Get Your Greens With Blended Salads
By: Mark Idzik

One of the many questions I receive is along the lines of... "it's hard for me to get more greens in my diet, how can I do it?"

The short answer is, it couldn't be easier... if you want to. Making your salad the main dish for dinner is a great start... and then start experimenting with different greens. There's an abundance of green leafy vegetables that you can make into dozens of salads, burritos, wraps and many more.

Here's a favorite that's quick, easy and a great way to increase greens in your diet.

Blended Salad

One of the benefits of blended salads is that you can get a large amount of greens into a meal.. and you can be creative with what you add to the mix. Here's one of my favorite recipes:

(serves 1-2 ... adjust accordingly)

  • 3-4 Kale leaves
  • 5-6 Romaine Lettuce leaves
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1/4-1/2 Cucumber
  • 2-3 Green Onions
  • Handful of fresh Cilantro
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • Handful Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 Red Pepper
  • Sprouts (alfalfa, brocolli, etc)
  • Sprouted Pumkin Seeds
Add all ingredients except green onions, red peppers, sun dried tomatoes and avocado into a blender or food processor and blend until you get a smooth consistency. I recommend adding a little at a time and saving the sun dried tomatoes until the end and blend partially to leave small chunks. Top with chopped avocado, green onions, pumpkin seeds, and sprouts and you have a super green meal! You can be creative and make any combination you'd like... toppings, different greens, vegetables, seeds... make a different one every time and have fun!

Enjoy!
