Maintaining a good pH balance is vital to good health. Consuming
greens helps maintain this balance and our health tip today was sent by
a alert reader who passed on this information about green smoothies
offered by Victoria Boutenko www.rawfamily.com
"What do I mean by green smoothie? Here is one of my favorite recipes:
4 ripe pears, 1 bunch of parsley and 2 cups of water. Blended well.
Green smoothies are very nutritious. Green smoothies, as opposed to
juices, are a complete food because they still have fiber. Consuming
fiber is important for our elimination system. Green smoothies belong
to the most palatable dishes for all humans of all ages. With a ratio
of fruits to veggies as 60:40 the fruit taste dominates the flavor, yet
at the same time the green vegetables balance out the sweetness of the
fruit, adding nice zest to it.
"By consuming two or three cups of green smoothies daily you will
consume enough of greens for the day to nourish your body, and they
will be well assimilated. Many people do not consume enough of greens,
even those who stay on a raw food diet. The molecule of chlorophyll has
only one atom that makes it different from a molecule of human blood.
According to teachings of Dr. Ann Wigmore, to consume chlorophyll is
like receiving a healthy blood transfusion.
