You Make Me a Better Person Smoothie


Have I mentioned how much fun I had on my trip to Chicago?  If you missed it, check out the Kitchari recipe and my other post (ahem…do I have to tell you there is a 30% coupon code in that post that expires on Sunday).  It was a blast at the Kenmore Blogger Summit and I really learned a lot and there was plenty of tasty food too.

I love green smoothies and this one was really good.  It had lots of new ingredients in it that makes it extremely healthy.  I wish I could remember all the details about each ingredient, but I don’t…just trust me.  However, one that that I already knew that was mentioned was that if you are looking to make a small change to organic produce, start with your berries.  They hold a lot of the pesticides in and produce with a peel keeps a lot of stuff out (think banana, pineapple, orange, apple, etc) as long as you peel it.

    This recipe is a bit off the shore but definitely seems very interesting. I’ll try it making at home soon.
