Facebook The Power of the Green Smoothie Even though being a mom often leaves us short on extra time, every now and then we’ve got to take a moment and make sure we are also taking care of ourselves. I recently had such a moment. I was a couple months out from birthing my second baby, was starting to feel “normal” again, but still in “I-deserve-comfort-food” mode – ie – lots of buttered biscuits, cheese and ice cream. I was definitely not getting enough fruits and vegetables and my diet was certainly not helping my energy level! (or helping me get rid of the extra baby weight!) The Green Smoothie! What’s a green smoothie? Here’s my basic Green Smoothie recipe. Ingredients: 2 generous handfuls of spinach or green leafy vegetable of your choice1 banana sliced2 cups of frozen fruit (I used 1 cup frozen green grapes and 1 cup of frozen peaches for this recipe; berries and cherries also taste great in green smoothies)1/2 – 3/4 cups of water The great thing about this smoothie recipe is you can easily keep the ingredients on hand.

Shelf Life of Water Proper storage is important if you're bottling your own water. If you store tap water in empty cartons or jugs from milk or fruit juice, it can spoil quickly because the milk and juice is hard to wash out. Bottles that aren't completely clean provide a breeding ground for bacteria, and cardboard cartons leak easily because they are not intended for long-term storage. Glass bottles can break easily and may contain unsafe amounts of lead. The American Red Cross recommends using 2-liter plastic soda bottles to store tap water. Wash the bottles well with soap, and rinse them with a solution of one quart water and 1 tsp. non-scented chlorine bleach.
