February 2011 Digest of Posts

There is exciting news to share.  First, Los Angeles officially gained another raw vegan restaurant yesterday, and looking forward to September, there's an upcoming festival that will take place in beautiful Oregon sponsored by Mountain Rose Herbs.

This month our featured herb of the month is Lemon Verbena.  There will be a link to a blog post and giveaway offer in next week's newsletter.

I predict that March is going to be an exciting month.  I don't know exactly why I feel this way, but I do.  I hope it's off to a great start for you and with all the potential excitement yet to unfold, having a nourishing green drink is a great way to power up.

Green Power Drink  

This healthy, nutrient-rich drink is one way to get your daily intake of greens and it tastes great. This vivid green super food drink is a blend of some of the most potent greens; sweetened with banana.

1 banana [peeled and chopped]
1 large kale leaf [de-stemmed and roughly tore or chopped]
1 cup cold pressed green tea
1 tablespoon spirulina
1 tablespoon wheatgrass juice powder
1 tablespoon barley

Place the banana, kale, green tea, spirulina, wheatgrass and barley powder in the blender and blend until smooth.

If you don't have green tea you could fall back on basic filtered water, nut or seed milk.

Serves 1 - 2
