Meatless Monday-A Little Green Cleanse

Jan 2012

Doesn’t someone who writes a blog called Green With Renvy deserve to start the New Year with a little green cleanse?

I mean, why shouldn’t I be able to start 2012 with great resolutions just like everyone else.  Tomorrow’s the start of the 3 dayer.  I’m bringing along my daughter for support, and have my good girlfriend Janet to thank for the recipe she swears by:

Green Goddess Delight

  • 1 head of romaine, 1 large handful of spinach
  • 1.5 cups of water blend until contents are liquefied
  • add 1.5 ribs of celery, blend
  • 1 pear, 1 apple cut in chunks.  I leave on the skin and only partially core.  Recipe calls for green apple but I use whatever I have.
  • 1/2 lemon with peel removed.  Blend until fully liquified.  Add about 1/2-1 cup of ice if you like it cold.
  • Add a banana if sweeter taste is desired.

Wish us luck-I’ll let you know how it goes.  Tomorrow I’ll be back with my 12 for 2012.
