Green Goodness Bowl

046 Oh man, now we are talking ! This bowl of goodness is like nothing else….yes, it is jam packed with goodness.

I am so pumped up about this, I think for me, every morning needs to be a ‘Green Goodness Bowl’ or ‘Green Juice’ morning, of course the contents will vary, but that’s fine, so long as it is GREEN !!!

I remember years ago watching an Oprah show, and her guest on the show was Dr Oz?  Who remembers Dr Oz? Anyway, good ol’ Dr Oz (he wasn’t really old) was doing like a morning breakfast thing by doing a green juice.  He maintained, every morning, throw together whatever you have in the fridge that is green, blend it all together and you are sorted.  So, of course, me being me, took that to heart, and yip I had to do it. Green juice it was, and it was yummy.  Sometimes now, I change it up a bit and do delicious healthy green bowls instead, but no matter what it is always good. So, here is a bowl of green yummy delicious goodness….and I have kept it simple.060Green Goodness Bowl

Preparation time:  8 – 10 minutes

Serves 1 – 2

Ingredients:

2 handfuls of lettuce leaves, roughly chopped

1/2 cucumber, roughly chopped

1 handful of baby spinach, roughly chopped

1 handful of fresh parsley

1 green Granny Smith apple, chopped

3 -4 centimetres (1.5 inches) fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/2 avocado pear

Instructions:

Add all the above ingredients into a food processor and process.

If you don’t have a food processor, a good blender will do the trick as well, just make sure you add the lemon juice, avo, cucumber and apple in first, blend a bit and then add the rest of the ingredients.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. This has got to be the most healthy-looking bowl of yummy ingredients I’ve seen for a while, Lynne, and I imagine the apple and other fruits give it a touch of sweetness. Would you eat this on its own, or as an accompaniment to another dish?

    • Sarah, add some bacon 🙂 LOL.
      Seriously, something like this bowl, you could adapt and maybe add more apple and less baby spinach and so forth. Wish you lived close by, so I could help you out. 🙂

  2. Great way to start the day. The only suggestion I may add to this wonderful amazing dish is some whey protein and some flax seeds. Most people do not consume enough protein and healthy fats in their diets. This healthy GREEN meal is ALL carbohydrates. Carbohydrate IS NOT a “dirty word!” This drink is a blend of good quality carbohydrates. The purpose of adding the whey and flaxseeds is to limit the insulin response and to satiate oneself until the next meal time.

    Your GREEN MEAL is an EXCELLENT recommendation! 🙂
