If I haven’t convinced you on green smoothies YET . . .

I did an experiment just now that is really quite astonishing. I went to my BlendTec with a list of fruit and vegetable serving portions according to the USRDA.   I made myself a green smoothie for tomorrow with 11 servings according those portions—that’s right,  11 SERVINGS, of fruits and vegetables.   You are imagining […]
