EP009: The Power of Food with the Green Smoothie Girl, Robyn Openshaw
Whole food blending provides more nutrients and fiber than juicing.
Little changes can make all the difference in your family's health. Our bodies need the nutrients fresh food contains. Processed foods may seem easier at the time but the toll it takes on our bodies is enormous. If you want to feel better, lose weight and increase your energy levels try a green smoothie. It’s as simple as dumping vegetables and fruits in a blender. It’s nature’s pharmacy in a glass.

GreenSmoothieGirl's PINK Breakfast Smoothie!
1 1/2 cups coconut juice
1/4 cup raw cashews
2-4 large dates, pitted
1 large chunk of a raw beet, peeled
1 large carrot, in chunks
12 large frozen strawberries (or a 10 oz. bag)
Blend all but strawberries in a turbo blender until smooth. Add strawberries and blend 90 seconds until smooth. Enjoy immediately!
Note: I like to ferment my coconut juice using water kefir grains, for probiotics for gut health! I keep it on my counter every day, to drain off into my blender, and "start" some new "coconut juice kefir."
