Our good friend, Leigh Anthony with UAMS East in Lake Village, asked if I’d lead a class on Drink Your Veggies. Of course I said yes. She asked me a couple of months ago and the time passed quickly.
Leigh coordinated all the details and I showed up tonight at Chicot Memorial Medical Center’s classroom with my blenders and blended.
We made three green smoothies and one pink smoothie for 18 people and everyone in the class was great at giving each one a chance.
We used spinach, collards, red swiss chard, kale, bananas, beets, apples, fresh ginger, sprouted raw sunflower seeds, carrots, frozen blueberries and frozen strawberries. We easily drank more than five servings of vegetables.
Thank you to everyone who attended and being open to incorporating more vegetables and fruits in your diets.
