I don’t know if there is such a day. If there isn’t, perhaps there should be. As cancer patients strive to find natural ways to fight the disease, we come across many recipes. Smoothies have become a large part of my diet.
I had been making the fruit smoothies every morning for several months before I discovered Hallelujah Acres website for optimal health and cancer-fighting strategies.
Their veggie recipe is as follows:
1 stalk celery
Cut in size of chunks according to your blender directions. There are no recommendations for any seasonings or liquid. Of course, you can’t make a smoothie without liquid. My solution: I use 100% vegetable juice (I like the Great Value brand). I add enough to cover about 2/3 of the vegetables, then use the “grind” setting. When it appears everything is ground up I add more juice until I get the desired consistency. Then I sprinkle in some garlic salt and 2 teaspoons of Stevia. I can’t drink all of that in one sitting, so I divide it into two servings.
My problem is, sometimes I don’t do my breakfast dishes right away. I am often tired. So if the blender doesn’t get washed before lunchtime, I don’t want to wash it and turn around and use it again. By the time I get around to making the veggie smoothie again half of my veggies are spoiled.
I started a new routine today. I rinsed the blender after my fruit smoothie, then made enough veggie smoothie for 2 days. I pour what doesn’t get used today into containers with lids and put them in the refrigerator. That used up all of my beets so they won’t spoil. Since I use celery and carrots in other recipes and salads I don’t have to worry about them spoiling either. I think this is going to work. I will have to buy more beets tomorrow so I will have them on hand Wednesday when I make the next batch. Using all of the beets at once is a good idea. It’s a good thing I like beets. Lol.
