Eat to Live: Sylvia’s Super Salubrious Salad Shake

Eat to Live

I recently read Dr. Fuhrman's book "Eat to Live."   It is available in audio form as well as in paperback. The website is well done. 

I was very impressed and have adopted his concept of trying to eat 2 pounds a day of nutritious green foods daily.   Sylvia has come up with a tasty way to help achieve this goal that I wanted to share with you.    

Sylvia’s Super Salubrious Salad Shake

In a powerful blender ( like a Vitamix) add the following ingredients:

-1 handful of carrots
-3 cloves garlic, pressed
- ½ jalepeno pepper
-1 tsp minced ginger
-2 T. red onion
-6 rehydrated dried tomato halves
-2 handfuls of spinach
-1 large leaf of kale (center rib removed)
-3 large leaves of romaine lettuce
- 1/2 avocado
-1 t. Bragg’s Amino Acids or Nama Shoyu or soy sauce
-1 t. sea salt
-1 T. fresh lemon or lime juice
-1 T. hempseed or flaxseed oil
-1/2 cup water

Whiz altogether until a nice smooth consistency. You will probably need to eat with a spoon, but you can add more water if you want to drink it.
