All spring and summer long, I dutifully made and consumed a daily green smoothie – loaded with fruit and either spinach or kale. I felt strong, healthy and virtuous. Then the cold weather came along and with it, distractions, long To Do lists and prior commitments that turned my days into relay races in which I was always behind. Enter Becky Striepe and her new e-book, 40 Days of Green Smoothies and an email request to write a review. At about the same time, I picked up Super Immunity and Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman, MD who advocates consuming bucket loads of raw greens each day. Becky’s smoothie recipes plus Dr. Fuhrman’s advice…I think the universe was trying to tell me something.
