Detoxing Smoothies

I've embarked on the world of "green" smoothies, recently, because my doctor told me I need to include more fiber in my diet as well as eat more healthy fruits and vegetables on a regular basis.  While I like smoothies as a general rule, I've never been a fan of meal replacement.  I've never found smoothies to satisfy me the way "real food" does.  If I drink a smoothie, I still want to eat--so I wasn't really excited about this prospect.

However, I went into it with an open mind.  I invested in a Ninja (I love saying that!). 

Who knew a Ninja would be so great in the kitchen...seriously, though, it's the best blender I've ever had.  It has individual serving cups and it's quick an easy to clean up (something I hated previously about using a standard blender, is taking it all apart and cleaning it every time).  

I've been drinking smoothies for three weeks now and I'm surprised at how full I feel afterward. I had never made smoothies like this before, incorporating vegetables as well as fruit (and no ice cream or yogurt!).  They taste good (wasn't expecting that either) and my difficulty with finding an acceptable morning meal has been solved (I don't care for most breakfast foods).  PLUS, Cainan has been having one for a snack everyday, as well--he's especially fond of kale and I pack it in there!

My standard smoothie has been a mix of frozen blueberries and cranberries, a big bunch of spinach and/or kale, frozen cherries or strawberries, some flax seed and a little orange juice to smooth it out.  The Ninja pulverizes everything into a sweet, frozen blend and I don't taste the greens or flax.  It's yummy and surprisingly filling.  

Recently, I came across a great picture resource for detoxing the major organs in your body.  I was pleased to see that my regular smoothie covers a lot of it but I'm glad for the information.  I can tweak them a bit if I want to work on a whole body detox (of course, the rest of my diet would need a big change, too).  Here it is for your perusal:

Solving Foot Problems with Vinegar

It turns out that vinegar is a great remedy for many foot ailments, from tired feet to common toenail fungus to dry cracked skin.  I found a great blog that gives simple recipes and instructions for several types of vinegar soaks for the care of your feet.
