Is there enough green on my plate?"

Use your intuition to answer the question and don't
let it down if you answer "no." Add enough to make it
a "yes."

Just a simple question, and suddenly it's so easy
being green.

Walk through your journey with a loving open heart and as well mind. Treat others as you would like to be treated.
