Energizing Veggie Drink:
Tomato (2-3 medium)
Cucumber (1 small or 1/2 large)
Celery (2-3 stalks)
Sweet peppers (green, red, yellow or orange-1 large or 2-3 small)
Carrots (handful of baby carrots – large bag of organic carrots available at Sam’s Club)
*Spinach (other dark green leafy vegetables can be substituted)
(save time and money by using frozen spinach – Trader Joe’s has organic frozen spinach for less than $2)
Put all of this in a blender that makes whole juice (Blendtec has a “whole juice” button on it. I love mine, it’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made.)
Other heart healthy ideas:
Use 100% Virgin Olive Oil instead of butter on top of potatoes, sweet potatoes and toast. Sprinkle with a little *sea salt. Olive Oil has Omega-3’s – the healthy cholesterol(HDL) Lousy cholesterol is LDL. Omega 3’s are also known as mood boosters.
Guacamole or sliced avocado is delicious on top of a baked potato. This also has Omega 3.
Put cinnamon on top of your “oiled” toast – it has a lot of health benefits and tastes great.
*Sea salt seems to be stronger than regular salt so I use less.
