Raspberry Bok Choy Smoothie

 Lately I have been craving baby bok choy. It happens about two times per year and I am so thankful that I can find it at exactly the same times that I crave it. I get mine from Trader Joe's. Love the price and love the flavor. The children love it too so that is a major bonus. 
We try to focus on foods that give us the highest health protecting nutrients as possible and cruciferous veggies are on the top of my personal list! Check out this page with medical studies showing the cancer fighting properties of cruciferous veggies.

Here is one of our favorite recipes using an entire package of baby bok choy plus a secret extra cancer fighting powerhouse, cauliflower. Enjoy!

1/2 of a small Haas avocado

Blend all of the ingredients in a high speed blender until creamy and smooth. Enjoy the goodness!

Hi dear Elizabeth

Just to say that I've sent you an e-mail to eyetooth@comcast.net, that I saw in your profile, I think it works...
I tried another one I saw elizabeth@rawlivingandlearning.blogspot.com but didn't work.


God bless you and all your beautiful family

Thank You
