Millie’s One a DayPosted: June 17, 2015
Add large handfuls of baby spinach to your Smoothies!
Although I drink fresh vegetable juices daily, I do not add greens to them. Greens are expensive, and you have to use a bunch to get even a tiny bit of juice. So I drink carrot, celery, green apple, turmeric, beets and ginger juices. I add huge handfuls of baby spinach to my smoothies. That way I am getting the fiber as well as the fat that helps me assimilate the nutrients in the greens. By adding coconut cream I am getting the essential saturated fats that are needed to be ingested at the same times as the greens. Remember that there is a reason that throughout time people have used bacon or fatback to cook greens with…and the flavor is great!
