Some of those smoothies actually sound pretty good...that's not natural for me to think. I do, however, enjoy something called Barley Life. It looks and smells like pond scum, but it's instant energy. Found your blog from Something She Wrote. I'm going to go read some more.

Wow, that's so much green! :) I'll have to pass your concoctions on to my best friend; she'll dig 'em.

Hello! Just found your blog and am enjoying it. I have been going raw for a whole week now (not 100% at all, but major improvement). Many of my reasons are the same as yours, and I'm loving being on this journey. My favorite green smoothie has spinach - seems to have the least strong taste. I'm curious about the taste of the parsley in your smoothies... might have to try that! A bit nervous though...
Anyway, thanks for the recipes, and I'll keep checking back. Hope you're doing well!
