Green smoothie recipe for the day:  One Pear over the Rainbow

2 bananas

1 bunch of Rainbow Chard

1 bartlett pear

3 valencia oranges

1 lime

2 cupfuls of pure water

a couple handfuls of ice cubes

Blend in the Vitamix machine for about 45 seconds and done!

 

This one tastes very refreshing.  Not too sweet and the citrus in it really gives it zest!  

With all of the news lately about supplements and the questions wondering if people really are helping themselves by taking them, I feel really good knowing that these green smoothies that we drink each day are very healthy and full of nutrients and vitamins.  I am a big believer in the idea that you can get all the vitamins and minerals that you need through a healthy diet.

The other thing that surprises people the most is the amount of protein that you get from these greens that are in the smoothies.   Our culture is steeped in falsehoods and none is more false than the idea that if you do not eat your meat, then you do not get any protein.  Think of the poor buffalo and how small he is because he only eats grass! (just kidding)  Though I am not a vegetarian, I do chuckle over these misconceptions that we have.  After reading Colin Campbell's book "The China Study", I have cut way back on my meat consumption and when I do eat meats, I usually have organic or range fed chicken.  Occasionally, I will make homemade beef jerky  in my Excalibur dehydrator but buy only range fed beef from Whole Foods for that.

I hope that you enjoy the green smoothie today like we certainly did!
