"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."

The other end....
When I had a working juicer, I put my share of carrots into a glass. I don't recall using the green end, though. Probably because that particular juicer didn't do greens well.
Now I can use the other end of those carrots! There is a yummy salad sorta dish that I make with grated carrots and grated fresh beets - the green end usually made it out to the horses, or goats. Now, the greenies go into the VitaMix!
This morning's green smoothie: fresh pineapple, half an orange juiced, and a good handful of carrots tops. I was a little tenative with the first sip - afterall, there was no banana for sweet creaminess. But the pineapple carried the job - what a surprise, a fresh greeny sweetly pinappley flavor!
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!
