Banana Puddin' & Recovery Smoothie

After my morning walk with the ladies of our community it was time for a recovery smoothie and a bowl of my daughter's Banana Puddin'
Green Smoothie
1 c. water
1 banana
1/2 white peach
1/2 container of blackberries
big handful of spinach
1 celery stalk
2 radish leaves with stems
 (yes, I said leaves)
dash of cinnamon
couple drops of liquid vanilla creme stevia

While taking care of our bills my daughter popped into the room and grabbed the camera.

Yesterday in our CSA share we received a multitude of Greens, so I thought I'd indulge myself and not let anything go to waste....
Kale  Salad
&  Other  Bitter Greens
layer bottom of bowl with 2 swiss chard leaves chopped
2 flowering stalks of arugula (from my garden)
2 radish leaves and stems diced
Top with Kale Salad
2 radishes diced finely
grape tomatoes
dulse granules

This is a very Green & Bitter Salad.  Unless you like it this way...leave out the extra bitter greens and just try the Kale Salad recipe, which is very good.

Greens have a multitude of benefits. Check out this link for the Importance and Health Benefits of Greens this list is not exhaustive but has some basic information.
Greens are great for alkalizing, detoxing, cleansing and building the body!
Get your greens on today!
The average adult should be consuming approximately 2 bunches of greens each day for optimal health according to Victoria Boutenko author of, "Green For Life"

Remember to be thankful today!
We all have something to be thankful for.
Breathe Deeply
Love passionately
