I love making big, sweet, hearty green smoothies in the morning, and
this is what I had this morning. I’m pretty sure I put just about
everything I had in it, hence the name “(everything but the) Kitchen
My blender is small and weak, poor thing (but has lasted forever), so I
blend my greens first. If you don’t have a VitaMix or other high powered
blender, this might work better for you, too. They get pretty smooth if
I process them for a minute or two.
I also used Manitoba Harvest Hemp Pro 50, 50% Protein Powder, 32-Ounce which is my favorite hemp powder. Manitoba Harvest leaves all the good omega-3s intact.
Just blend everything well until smooth and serve.

Here’s a short Meal Plan video, if you want to know more about how it works. About 1,000 people have tried the meal plans so far and the feedback has been great. I’ve heard from people who’ve greatly lowered their dosage of insulin, moms who want some help staying organized on raw, a grandma who has lost almost 30 pounds. I’m really pleased they seem to help people and be a useful tool for staying on a raw lifestyle.
