Greens and Fruit

I know greens and fruit should not be mixed, according to the "Food Combining Police", but I mix them daily. I just cannot imagine not; how else would I make a green smoothie?
I put together a massive bowl of greens and topped it with some soaked raisins and a diced Pink Lady apple. The dressing couldn't be easier, the juice of 1 navel orange.

+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for  curve balls in life; they can make one accomplish the unimaginable.

Looks really good! I love mixing greens and fruits, and I find the bloating due to bad food combining is so worth it.
