More Green Smoothie = More Happy

March 15, 2008 at 1:11 am 10 comments

When you are making your green smoothie in the morning…make double the amount! It’s so much easier to make it all in one batch, and then you have a ready-made, delicious & satisfying snack for later in the day. I love keeping empty bottles like this one just for this purpose. Bella has an empty “mini” Naked juice bottle that is her special smoothie bottle. She loves knowing that it’s in the fridge full of green smoothie just waiting for her whenever she wants (it usually doesn’t last very long!) and I am more than happy to give it to her.For those of you that work full time and have access to a fridge…this is a great way to bring raw to the office, or even just a quick and healthy snack for the afternoon.

Also, don’t be afraid to have 2 smoothies in one day … it’s a great way to stop cravings in their tracks! Greens are where it’s at!

    And don’t you feel even more special, spoiled and stuff when it’s in a super cute bottle like that?! I totally would…I’m still a sucker for marketing lables and such.

    My husband loves Kombucha, too! We actually just got in from buying a bottle, my treat for him being so wonderful this week! He wants to learn how to make his own (he loves it that much). Any plans of venturing into the realm of personal kombucha-making in the future?

    My cravings were totally gone by day 2 of going raw/semi-raw…my hubs didn’t believe me, and it took him about 2 weeks (he was probably cheating!) but he doesn’t have cravings anymore either!!!

    I grew my own SCOBY for at-home kombucha brewing about a month ago with GT’s bottled kombucha. IT IS SOOO EASY!!

    Here’s two great links!

    My homemade kombucha tastes AMAZING!

    Growing up, on St. Patrick’s Day, my mom would make an entirely green dinner…green peas, green mashed potatoes (with food coloring), green salad…

    I decided to put a twist on that tradition and finally dive into the world of green smoothies today. I just made my first one and it is AMAZING! It is so yummy and I can’t believe how many greens I fit in there! Thanks for the inspiration, Sara!

    I made green smoothies for my family this morning and they were a big hit. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I love the idea of making bigger batches for later in the day, or the next day.

    Everything I’ve read said that this is not ideal, as the enzymes break down etc etc basically you should drink green smoothies within 1/2 hour.

    So, for those that do make extra – does it still taste the same and is it still fresh?

    Kate…ideally, it’s best to drink them right away. However, in her book, Green for Life, Victoria Boutenko says that they can be stored for up to 2 days without losing to many nutrients. I try to fill them as full as possible with a super tight lid to keep out oxygen. They still taste great…I have found that smoothies with orange/lemon tend to change flavor throughout the day, but they are still good.

    Now JUICING on the other hand, has that magic window of time (usually 30 minutes) where the good stuff will go away. But smoothies are different.

    I love making smoothies / juices. I actually store mine in the same glass container – Organice Raw Kombucha. ha ha This is unrelated to the smoothies – but where did you get all the cool stickers that are on your laptop???

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
