Big Salad Day 9

Today’s salad was actually a liquid salad.  Otherwise known as a green smoothie.

This is my go – to on early mornings when I know I’m going to be needing lots of energy to train my clients.

Ingredients:

2 – 3 cups baby spinach
1/2 cup curly parsley, with stems
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/2 cup beet juice (I buy a carton of organic beet juice rather than juicing my own but the latter is definitely better)
1/2 organic lemon, with peel
1 slice ginger root (I buy fresh ginger, peel it, slice it and freeze it)
1 tbsp hemp hearts
1 – 2 tsp chia seeds
1/2 to 3/4 cup water
3 or 4 ice cubes

Directions:

Blend well. If you don’t have a high powered blender you may need to take the peel off the lemon.

Add more or less water as required until it becomes a smooth consistency.

Pour in a large mason jar and sip slowly to avoid brain freeze.
