Five Green Recipes To Make Your Heart Sing

If there is any such thing as a cleanse expert, i might have to say i'm one.  Now, i'm not trying to puff my own feathers, but if you haven't noticed i lead one of these or participate in one just about every month.  AND every time i lead a cleanse i deal with between 25 to 100 people who have individual situations arise that i need to find answers for.  This time we're cleansing 125!... with 20 names on the wait list!  Holy Smokes!  Looks like Beaming is going to have a bright future!

Since a whole week has gone by since i posted about my amaze-ball trip to palm springs (yes i'm shamlessly gloating), there is a lot of green chat we need to catch up on.  This juice-pressing, green-smoothie blending queen is constantly trying to stir up yummy new recipes to keep Beamers and Grateful Lifers inspired.  I'm definitely keeping the market demand going for exotic super fruits and super foods, plant based protein powders and supplements, and have sipped more coconuts than the Cocoa Puffs Koo Koo Bird could handle.  It's a rough life.  :)

Without droning on and on, i'll keep my green chatter brief and simply supply you with the best of the best recipes from this past week.  Every one of these recipes is a heavenly, heart healthy, energy boosting tonic that you are sure to enjoy!
