Raw Foods

It is always best to eat foods in the natural state it was created. When food is cooked and processed it loses vital nutrition and enzymes along the way.A great way to incorperate these raw foods into your daily diet is to make delicious smoothies.I went to a food demo last Saturday and they made the following smoothie.I thought it tasted very good and plan to make it at home this week.Here is the recipie if you would like to try it.

1/2 med Avocado

2 tsp. Spirulina
