|Blending my Kombucha Green Smoothie with my Ninja Mega |
Kitchen System Pro 1500W.
Good morning everyone, and Happy New Years Eve to you all. I pray and HOPE you make the best out of this new year! Anway with that... I just made this tangy Kombucha Green Smoothie drink. What I like about this recipe is, there are no set rules. What I had on hand is what I used. Adding homemade kombucha has made it so much more alive with it's probiotics. What can I say, for me, probiotics and solulable fiber found in vegetables has helped me so much in my recovery to wellness, and a 50 lb. weight loss without dieting is just a plus! I just add drinks like this and other probiotics foods to my daily diet (See my blog, "What Probiotics Have Done For Me, part 1, 2. if interested) Anyway for me, as long as it is green and alive, I am a happy camper.
Well it's breakfast time and usually I don't go big on breakfast early in the morning. I will save the heavier meal for brunch, lunch or dinner. However I feel the need for energy now. What better way to wake up every thread in your body with with some homemade kombucha, a beautiful green salad, seeds, and some fruit. Only problem is I have a busy morning schedule and don't have time to sit and properly chew a salad in the morning. That's great if you do but most folks don't have time or take time to properly feed your body REAL NUTRITION so early in the morning.

I could HOPE for. See Brenda Watson
on PBS. She's so full of HOPE.
