Have a Cool Drink of Greens

Try this recipe. I think it’s delicious!

Put the following in a blender:

  • 1.5 cups of Trader Joe’s Organic Green Tea Lemonade (or some facsimile)
  • 2 stalks of organic celery
  • a handful of organic greens (a salad mix or spinach, whatever you have on hand)

Now blend, drink, enjoy!

If you use organic ingredient, the health benefits to yourself and our shared environment are greatly increased. (Eventually, I plan on write more on this. For now, see this short, out-of-the-months-of-babes video: My Potato Project: The Importance of “Organic.”)

If you think that you can’t afford organic produce, an inexpensive option does exit: Grow your own. And if you live in an apartment or small space and think that you don’t have the enough room to grow produce, think again!

See this video to see what I mean:

Note: If your time is more important than your money, businesses exist that will do the planting for you.
