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.Green Goodness Bowl
Preparation time: 8 – 10 minutes
Serves 1 – 2
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
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.
