Growing Girls Gobble Garden Greens

  This tongue-twister is true!  My daughter is seen above using her sign language to say that she would like some more tasty home-concocted green smoothie, which not only enhances her brain power, but also her charming green mustache. ;o)~ ... Pick some kale or your preferred garden greens and blend with your favorite ingredients.

Ingredient Ideas:

plain or frozen yogurt, frozen berries, orange juice, banana, raw farm-fresh egg (whisked seperately with a teaspoon of preferred liquor to sterilize), tablespoon fulls of seeds and grains such as: flax, chia, pumpkin, dried goji berries, purple corn, millet, wheat germ, spirulina, sweeten to taste with pure maple syrup or honey, spice it up with some cinnamon, cloves, or nutmeg ... throw in some carrots, a splash of olive, hemp, or avocado oil, a pinch of himalayan pink salt, ... a whole food multi-vitamin (in tablet form) will blend up well too.  ...  Last but not least, THE KALE!  Cram in as much as you can pick, and share with the family!  ... Can you tell that we have a Vitamix? ;-)

  My son in the garden helping me pick some swiss chard.  The garden greens are so wonderful; we have rainbow swiss chards, red and green leaf lettuce, mustard greens, arugula, (spinach didn't do well this year), radish, beet, endive, broccoli, and my favorite, kale!  We planted the seeds in early spring, and here they are in early summer!  So many benefits for a growing family: growing greens is simply the best!
