Oh yes! Pack that blender FULL, FULL, FULL of greens! The taste isn’t really different and you are getting so much more nutritionally! Think about it — you will get at least 4 servings of your fruits and veggies for the day! Yesterday, I made a massive green smoothie. And today I made another for my morning workout…but first, here is Friday’s smoothie:
1/2 cup coconut water
3 cups kale
1 cup turnip greens
1 cup collard greens
1 cup mustard greens
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup blueberries
1 cup pineapple
3 tbsp chia seed
First, I added all the greens – such a great assortment! You can choose to mix a lot of greens in your smoothie or a different green each day for variety. But, variety is important! You want to switch it up a bit.
After blending all of that up I added the fruit and chia.
This smoothie, even with all of those greens, was still awfully sweet. My first sip made me go – eeee, that’s sweet!
I saved some of this for my husband (as I do every day). But by the time he got home in the evening it was awfully thick (from the blueberries) but I thought…mmm…imagine freezing this in the summertime, it was the perfect consistency for a faux-ice-cream. If we could work on the colour, we’d be on to something!
Today, I made my smoothie first thing in the morning so I could have some extra energy for my workout. There was no time for pictures, except the one afterwards of my almost finished smoothie. This was 8 cups of greens (in total), mostly kale and a little spinach, banana, pineapple, coconut water and chia (yup, pretty close to yesterday’s smoothie).
Tomorrow, I’m going to add some good fat to my smoothie – I can’t decide what yet…avocado, cod liver oil…only time will tell!!

Lisa's expertise and experience in holistic care is second to none. I had come down with pneumonia and I was going on 3 weeks before I set aside the standard antibiotics and tried Lisa's holistic remedies. It was like night and day, I felt better in a matter of 24 hours. Lisa even taught me how to make my own homemade inhaler which helped relieve my aching chest cavity and lungs. I can't recommend Lisa enough, my only regret is not seeking her help sooner, lesson learned! Thanks Lisa :)
