Coconut Green Smoothie Recipe

For lunch I made Coconut Green Smoothies.  Here is the recipe:

In blender, use coconut water and coconut meat to blend together and make a coconut milk.  Add water as needed.
In juicer, juice a bunch of cilantro, a cucumber, a lime, and two bunches of celery.
Combine the juice with the coconut milk in the blender and serve.

The coconut green smoothie was grainy because of the coconut.  Travis and I both had a glass for lunch.  It had lot's of good healthy ingredients.  It was pretty good, but not as good as our regular green smoothie.  It would have been better with young coconuts, but I had to use the old coconuts that they sell at Walmart.  The young coconuts here in the states have been dipped in formaldehyde and are not healthy to eat.  But if you can get them fresh in the tropics...they are awesome.

For lunch we also had apples, grapes, clementine oranges, and raw cashew butter.

I didn't get to walk this morning because I was not feeling well in the morning.  At 9:30 I had a flute lesson.    My exercise today was scrubbing the kitchen floor on my hands and knees with water and a scrub brush.  This method works great for cleaning the little grooves in the white tiles.

My lesson in Natural Living today was a pediatrics supplement.  Tonsils are the sentinels of the lymphatic system.  The lymphatic system is the body's sewage system.  When the sewage system is overloaded the sentinels become sore and painful.  The body is asking for time to catch up with the overload.

For supper I had raw cheese, tabouli, cucumber, a few sprouts, almonds, and a few cocoa covered almonds.

The non-raw foods I had today were herb tea and cocoa covered almonds.

Happy day.  The box arrived today from Nuts on Line.  It contained 5 organic pounds each of sunflower seeds, mung beans for sprouting, walnuts, cashews, currents, sesame seeds, dates, and sultanas.  And one pound of pink Himalayan sea salt.  Now I have everything I need to make goody balls.

The sprouts are doing great.  This is the second batch this week of a mixed seed.
A free people must be able to grow and produce their own food.

I am having to reassess how busy I can get and still live the simple, natural life.  More to come on this.

To health and happiness.
