What’s all this then?
I thought about calling these “Smoothies for the blind,” but didn’t need the extra email should I outrage someone. I once thrived on outrage. Those days have passed.
I started this blog as a place for me to record good smoothie combos so I can remember them, but also to share with anyone else who might be utterly baffled by the notion of a “green smoothie.” Lord knows I was. I started on Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat To Live diet in February of 2008 hoping to drop some weight and feel healthy again. It’s working on both counts. I used to neeeed a nap everyday. Now I don’t, so woo-hah. On this diet, every morning, I have a green smoothie of some sort for breakfast, a trough of salad for lunch, and a very low-fat, vegan-or-darn-close dinner, and no snacks. I thought it would be impossible, as I am a gal who likes food. Buttered bread and/or cookies in particular. It’s working out, though, and feeling so much better is the main reason I can stick with it. Even if you don’t drink ALL the Kool-Aid (unsugared please), you might give a breakfast smoothie a try. It gets me going and keeps me feeling full until well after noon. Or, just browse the site and mock the hideous, hideous food that some people manage to choke down.
