What Do I Do With Vegetables?

Everyone knows what healthy food is. Ask any 6th grader and they will say, “fruits and vegetables”. Yet, people come to me often and say, “What do I do with vegetables?”

My next series of blog posts are going to be dedicated to the answer of that question. Here's creating great veggies the simple way.

Let’s start with green smoothies. I can’t emphasize enough how green smoothies can help nourish and refresh you everyday. Keep them simple and you will enjoy them more.

I make one every other day or so, enough so I can store some for the next day. This is my way of getting my veggies with varieties I may not eat otherwise.

My fridge is always lined with a couple of jars full of green power ready to be enjoyed. The first thing I do in the morning is to pull one out of the fridge so it can warm up a bit before drinking. I will drink half a jar, and save the rest for the afternoon when I want something cool and refreshing.  These drinks will alkalize your blood and fill you full of nutrients all at once.

 Here are a few of my favorite combinations:

Parsley – Pear

Apple – Celery – Cucumber

Cucumber – Lemon

Apple – Parsley – Cilantro

Lemon – Ginger – Kale

Apples, lemons and ginger go with everything. Add celery, cucumber, cilantro, parsley, and even lettuce leaves (Romaine is especially nice). If the lemon is too sour, add an apple or pear to sweeten. Keep them kind of watery and they become a light-refreshing beverage.
