It's Been One Week!
Tonight I'm celebrating one week of blending live foods. I've been sitting out in our yard with Chris watching our children make mudballs and mudball bull's eye targets at which they can through balls. I've just finished a quart (1L ) of banana, orange, bitter greens smoothie.
I've learned so much over this time. I feel more responsible to myself, family, community, and the world! I've adjusted my palate. While starting with soups, puddings, and smoothies of sorts, I've come to find magic in the green smoothie. It's great to have support from Victoria of Raw Family through her work. I've gone back and read pieces of her book (Green For Life) that I highlighted last winter.
I am so fascinated by greens. I'm excited to live where we do and to receive the abundance from the Tree of Life garden for our smoothies. Yesterday afternoon, I got into squat position and using my little pocket knife, I cut greens at the stem and filled a big paper grocery bag about 3/4 full to take home. Tonight our children couldn't palate the bitterness in their salad. I made their portions into a "gourmet" salad for Chris. Calvin felt inspired by my declaration they would "eat their greens today" and blended up a green smoothie for them: 1 mango, 2 bananas, 3C water, and a handful of the greens.
