In continuing to pay tribute to the colour green, our meal in minutes, you guessed it green!
1. MCC Alkaline Broth
The first is not so much a meal, but a great tea alternative especially if you are looking for an inexpensive warm, immune boosting drink. It’s called MCC Alkaline Broth. During a cleanse this is a must for our patients: it’s a hot liquid with a huge health reward.
How to Make:
In a pot, place three cups of any combination of these power greens: kale, spinach, parsley, celery, zucchini – I personally like 1 cup of each kale, parsley and zucchini. Add to the pot 1.5 cups of water and cook until the mixture reaches a boil. Allow to boil for 3 minutes. Separate the water from the veggies. The water is your drinking broth and your veggies are great for another meal – try adding the veggies to the recipe of the month: eggs from the garden.
2. Green Monster Smoothie
The second meal in minutes is a complete meal. It is our popular Green monster Smoothie. At MCC we love smoothies, especially when we take it up a notch with some nutrition boosters:
How to Make:
Put all the following ingredients in a blender and blend! 1 large orange, peeled and segmented, 1/2 of a large banana, cut into chunks , 6 large strawberries , 2 cups spinach , 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (I use Liberte 0%) , 1 cup ice. Top with Chai seeds for added fibre, protein and nutrition punch!
