Chlorophyll”s composition is the closest to human blood that occurs in nature. The green color that you see in vegetables is nutritious chlorophyll. The biggest problem we have is accessing and absorbing the chlorophyll because of the tough cellulose walls in our green veggies. It takes a lot of chewing to really break down those walls and benefit. Hence my OBSESSION with the vita-mix machine.
Each morning you will hear the great rumbling of the vita-mix in the
Harari kitchen. As the members of my family make their yummy green goddess smoothies. The Vita-mix fully breaks down the cellulose walls of the greens, as well as predigests them (chews it up) and gives your body an amazing shot of nutrition.
I put about 2 to 3 cups of greens usually romaine lettuce, baby spinach, baby bok Choy , celery and or kale with about 1 1/2 cups of water. Give that a whirl, then add some fruit. Apples, pears, peaches, bananas, mangoes, berries….any combo you like. You can use 1 or all the green choices, and whatever fruit combo you like. I also like to add a superfood like acai. What a way to start your day! Energy in a glass, I tell you! A little shot of lemon gives your liver a boost……throw it in there!
Just stop for a minute, about 1 hour later, ask yourself ‘how do I feel?’ Ahhhhhhhhhh! I am hooked!
