When the Dalai Lama spoke in Austin, Tx he pointed out how new research now shows that people who use the words “I” and “me” often, are statistically sick more often. In all of his Holiness’s internet market research, the Dalai Lama, being vegetarian, probably never heard of body builders drinking raw eggs.
For years, probably predating the first Green smoothie recipe, an argument persisted that on one hand raw egg was one of the few “perfect” foods containing nearly all nutrients needed by the human body. On the other hand there was the bad cholesterol issue. Finally, it seems to be settled, at least among naturopaths, that in combination with vitamin C the bad cholesterol is relatively neutralized. That makes the Orange Julius (raw egg, OJ and ice) seem like the most perfect drink on the planet and with the addition of dark green lettuce, a Green smoothie recipe that is drinkable and even more “perfect”?
Through internet market research, green smoothie recipe’s are somewhat new with several books are out, none by the Dalai Lama yet, and one common idea is that blending is healthier than juicing, as far as, vitamins, nutrients but especially fiber.
At one Raw Food Pot Luck, it was presented that THE green smoothie recipe is simply any regular smoothie with lots of leafy greens added to it.
You know it’s a good internet marketing researcher and scientist that actually tries things out. So… Drinking a salad did not sound appetizing, and could even seem revolting, but as a truth provider, it was necessary to test this green smoothie recipe thing. Here’s what happened…
Half a frozen banana, frozen strawberries and OJ would produce a basic Smoothie recipe that was ready to become a Green Smoothie Recipe, one ready for the addition of dark green leafy field greens to be added… and added… and added…
It as really amazing how much lettuce or field greens could be added before it got a little thicker. Then as it lost it’s visual appeal, having the equivalent of a large salad in this particular Green smoothie recipe, it was put to the test… Not bad, Not only did it still taste good… but imagine all the chewing that the blender did.
If your wanting your kids to eat their greens … maybe they can simply drink them… blindfolded? Try each Green smoothie recipe yourself first. Ingesting Raw foods is commonly thought to be more nutritious, as cooking is known to destroy much of the value as well. With or without raw egg or soy protein powder (“chalk flavoring”) lol, drink any green smoothie recipe at your own risk, and of course advice of your Doctor or the Dalai Lama. Have fun exploring.
Remember Life is Precious, be grateful for Green smoothie recipes, Internet Market Research, and see the cash back rewards from being sick less often? Oh yeah watch your language… you know, the use o f “I” and “Me”.
