Do you like your greens? Kale, chard, spinach and more, how much of these do you eat in a day?
Greens are the key to amazing health and well-being and reversing illness. “Disease goes away as a side effect of getting healthy. You don’t have to treat the symptoms. Simply treat the cause and symptoms vanish.” The cause is imbalance, a lack of nutrients, of vitamins and minerals, an excess of chemicals and artificial compounds (which sit and live around the liver). The key then is to find foods that will immediately start tipping the scale in the right direction and organic greens can do this.
Dark, leafy greens are the food most missing in diets and are, coincidentally, the most essential. Greens such as kale, Swiss chard, and watercress are packed with calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, and vitamins A, C, E and K. High in fibre, folic acid, and chlorophyll, dark greens have a medicinal power. Benefits of a diet packed with greens include blood purification, cleared congestion, improved circulation and organ function, elimination of depression and prevention of many modern ailments. A regular intake of greens leaves no room for imbalance or its associated aches and pains and instead creates opportunity for wellness, thus lowers your cholesterol levels and brings back balance.
How to enjoy a “regular intake” of greens? This is one way I do, this picture I am sharing a green smoothie with one of my best friends, Liz.
Here is one recipe I make at home:
Base: I mainly use water or coconut water about an English cup and a half
Fruit: a good half cup of organic frozen raspberries
Greens: organic large handle full of organic Swiss Chard (washed)
Sweetness: 1 date or half a frozen banana
Sometimes, English bee pollen because I live in England. If I lived in New Zealand I would buy NZ bee pollen. The main reason I do this is to build my immunity in the country I live in and because pollen is a complete protein. I believe this wholefood enhances the feeling of inner wholeness and nurturing with nourishment.
Process in your blender until smooth. Then sit and enjoy.
