Before making this smoothie, it's a very good idea to:
Peel and freeze your bananas into portions ready to toss in the blender.
I love variety when it comes to healthy dishes and drinks. My adventure with the Green Meal has started by adding it to my other vegetable smoothies as a booster. I have swapped bananas for pineapple or blueberries (no more than two types of fruits). To the original green meal smoothie recipe I added flaxseed oil, hemp seed and coconut oil. If I'm running low on Rejuvelac or organic apple juice I will use Hemp Milk (yummy).
I'm always looking for the easy and tasty ways to get my nutrients in especially on those busy days. I enjoy protein and wheat grass powders yet I'm often left frustrated because many organic powders are made with strawberry fruit extract. With my strawberry allergy that is a No-NO. Karyn Calabrese founder of Karyn's a holistic wellness company, has created "The Green Meal" in a bottle. Karyn's Kare Green Meal is made with a unique blend of kamut, alfalfa, barley, and oats and chlorophyll. This is surely a power packed source of antioxidants and nutrients.
The recipe is given in her book Soak Your Nuts: Karyn’s Conscious Comfort Foods or when your participate in her detox program. As part of my morning regimen. I find it as a convenient source of raw energy to get my day started. My first jar contained 240 grams for less than $40 (USD). With my first jar, I followed Karyn's original recipe and noticed I had more energy, was satisfied longer and has a very pleasant taste. I started out having a green meal smoothie in the mornings then graduated to enjoying it twice a day.
I'm very pleased to have another golden nugget in my healthy eating options. Visit her website at karynraw.com or stop by one or all of her three locations in Chicago, IL.. Its even a bigger treat to see Karyn and her pet Mitchell from time to time.
