Green Smoothies in the House!

I broke down and got a new blender before I read Jason's comments. He suggested I try the thrift stores for a professional quality blender. Why didn't I think of that?

Well, I will eventually do that, but for now I have an inexpensive machine, which will probably last for a while, since I'm careful not to overtax it. I feed the ingredients in progressively. If I find a better one, I'll pass this one along. Maybe Fierce Teenager can take it away to college.

I'd really like to do a smoothie feast. I know I'm not in a place for a juice feast, but the smoothies have been calling to me, especially since I dropped my Raw percentage over the holidays. It seems like it would be a good way to cleanse myself somewhat. I'm not ready to commit though, because I still have to use everything in my wonderful CSA basket and I have to prepare foods for the rest of the family. Well, I'm still playing with the idea, as I think it would help me go deeper into health--physically, spiritually and emotionally. Right now, I'm journaling a lot in order to better see the connections between my emotions and my spirit to what I'm putting in my body.

I just finished a great juice from the cafe at Mother's Market: apple, lemon, ginger & wheatgrass. It made me want to invest in a juicer and start doing that at home. I think I'll check the thrift stores.

The Green Smoothie Queen 3-Day Challenge starts next on February 18th. AND since it only lasts three days, you can see how you like it, and if you do, you can extend it on your own!

Those of us that took the first one all decided that having at least one green smoothie each day was something we would be doing after it ended!!!
