Very important to start alkalizing with the first meal, breakfast. Maybe you're not used to a green breakfast, but if you're as sick as I am, it's really time to switch. Add your favorite green Superfood mix as you please - you might want to check to be sure it's gluten Free. ALKALIZE AND HEAL!!!!!
Here are three green smoothies for your blender:
LEMONY MINT GREEN SMOOTHIE
1-2 medium apples depending on desired sweetness
½ - 1 lemon, juiced1 head Romaine hearts
1/2 - 1 medium avocados, depending on thickness and richness desired
1 handful mint leaves
2 -4 cups water (distilled)
APPLE VEGGY SMOOTHIE
1 granny smith apple, washed, cored but with skin
4-5 stalks celery, ends & tips removed, use leaves
2 cups chopped romaine lettuce ½ of a large Haas avocado ½ bunch cilantro or parsley (depending on your preference) stems removed
3-4 cups filtered water
Chop vegetables into 1 inch pieces for easy blending. Fill blender with 3-4 cups filtered water (more or less water depending on how thick you desire your shake). Add all ingredients into blender. Puree till smooth or desired consistency.
* You can also add the juice from one half of a lemon or lime and even ¼ tsp sea salt and/or cayenne pepper.
pH BOOSTING, VEGAN FRIENDLY, PROTEIN SHAKE
1 avocado, peeled and chunked 1 lime, peeled and halved
1 cucumber (add more or less to change consistency),
roughly choped Tofu 1/2 to 1 cube (silken or soft)
Soy milk - try to find unsweetend (again add to taste/desired consistency)
1-2 big handfuls of fresh raw spinach leaves Ice to taste (if your blender can handle ice)
Peel the avocado and lime and thoroughly wash the cucumber (if it is a thick skinned cucumber, peel some of this away). Then place all of the ingredients into a blender and whizz it all up. If you are particularly keen on lime then you can garnish with some of the zest! Altenatively use lemon, or both!
Dependant upon how much tofu and soy milk you use, this can pack a punch of about 20g of protein per drink - which is not far off that of most vegan un-friendly protein shakes and powders.
