Let’s take a look at the human/animal chain. One of the animals closest to us is the chimpanzee. They share close to a hundred percent of the same genes with humans yet, they have a tremendous immunity to hepatitis C, AIDS and even cancer. Why?
Because they eat better. They eat greens and raw vegetables, and although we are not apt to swing from trees, we should be taking note of what these chimps do to live healthy lives because according to statistics, although we share almost a hundred percent of our genes, our diet is ninety-nine percent different. How about that?
But, there’s an easy fix to sharing the healthy side of life as well. It’s the green smoothie. And I get that you look at the color and think, ‘I’m not going to drink that!’ But within that green color is all the nutrition you need to begin a more healthy life and believe it or not, they taste great! It’s not only vegetables that can make a great drink, but fruit as well. Take for instance the coconut clementine smoothie. Hmm…where does the green come in? Throw in some bananas, coconut milk and those little clementine and then add a handful of mint or spinach and voila’ you have a green, delicious, smoothie.
So the first thing you will need is a good green smoothie blender so that everything you choose to put into it is completely mulched and blended into the perfect drink, and there are some great ones on the market today, such as:
