Day 5 of 7-day GSC

Here is another Green Smoothie recipe from the Joy for Life Retreat that you may want to try!

Green Glory GS
Yield: 1 quart

2 cups Chard, rib removed
1/4 fresh pineapple (approximately 1 cup)
1 cup strawberries, frozen or fresh
1 banana, peeled
2 cups water
  • In a blender, mix together until thick and creamy
  • My GS was a bit frothy, so I added about 1/4 cup frozen pears for soluble fibre

  • Chard can provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support
  • Chard contains a flavonoid called syringic acid that is receiving attention in recent research for its blood sugar regulating properties

Follow Up:
  • This is Day 5 - and my weight is down another pound. I have lots of energy and am feeling really good.
