You wouldn’t necessarily think to put romaine in a smoothie, but it’s just about as good for you as spinach, watercress, or kale, and I find that we often have a few leaves left over from a salad. This is a perfect way to use them up, and yes, it IS safe to buy it again 😊.
This smoothie is a delicious green blend that focuses on the flavors of mint and ginger, which are very healing for the gut, as they fight nausea, sooth upset stomachs, and are powerful anti-inflammatories. The lime also adds a touch of acid (that is actually alkaline-forming once consumed!) for a balanced and satisfying taste.
With delicious smoothies like this, getting enough servings of greens is a breeze!
Speaking of which, stay tuned for my blog post on Thursday, where I’ll tell you how to live the 80/20 alkaline principle in practice, including just how many serving of greens you really need. (Hint: more than you think!)
Give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
