It started with my last visit with daughter and family. She had been telling me about her new found green smoothie. "Green", I said....I don't know. Why do we jump to conclusions when green foods/drinks are mentioned?
The liquid for the smoothie is this wonder in a bottle:
The fruit inside;
5 3/4 apples
a hint of pineapple
Do you find any of those flavors offensive? Me neither, in fact I love them all.
The boost inside:
spirulina, chlorella, broccoli, spinach, blue green algae, garlic, barley grass, wheat grass, ginger, and parsley. No added sugar, no preservatives, non-GMO, vegan.
I tasted it while home alone, just in case I didn't like it...Not a chance....I liked the flavor very much.

The kicker is what she added to the juice:
I know you have heard of ch, ch, ch, chia......It's been around forever. Check out this link for the entire story plus benefits of this fiber.
Once again I paused at the appearance of the fiber in the juice....then I tried it and guess what...it didn't taste bad at all. I should have known I would like it if my daughter did, we agree on foods straight across the board! I have gotten in the habit of it every morning and actually look forward to my smoothie. What I like most about it is the fact that it actually suppresses my appetite....yes, it really does. I don't get hungry and I don't crave snacks at night anymore.
I have only missed one day of this mixture since I started it...the day I hurt my knee. That night when I went to bed I couldn't figure out why I was so hungry! And then it dawned on me, I didn't have my smoothie this morning. That's all it took to make me really realize that it has curbed my big ole appetite! I've never had anything achieve that!
I know I've rambled a bit on this post but I did want to share this healthy drink with you all. Either one would be beneficial on its own but together, they pack a punch!
I want to thank you all for the kind comments on my last post. I am getting around better but I swear every muscle in my arms and legs are sore from over compensating for that one knee! I am thankful to be better and very thankful not to have heard "one" word from the doc (surgery) whew!
Have a good day all and try a green smoothie!
