Green Smoothies and drinks are all the Rage….
Do you wonder Why?
When I first learned about them I was very skeptical until I investigated a bit more deeply.
I found a lot of information on them from Victoria Boutenko. She wrote about them and won numerous science awards proving that the best protein is dark leafy green vegetables.
She say this also:
“In 2004, I had already been eating a raw food diet for more than ten years and although switching to an all raw diet had allowed me to reverse my most serious conditions – edema, arrhythmia, and depression – I still wasn’t experience the most vibrant health that I was looking for. When I recognized how many greens we humans are supposed to consume daily, it became clear to me that I had to come up with an utterly new approach. From the study of human anatomy I learned that for the best possible absorption, the greens have to enter the digestive tract in liquefied form.”
But most of us don’t or won’t eat them, instead we go the meat which is second hand protein because the cows eat the green grasses-or so we hope! Therefore the most purest form of protein is from nature not the animal.
Most of you may know, I like to eat as healthy as possible, on most occasions, so I fell in love with Green smoothies and all their variations. I’ve also healed my acid indigestion, depression and even my blood pressure is down!
So, if your not as healthy as you want to be or have signs of dis-ease, you might also consider adding a green drink into your diet; to get the benefits of the wonders of nature into you body and to heal you as well.

I’ve been researching Ayurveda as well.
I came upon Nadya Andreeva, and her principles really resonated with me…she says this:
” You can eat the cleanest, most organic food on earth, and still feel constipated, bloated, and sluggish. Why? Because the way your body breaks down food is closely tied to the way you treat yourself. When you’re constantly rushing, binging/under eating, or thinking negatively, your digestive system takes the hit.
From there, the symptoms spread. Your immune system, mood, hormones, skin, body odor, energy levels, and sex drive are all affected. Worst of all, your stomach becomes a focus of anger and self-criticism.”
Do you feel that your stomach seems to let you know how your feeling? I know I did. I remember growing up with ulcers as a child and constipated beyond belief! Having family dinners where I just felt so uneasy that I didn’t want to eat because of the stress! Then, I’d eat later when everyone was asleep because it was less stressful, but I overate & binge’d on junk food, then went to bed. So, so very bad for your digestion & health!
