As part of the second follow up on how make somecool green salads I wanted to share with you my favorite organic green smoothie that I make at least two to three times a week. I don't do this everyday but at least three times a week. A couple of years ago after the birth of my last son and already being anemic my iron had become very low even with the help of supplements. And I need something that was going to help me get my iron back up. I am constantly busy with four small boys and having iron helps you to have energy. Iron is needed for your blood to have proper circulation and if it does not have that your blood is not getting enough oxygen to your blood supply which leads to feeling tired or lack of energy.
Even though you can take supplements they are better taken in their raw form or broken down with food added to them to aid with digestion. When you eat real food you body recognizes what it is and is able to transfer that into energy right away. And knowing that iron is broken down by orange-juice because of the acid, I decided to Use Spinach and Orange juice together and my Amazing Grass green super foods supplementation.
I use spinach because spinach is full of iron, orange juice helps to break down the iron a lot quicker in its raw form. Than I added my amazing grass green super food that aids in giving me more energy, detoxifys my body naturally, regulates my metabolism and controls my appetite and balance my body alkalinity levels or our body's natural PH.
