After 6 years of experimenting with % of raw foods in my diet, it's taken me a few years to be able to have a morning smoothie. I used to have a few sugar-related issues that made it hard for me to have smoothies and not get light-headed. So now I'm able to eat AND ENJOY my morning smoothie. I love my morning smoothies. Something awesome happens when you can be so grateful for the food that you eat. I totally love it, feel fed, nourished and enlivened/energized. Today's smoothie was a bit of an experiment. It is often the case that I throw stuff together and make some yummy things - sometimes things don't work but it's hard to really mess up a raw food meal. (I did it once though with too much hot pepper! Accidents happen.) Anyway, this morning I used what was laying around and I'd love to encourage you to start experimenting. Here goes: 4 ripe bananas 1 lemon, peeled and de-seeded 2 T raw tahini 2 medium tomatoes 3 cups water splash of agave Blend in the VitaMix - pour into 4 glasses and enjoy. This was a total experiment and I was pleasantly surprised with the results. So was Matt. It's a less sweet tasting smoothie than usual and it was a nice change this morning.
