Additionally, these powerful green vegetables are loaded with nutrients and trace elements the active or sedentary body, needs. Furthermore, raw greens will help build muscle and not add unwanted weight. There is no need to try to count calories.

I didn’t find this food to be a sweet and delicious at first. But as my sense of taste improved I found it to be delicious and flavorful. Anyone can add their own special vegetables to this blend.
A long time ago, I became tired of all that chewing and found some help. Now I run them through the vegetable chopping machine (blender or food chopper.) Also, I don’t process them into a slurry-like liquid or into a smoothie, because I like to chew them enough to slow the progress. This promotes the natural digestive enzymes that need to be added before they enter my stomach. Eat them spoonful by spoonful and chew well before swallowing.

Any drastic change in diet needs approached carefully. Start this eating change gently. As a young man I helped farmers maintain farm animals. The cows ate dry hay all winter; in the spring we had to let them have a little bit of green grass each day until their digestive track relearned how to digest the green grass.
