Food Combining in Green Smoothies
A popular question that I receive often is: Victoria, isn’t a green smoothie poor food combining?
I respond with the following fragment from my book Green for Life:
I wonder how greens, such as kale, romaine lettuce, spinach, carrot tops, and others got classified as vegetables? Why do we call completely different food groups “vegetables” when they look different and contain different sets of nutrients? A produce manager from a local health food store suggested that the produce section be divided into several different smaller groups of plant foods with specific similarities, for example, roots (carrots, beets, daikon, etc.) flowers (broccoli, cauliflower, artichokes, etc.), and nonsweet fruit (cucumbers, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, etc.). Combining foods with similar nutritional values would not only help shoppers to find necessary ingredients faster but would also help them to become familiar with more plant foods and increase their variety of vegetarian food consumption.

Music Video about Green Smoothies
My long time friend and helper, Aletha Nowitzky, has created a music video, If you have ever called my office, you probably spoke to this kind lady. She is a musician, a dancer, and a composer. Aletha has listened to countless testimonials about the benefits of green smoothies and became inspired to create this fairy tale. Also playing a starring role is Aletha’s daughter, Vanessa Nowitzky.
