drink your salad

It’s January and the time of year when many of us are trying to maintain or increase our salad consumption. Here’s an idea…drink your salad!

I make a smoothie every morning that has about 3 cups of kale and spinach in it. And what’s even more impressive—it tastes good!

I start with about 1/2 cup of frozen wild blueberries in the blender. I add about 1 1/2 cups of water (or coconut milk, almond milk or milk). Add 1T ground flax seed, 1/2 banana and apple or pear, a few cubes of ice and then several large handfuls of greens. Blend it, drink it and relax because you already had your salad for the day!

    I’ll have to try this one–I am always looking for breakfast ideas without calcium, because of my lack of a thyroid–I often have salad for breakfast. Looks a bit dodgy, but I’ll take your word on the taste.
