GREEN: An Acronym for Health Success

by Frederic Patenaude

If there was one recipe that could help you lose weight, overcome nutritional deficiencies, slow down the signs of aging and make you feel just great, would you be willing to try it?

Tempting, isn't it?

When I first got into raw foods, the best foods to ease the transition were avocados, nuts and other heavy foods. Later, I learned the importance of eating more fruit. Now, I also advocate the consumption of *green smoothies*.

The concept is simple: blending fruits with green leaves creates the tastiest, most nutritious meal ever. It's great if you're starting out with raw foods, and even better if you've been into it for a while.

To test it out, try something simple. 1 cup of water, 2-3 ripe bananas, a big handful or two of spinach leaves. Blend and add more water if necessary.

Sounds weird? Green smoothies are like the “matrix” in the movie by the same name. You cannot be told what green smoothies are, you have to try them for yourself...
