When we first started with the Plant Paradox program, green smoothies were recommended and they were easy to prepare. The beauty of making them is that you can combine whatever ingredients you have on hand, and there is so much variety to the various greens available. (We did add a little fruit and compliant sweetener after the 3 day cleanse period, which I think added a lot to the flavor.) But after a while–well, let’s be honest. It gets boring to eat the same thing every day. Especially when you’re just DRINKING … and there’s no real chewing!
When Ed’s weight had fallen more than we were comfortable with, I decided it might not be a bad idea to add a little more fruit than what Dr. Gundry originally recommended. So I put together the salad you see above. Simple, yet healthy ingredients. I used:
chopped walnuts (optional)
1-2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Great for breakfast, lunch, or a nice light dinner! You can easily add some grilled chicken or shrimp if desired.
