Anti Cancer Green Smoothie

While you ponder ideas that can reduce our need for more stuff and simplify our lives (see yesterday's post!), I am collecting all the great ideas that are coming in. Ok - I have gotten about 4 emails is all, but if you'd like your blog link as well as your ideas to be included in the idea generated post on Friday, get those ideas to me as soon as you can! You are all much more creative then I...I need your help! I just know I don't want it to include too many shopping trips!



Anti Cancer Green Smoothie
1 pint broccoli sprouts (Takes about 3 to 4 days for broccoli seeds to sprout - pictured here)
1 pint ripe organic blackberries
1 cup water
Blend all ingredients well. - Enjoy

Nutritional facts: In 1992, scientists found that broccoli sprouts are rich in a compound that provides significant protection against breast cancer and colon cancer. The compound is called sulforaphane glucosinalate. Black raspberries (blackberries) have been shown to reduce the risk of oral, esophageal and colon cancer in animal models, according to the researchers.

Love the new law out!

And the earrings . . . do you make them? Cute.

Good on broccoli sprouts - very good!

What you discuss is the same info I am teaching in North Dakota :) We are hitting the nation with real and healthy information!
Don't be dupped by the chemicals America!!!
So is this the beginning of God's judgment on America? Is interesting!

Dave Ramsey - I have listened to his entire "peace University" seminar - if you can get your hands on it - it is worth listening to. There a couple points I don't agree with but overall I totally recommended his teachings.

However, Dave does not think this "crisis" will affect him . . . hmmm - I disagree! To say it will not is like saying "I am not my brothers keeper".

I agree it may not be as bad as other times in history! 6% unemployment presently as compared to 25% in the early 1930's. So of course we are not as close to that precipice . . . right???

But how do we calculate into the equation 3.1% GDP was taken up by the government in the early 1930's VERSES +20% yes yes +20% GDP of the government TODAY!

In other words our taxes were paying to uphold 3.1% of the population (government workers) as compared to +20% now! Can we say "socialism"???

Is this country the live frog in water with the stove tuned on? (Yes frogs jump out of boiling water BUT when they are brought to a boil they just fall asleep).

Whew - long entry . . . Bless you!

My Mom-n-law makes a smoothie kinda like this one-I'm going to share your recipe with her!

What a great recipe! Gotta try it!
I've been into GREEN smoothies lately. Green smoothies are IN, FULL of green sunshiny life giving nutrition and in liquid form these nutrients have a shuttle directly to your cells. I feel closer to earth and sun when I fill myself with green juice, but I've had a hard time drinking big glasses of green smoothie because the taste can be quite, ... well.... grassy. It's an acquired taste for SURE.

I tried a new green smoothie recipe today and I LOVED it! For new to green drinkers this would be a good start. Give it a try and let me know what you think. (tomorrow I will add my green tea in keeping with the theme! :-)
The `No More Struggle`green smoothie
