Either way, I am still learning.
My Green Juice is not yet green, you see. However, the experimentation is still fun and "pretty" in its own way. Despite my encouragement, my juice asked for an accessory. A beautiful glass straw to help with her self-esteem.
Today's Not-Quite-Green Juice included the following ingredients: 3 carrots, 1 cucumber, 2 kale leaves, 1 apple, 2 stalks of celery, and juice from 1/2 a lemon (the lemon juice makes all the difference!).
My Smoothie faired a little better. But then again, she was assisted by The Voracious Vegan's almond milk recipe. And everyone knows that a little help from a friend can do amazing things.
Other ingredients included: organic blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, 1 banana, kale, and a tablespoon of flaxseed for some additional omega-3s.
Though they looked a little "out-of-the-ordinary," both the Juice and the Smoothie were glorious in their own ways and contributed to making me feel better...and better still...So, there was really no reason to be hard on themselves. I told them that their uniqueness was a gift and that they should focus on their individual and combined successes (as they scientifically enhanced my health and longevity). That is where the art is!
