SO whats a GREEN MO you ask? It is this.
A green moustache.
The type that is left on the top of my baby girls lips as they sip away at some fruit and veggie smoothies packed with super duper green nutrients from the green veggies like spinach and cucumber that was whizzed to a liquid and served in a glass.
Its a concept. Drink Your Greens.
My two year old isn't going to sit down and eat a whole bowl of salad full of spinach, watercress and lettuce. Firstly, she doesn't have the ability to chew it to the point it needs to to release the nutrients it contains, secondly, she is two she cant sit still for one minute let alone the 20 or so she would need to eat it all. Thirdly, she doesn't like it, she doesn't want it. Sure she might pick up a leaf here and there and eat it but not enough to do the job I need it to. BUT she had it all today. it tasted like a banana & pear smoothie and was finished and the glass was licked clean. Did your child have all the "leafy greens" that everyone suggests they should be having? Did they eat all their veggies? Did you grate zucchini into your spaghetti sauce and then cook all the nutrients out of it?Were you deceptively delicious??
Its a symbol of raw food & the power it has to heal and protect the body.
Like I said in my wellness warrior post. I am bursting my own bubble. So what does that mean? Literally, I started searching for things that I would do AS IF I had cancer. Sounds morbid I know. But what I found was amazing. There is a whole movement of people that have rejected conventional medicine and have kept themselves alive. Given a time frame and have laughed in its face. Not just a couple of them... A whole world of them! What did they do?... A lot went to a raw food diet. A lot cut out meat and dairy and all the foods that many believe we SHOULD NOT BE EATING. I will let you know in time and as I learn. But they changed their life so drastically because that IS WHAT MADE THEM SICK. They also rejected a lot of conventional medicine. What we are doing today is what they WERE doing. So I am going to do it now. I want to do what they are doing. I am not going to wait for the push into it when a doctor tells me I'm dying. Why should I?
It is a revolution. It is a normal person like you taking control & choosing their life & their families life.
It will start with an image. Then a blog. Then who knows... In the coming weeks I will set up a new blog for this venture where I will show you in words, pictures and videos how to incorporate green smoothie goodness into your kids lives, and your own. As well as smoothies, we will look at raw foods, soups, and super foods that we hear about but don't know what to do with. I will find it and do it and show you it. Up to you what you then do with it? I completely and utterly disagree with the diet that children have at the moment. There is not one thing in a food court or in a restaurant kids menu that I want my kids to have. Nuggets, Pizza, Battered Fish, Sausages...all with chips? No thank you. Lets get educated, lets educate our kids.
Its my version of McDonald's arches. I want my kids to be addicted to THIS!
McDonald's is not food. Just by the way.
So I will be separating The Green Mo Co. and this blog due to my possible need to post on the strange UFO sightings that have been seen lately, which relates just to me and not to the Nazi food side of me. HEHEHE
