In the Pacific Northwest, the leaves are beginning to change. Turning a little red. Well, sometimes that red is just what I want in our smoothies. It is such a delight to see the beautiful rich colors of the food.
We still use our regular base which usually includes carrot, part of a cucumber, 1/2 lime, and Broccoli Stem. A half of an avocado if we have it. But then we add a large handful of blueberries( frozen or fresh), a quarter of a deep dark red beet, a handful of goji berries.
Lime is a great. It balances out the flavor of the beet. The Food Healing System book “Conquering Any Disease” states the lime is great for kidneys and the skin. You want to make sure to peel the green skin off leaving the white pith which is highly nutritious. Lime has flavanoids that are known to stop cell division of cancer and also has been used to protect against cholera.
The other new addition to our smoothie are the Blue berries and Goji Berries. Goji Berries were new to us until we were introduced to the Food Healing System. Chinese Medicine refers to the berries as good for increasing sexual fluids, fertility, longevity and boosting one’s immune system. The berries have 18 amino acids, 21 minerals glyconutrients for cell communication and more beta carotene then any other plant on the earth. WOW! Beta Carotene is great for improving vision and the respiratory system.
Blueberries are also excellent for vision. In the FHS blueberries are used to prevent eye damage, preserve eyesight and reverse myopia. Its those Anthocyanin micronutrients.
Well, hope you enjoy this latest smoothie. We just had it for lunch.
