November 18-24 – Follow at Your Own Pace
Whether you are brand new to Green Smoothies or Juicing or would like to be motivated as part of a group, join us this upcoming Monday – Sunday for our Green Smoothie Experience. Free! Invite your friends and family to create this positive, health-enhancing habit before the holidays.
A Green Smoothie is a blended drink, preferably your first food of the day, consisting of simply about 40% leafy greens, 60% fruits and/or vegetables of your choice, water (or coconut water) and ice. I like to call it “a brainless, painless serving of greens” — greens being one of the most important food groups and the source of easily-absorbed protein, vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that simply cannot be duplicated in any manufactured or processed foods or supplements.
There are no real hard and fast rules on this Experience – just commit to drink at least one green smoothie each of the 7 days. Some of us will be fasting on green smoothies and green juices all day. Others will drink their breakfast and lunch and have a salad or light dinner. If you would like a gentle detox, have a smoothie or juice in the morning, a healthy lunch and a juice or smoothie for dinner. It’s totally up to you!
Below are a lot of resources for you to get started. If you have a Facebook account, check into our Events pageand click JOIN – then use the INVITE FRIENDS button and encourage all of your friends and family to join us as this is an open event. Let’s shoot for over 500 this time!
Also – please visit our FACEBOOK FAN PAGE, where starting Monday, we will be sharing recipes, feedback and I will be available to answer your questions throughout the week. I’ve created a Facebook Event Page – it’s fully public, so feel free to invite friends and family.
I have written many articles about Green Smoothies and Green Juices for similar events and will list them below. There is also a page on this site with LOTS of amazing recipes. And the YouTube video will show you how fast and simple these are to make. If you are new to Green Smoothies, do try to read at least a couple of the blogs to familiarize yourself more with these wonderful beverages.
