I recall hearing it’s important to switch up the greens you’re using in green smoothies regularly. I have been using organic baby spinach pretty much nonstop for the past month. I can’t think of anything else I could stomach in a smoothie. Dandelion’s too bitter, mustard greens would taste like a spicy mustard smoothie (gross)...I haven’t tried collards but while I could handle using them as a wrap, I think they might be too bitter for smoothies. My blender isn’t powerful enough for kale. I’m not sure if it could handle chard, that’s on my list to try.
Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions for mild greens? Obviously I could use plain lettuces but that just seems kinda pointless…it’s like crunchy water basically, isn’t it? I like using spinach cause I know it has alot of nutrients. I did put a small head of romaine lettuce in the other day…even THAT came up a bit bitter to me beneath the fruit.
And honestly, why do we need to switch them up? I mean if the ones we ARE eating are nutritious, what’s the problem?
