Energizing Veggie Drink

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.

About Tamara Lewis

I'm in my 65th year of discovering how to have a Vibrant Life - 37 of those years have been teaching elementary school children. I love to travel - I've been across mainland U.S., in Hawaii, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia and Canada. R.V. camping is one of my favorite ways to travel. I also enjoy reading, writing and spending time with friends and family. I'm a small group leader for Bible Study Fellowship and enjoy attending Buena Park Christian Fellowship. Most of these posts are a result of a lot of reading, listening, thought and experience.
