I love nettles for mega vitamins and minerals! Very inexpesnive from Mountain Rose Herbs. http://heal-thyself.ning.com/profiles/blogs/nettles-leaf-herbal-infusion

Saute up your spinach and eggs for breakfast. Add spices to your smoothies or fried potatoes. Beet greens are amazing! Add an avocado to your day! Lime adds a whole other zest to a smoothie! Dandelion, oatstraw or kale are very nourishing alternatives too.

Spouts and wheatgrass are easy to enjoy.

Now, I will mention Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) doesn't like raw foods and the raw foodists don't like cooked foods --- so do LISTEN to your body. In general, I'm more inclined to cooked foods during cold weather, and raw/cool foods during warm weather.

Personally, I like nettles infusions and cooked greens and pasture-raised eggs as a morning meal at this time of year. YMMV

Smoothies are super nourishing. Juicing even more bio-available. But there are the 'more fiber' and the 'no fiber' camps...

Some people do not like fats with fruits. Some people insist on fats with veggies. Some like fruits alone. Some find that protein is needed in the morning.

Start SLOWLY on whole food probiotics if they are new to you.

I love cinnamon and cayenne in beet juice with berries.

Share your recipes of the day or your favorite breakfasts, as we go along.

I'd just do 2 cups of juice or smoothie in the morning and share/freeze the rest, if this is all new to you. If you find you have a headache from too much natural detoxification, Epsom salt baths, vit C, selenium and cutting back and slowing down are easier on your body than pushing through.

Mobilizing toxins is WAY different than getting toxins OUT of the body. Slow and easy is kinder to your body. Otherwise, the toxins just redeposit into the gut, organs and brain.

Also, caution if pregnant or nursing, some folks notice detox symptoms from just increasing GREENS in their diet. Toxins go straight to breastmilk and baby.

Another interesting idea, Collard Wraps with Raw Sunflower Pate.

Any large shift in gut microbials, or shift in gut ph, could cause "die-off" - which is basically dumping toxins into blood circulation to redeposit into gut, organs, brain, fetus, breastmilk. So, gradually introducing foods to balance microbials and gut ph is safer.

You don't want to just mobilize/dump toxins, you want to support the body's natural detoxification pathways with whole food nutrients. The detox system is like a funnel, you can dump a lot in but the excess toxins just spill over and circulate around the blood.

The body stores excess toxins in fat and fatty organs for us. And candida binds with toxins to store it out of circulation for us also.

My most simple smoothie recipe is 2 cups of organic, baby spinach + 2 cups of frozen fruit in the blender with water. Smoothies are the easiest way for us to incorporate many greens, as I can vary the greens and vary the fruit! You can add a bit of sweetener, honey or pure maple syrup, as needed. Or use 100% juice or fresh juice for the liquid.

Often, I'll use my herbal infusions as the liquid. And I'll freeze any extra smoothie - flat in a gallon-size Ziploc. This provides a quick frozen 'mixed juice' to toss in the blender in the afternoon as a Pick-Me-Up!

Just add GREEN to breakfast. Bet you feel great! I like greens sauteed in bacon fat, sometimes a salad, sometimes I only have time for nettles infusions in the morning. But, I feel wonderful when I start the day with green juice or green smoothies!

Count me in!  21 days of green breakfasts!

I am in! I need to mix mine up a little. My go to green smoothie which I do probably 5 days a week is baby spinach, kefir, ground flax seed, mixed frozen berries, and protein (egg, greek yogurt or protein powder).  I need to mix up the greens some and try some other combinations.

I've been wanting to do this myself and with my children.  Great time to start.  Count me in!!
