Green Gazpacho Smoothie

I adapted this smoothie from Dr. Mark Hyman’s Green Breakfast Smoothie.  I am always trying to find ways to eat more veggies throughout my day.  Since I always start my day with a hardy breakfast, I find this nutrient dense, whole food power smoothie is great for lunch on those days when I am on the go and in the car most of the day.  I find it filling and it stays with me until dinner time.

In a blender add:

12 ounces water

2 handfuls spinach

1 handful cilantro

1 handful parsley

3 inches of a cucumber partially peeled

1 avocado

½-1 teaspoon salt

½ of a lemon or lime

Blend until smooth

Enjoy!
