Green Genie

This is my third and final day of the Green Smoothie Queen‘s 3-Day Green Smoothie Challenge. Tera has been an excellent greens guide, hooking me up with great new recipes, new ways of looking at eating and kick-starting me off to a great and healthy spring. Check out these delicious-looking raw food CUPCAKES on her site! You all know what a sweet tooth I have.
Today’s yumbliness–walnuts, coconut milk, kale.
 I had already concocted one earlier with beet juice, tons of kale, arugula, yellow grape tomatoes and maca. Just needed a bit more protein with a little chew factor to get me through my next deadline. 
Yesterday, the challenge was a bit of a, well, challenge. We attended a welcome-home brunch out in Jersey for a dear friend, and while the idea of bagels and lox wasn’t going to knock me off my quest for mean, clean green-ness, initially I did feel a little funny taking my Mason-jar-encased greenies out of the bag I’d brought from home and consuming them at the table! As it turned out, one guest was entering upon a doctor-prescribed allergy food-elimination cleanse today, Monday, the host-hubby had helped his wife become green and clean during breast cancer chemo last year and the guest of honor has been a long-time vegan. It also gave me something to talk about, allowing me to share my green journey with like-minded health-pursuing individuals!
Ahhhh. Audible sigh of health + happiness.
Your Happy Greens Goddess Kim!

St. Paddy’s Day Greenie Challenge

Erin go braugh.
And eat your greens!
In honor of this St. Paddy’s Day, I’ve undertaken the Tera Warner Green Smoothie Queen challenge to eat only greenie drinks for the next three days. So, I’m waiting until I’m good and starving before diving into this one I made a little bit ago. I think y’all kinda know the drill by now: Kale, lots of kale. And this one has a huge English cuke in it, plus a few haricot verts and mint. What are YOU drinking that’s green today? And I’m not askin’ about green beer. Yuck!
Oh yeah. And half a Gala apple for sweetness, as you can see in my trusty

Osterizer, below.

I am stocking up so that I don’t get hungry and in the middle of mulching start munching on some nuts!
And now on this beautiful, bountiful day as I hear bagpipe and saxophone sexiness out in the park, I’m going for some more hydration and then hitting the “lawnmover pulp” as Tera, the Green Smoothie Queen, calls it!
