I was making dinner and started munching away on some local (organic) field greens. I literally shove the stuff in my mouth until I can’t fit any more in and chew it like a cow. My goal is to keep chomping until whatever I am cooking is cooked. Hey, it beat snacking on potato chips.
Today, after a couple mouthfuls, it finally dawned on me….I have a blender…why not use it? I’ve actually never blended my greens before. It seemed incredibly strange filling the thing up with Arugula, Spinach and Red Lettuce….but I tried it out.
In the end, I blended a massive tub (the size of one of the big pre-packaged tubs you see at Whole Foods) of green into about 24 ounces of semi-solid mush. It didn’t taste like anything, and was more of a drink than a solid. It went down really smooth.
This was so much easier than chomping down on the salad…and I consumed about 4 times as much as I normally would have! Bonus!
Add to that my 32 ounces of fresh carrot juice this morning (go Jamba!), 2 apples, 2 bananas and a large bowl of bean sprouts…and I’m running clean today!…as long as you don’t count the two soy dogs I just inhaled.
