Fruit and veggie Smoothies are a prefect way to start the day or even use as mid day snack. Unfortunately, my stomach doesn't take kindly to most raw food and veggies. So how do I get my daily smoothies? I cook the fruits and veggies lightly and it works very well for me.'

This is one of my regular smoothies. Who can ignore that pretty color, especially with? Valentines Day around the corner. I usually add a bit of mint or basil, some rock salt to add a sour touch and a hint of cumin. There is the natural sweetness from the fruit, sour, earthy spice and a fresh herb.
