Green smoothies are the way to go. . You can add spinach to any smoothie and you barley taste it. I also add cucumber, kale, chard, carrot juice, parsley, depending on what is in the fridge. The taste of these leafy greens pretty much get lost in a smoothie with other fruit, yogurt, milk etc........

I love all colors of bell peppers in a good omelette (with cheese too)!

I have veggies every morning for breakfast--usually steamed kale or swiss chard and then a glass of beet-carrot-kale-chard-apple/strawberry/blueberry/cherry juice. I sometimes add steamed green beans and, when it is tomato season (still waiting here), a tomato or two. I did read that if you eat greens, you should eat whole grains with them to get all the nutritional value. This morning I had barley with my greens, yesterday it was oatmeal, the day before that, 10-grain mix.

Beetroot, Celery, Cucumber, Parsley Fresh Juice

I have a veggie combo fresh juice almost every morning ... Sometimes, tropical fruit or tomato ...

I am going to be 50, however, we take exemplary care of our body machines and always have. We function on optium energy level and are professionally & socially very active. We need to be fit to handle the extreme dryness of Madrid, however, this shall not be for much longer.


Buonasera, Ciao.

This morning I made two smoothies, one for today, one for tomorrow.
2 Tomatoes
1 cucumber
1 peach
1 plum
1 apple
1 banana
1/2 cup of water
10 almonds

I often add greens/lettuces.

I noticed that when I started having smoothies everyday, my acid stomach stopped. I haven't needed an antacid now for a couple months--not in the morning, not all day and not at night. I think it's amazing.
