I just gotta share....

I'm beginning to wonder if everyone is getting tired of hearing about 'green smoothies' from me...I talk about it everywhere...here, at the store, as I shop for my greens, at the video store...I mean....really....EVERYWHERE......LOL. But hey, seriously...if you ask how I'm doing, or what all those greens are for...I'M GONNA TELL YA! :) LOL

I just have to share...I just have to...so, if I'm making you crazy with the 'green-ness' of it all...turn away...LOL.

I have been doing green smoothies at least once a day since the 12th of January. One to two smoothies a day. Nothing CRAZY and RADICAL...just 48 oz. of green smoothie goodness. 

Ok...so, here it is. For years I have had the WORST night vision for EVER! After 16 days of smoothies....my NIGHT VISION IS AMAZING! AMAZING! Oh...sure...don't believe me...I would have a hard time believing it myself...if someone told me that...I mean....my night vision wasn't just 'bad'...but driving in the evening, with oncoming traffic's headlights in my face...it actually HURT...it was PAINFUL...Ok...so...just know that....it was PAINFUL! I had to look to the side of the road, and really use my peripheral vision to 'see' what was going on. And as cars would pass, with their lights on, IT STILL HURT from the peripheral...no joke. And two nights ago...I was driving...and it was GONE! I couldn't believe it! I started LOOKING INTO the lights to see what was up, WHAT THE HECK!?! And it was GONE!

I was ASTONISHED! I came home, gathered the WHOLE FAMILY AROUND in the living room...and they KNOW KNOW KNOW how much pain I'm in driving at night...and I told them it was GONE!...it was SO AMAZING! 

I shared that with my girl friend,  BusyMom and she told me that her prescription glasses were becoming too strong! LOL...I WOULDN'T HAVE BELIEVED HER IF I HADN'T EXPERIENCED MY OWN VISION RESTORATION! LOL...that's why I hesitated to share it here....LOL...! 

I expected some kind of vision improvement... HOWEVER, NOT in 16 days! I'm just sayin'. 

Believe me or not....LOL....it just makes me giggle! (*she says as she sips her green smoothie)

Karla, what is it about the "green" that makes the difference? Did you hear about this somewhere or something? Please share more (I haven't seen anything or read anything about it from you til now, so sorry if I missed something!). :)

You can catch up on my other blogs...Start with "My new 'thing'...then read...My BEFORE Day (Continued from "My new 'thing'", Part II....then read...."My AFTER Day (Continued from "My new 'thing'") Part III....then read "Day 5 of Smoothie Invasion (Occupation?)....then...Yay! I went SHOPPING! :) then.....well, you get the point...it'll take you to this latest blog of mine...and in them, several of them it tells you why I started...and so on and so forth. I have some links to a blog from a friend of mine, and links to Green Smoothie Girl . com and just a bit about me. I have been doing a lot of researching and such...and to answer your question...YES! The greens and such make ALL THE DIFFERENCE! Between the Vitamin A, the carotenoids, well, really just the WHOLE AMAZING GROUP of nutrients WE AREN'T NORMALLY GETTING...are you? :) Check it out...let me know what you think...or if you have more questions...message me again, and maybe we can 'chat'. :) Have fun! :) Fasten your seat belt...it's FUN and EXCITING! :)

WOW, ASB! That is awesome and I do believe you. Have you changed anything else in your eating or just added the smoothies? Have you lost weight? I love your enthusiasm! I really want to try a green smoothie! Maybe today I will get all the stuff! I have a magic bullet blender. I wonder if that would work? I will let ya know if I make one. My friend bought a smoothie at Whole foods yesterday and it was Kale, ginger and lemon... WOW ~ It was so good! That place is too rich for my blood so I will have to make my own! Thanks for posting!

Is this the green smothie that Dr. Oz has talked about? I'm like Caroline, as I haven't heard anything about this green smoothie any where else.

Susie Daphne Oz. (daughter of Dr. Oz), who is on "the chew" made a green smoothie last month on the chew. there shows can be watched on CBS.

How about just posting your basic recipe for those of us who are visually challenged. We don't review a lot of visual material very easily. I would very much appreciate your Green Smoothie recipe. Thank you. Way to go!
