My film is going GREAT! All my athletes have taken their baseline tests and have now started their 6-week green smoothie regime. I personally make them smoothies 3 times a week ( Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and so far the feedback is very positive. If you’d like to follow along and drink smoothies with us, I’ll be posting the recipes on our FaceBook page ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/Powered-By-Green-Smoothies-feature-film/145010142342571 ). Like the page to get updates.
Here are the first three recipes:
POWERED BY GREEN SMOOTHIE #1: Green kale, red grapes, pineapple, banana, cantaloupe, water
POWERED BY GREEN SMOOTHIE # 2: Purple kale, green kale, peaches, cantaloupe, pears, bananas, and water.
POWERED BY GREEN SMOOTHIE #3: Kale, spinach, mango, plum, nectarine, banana, water!
Over and out!
My mother, sister, and I are currently in Sweden conducting a green smoothie retreat. We have found THE MOST A-M-A-Z-I-N-G place to soak up the sun, detox, and relax in nature. If you missed out this year, don’t worry, we’ll be coming back again in 2014.
Retreat participants enjoy our best smoothie recipes. Together we drink sweet smoothies, savory soups, and eat delicious popsicles!
When we’re not drinking smoothies or learning about health, we get to hang with the local residents.
I am thrilled to announce that a few ago days my kickstarter project (Powered by Green Smoothies) was successfully funded! This means my experiment WILL happen, and the movie WILL be made. I would like to officially thank all of my backers (you know who you are) for supporting me as well as the entire healthy food movement. Our efforts together are making a powerful difference in this world! Stay tuned for regular updates about my upcoming film.
You asked, I did. Here for your viewing pleasure is a brief introduction to the athletes who will be partaking in my experiment (http://kck.st/11g6hL5)! I worked very hard to select these individuals and think that on top of their athleticism, they have SO MUCH MORE to contribute to this project. Won’t you please help me welcome to the stage (not an actual stage) Alex, Joanne, Laura, Kymmi, Jace, Jamie, Jade, and Michael!
This kickstarter project will only run for 10 more days, so please keep sharing it (http://kck.st/11g6hL5) on facebook, twitter, email, etc. Let’s blow up the internet together for this healthy cause!
If you run, hike, swim, snowboard, cycle, attend crossfit, or actively engage in any other sports, then you’re probably aware that your body requires extra nutritional supplementation in order to function properly. Simply put, athletes need more nutrients than less-active people. They demand more from their bodies and thus must compensate with the right nutrients to keep up performance and recovery. Unfortunately, today’s athletes have been duped into believing that in order to maintain proper health, they must consume a wide range of animal products, supplements, and power gels. I think this is one of the biggest misconceptions in the field of sports and fitness. In this post, I am not interested in arguing whether athletes should be vegans or not. I simply want to challenge the traditional approach and illustrate that the nutritional needs of an athlete can be met through natural means. I believe all athletes can benefit by consuming more fresh, organic greens and fruits in a blended concoction commonly referred to as a “green smoothie.”

HUGE THINGS ARE COMING!!!!! I’m thrilled to announce my latest project called: “Powered By Green Smoothies.” In a nutshell, I’m shooting a full length documentary about how endurance athletes are affected by regular green smoothie intake. I’m going to put half a dozen hardcore athletes on a smoothie challenge and film the whole shebang. This project has already taken flight and I am now raising funds to complete and distribute it. If you feel like contributing to a healthy cause, this is it! Every dollar helps make this movie a reality. If you cannot help with $, but would like to contribute, I need help spreading the word about my endeavor. I would be thrilled if you shared the link below on your facebook, blogged about it, told your friends, etc.
