"Good chefs, like artists, are visionaries. You have to have a vision of the taste, the look, the smell of your masterpiece; you hold it in your mind and make it materialize."

An avocado made it's way into the green smoothie this morning...it was lonesome, sitting way over there in it's basket, getting overly ripe. I took pity on it, and impulsively chucked it into the whirling Vita-Mix that had already turned a frozen banana and a nicely ripe mango into a lusciously smooth base for this morning's kale smoothie.
Wow! That mixture went from smooth to decadently creamy in a heartbeat! It also thickened, so in went a little more water along with the kale, then a couple leaves of red lettuce just for fun.
What a filling, yummy breakfast treat! I may be buying those really soft avos now, just for a Green Creme' now and then!
I LOVE Green Smoothies!!! I have them every single day! They start my day with sunshine, energy, and yummy-licious flavor. This one began with watemelon, bananas, strawberries, then some celery, spinach and fresh ginger. Blitz in the VIta-Mix and wa-lah: breakfast (and lunch and snacks and sometimes even dinner) of Champions! And now I'm drooling - and heading for the kitchen!
Green Smoothie of the Day
July 14: banana, apple, chard, chickweed, carrot greens
After a heart attack and a bout with colon cancer, I started fine tuning my eating choices. Over the past three years I've gradually moved closer and closer to the foods that seem to make my body happiest.
Eating raw has been, and continues to be, a quest that I enjoy and appreciate.
From A to Z, the plant world nourishes me - heart and soul!
