What is The Garden?
- The Garden
- The Garden is a metaphor for growth. Here, we plant the seeds to grow, and as we cultivate our own garden, we also remove the weeds that negatively effect our garden by tearing them out at the root, not just clipping off what appears at the surface. We grow by taking care of our problems at the root, not taking away the symptoms. And with time, we can overcome anything.
I welcome any questions you may have. Every Sunday, I will do a "Question of the Week", in which I will post and answer one or two questions from the emails I have received. Please submit your emails for this with Monday through Thursday.
Of course, you can email me at any time, but please note that due to the large amount of emails received, I may not be able to respond. I will try to get to as many as possible, and there may be a delay. If I don't answer, feel free to email me again. Thank you for your understanding!

6- medium strawberries
1-kiwi (not the skin)
Small handful of baby greens (leafy greens!)
Small handful of spinach
Small handful fresh kale greens
1/2 to 1 tblspn ground flax seed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1-2 splenda (optional.. if it's too bitter for you, try splenda!)
Optional- small handful of frozen blueberries
Blend well, for 1-2 minutes until smooth. Add a handful of ice, blend until smooth again, and drink up!
It's packed with nutrients and anti-oxidants, but one thing to be careful of.... Go slow until you see how your body digests them. There's lots of fiber, and it will prompt you to move your bowels, which is good. You can increase to two a day after your body adjusts.
That's it! Hope you enjoy them!
