Introduction

 

While visiting a girlfriend in the United Kingdom last year, I made a green smoothie for her 18-month-old daughter. Little Alice was fascinated by the whirring of the blender and the evolving bright green liquid. I placed a small cup in her willing hands, and as she tasted the smooth green liquid for the very first time, she relished it—and so did much of her face.

I wasn’t lucky enough to discover green smoothies at 18 months of age, but I believe I reached a high point in my digestively challenged journey at 33 years. In seeking improved health and well-being, I read many books, researched online, visited health professionals, experimented with different ways of eating, and experienced many “aha!” moments along the way. I removed wheat and dairy from my diet, and ultimately all gluten-containing foods, got rid of coffee, reduced the amount of sugar, returned to a vegetarian diet, discovered raw foods, and finally came upon green smoothies!

I lead a busy life as a full-time physiotherapist along with running two other home-based businesses, writing, and being a wife to my best friend, Ben. People ask me where I get my energy and I believe it’s partly attitude, as I am a persistent, committed, and optimistic person. I also eat a clean, unprocessed diet. I don’t consume foods that disagree with me, I eat a high proportion of raw plant-based foods, and I drink a green smoothie every morning without fail. Whether I am up early or late, traveling or at home, a green smoothie is a must for me as it is for my husband. Just 16 ounces or 2 cups (500 mL) sees me through to lunchtime with ease, with no blood sugar dips. It’s easy to digest in the morning and so very convenient. In 3 to 4 minutes I have a smoothie prepped and made, and the blender cleaned, and if I am in a hurry, the smoothie is easy to transport to work in a glass jar.

In 2007 I built a website devoted to green smoothies. What started as an opportunity to share what I had learned, and to post some of my favorite recipes and photos, became a much bigger deal, with thousands of hits and wonderfully supportive feedback from people ranging from novices to experienced green smoothie drinkers. Now I am thrilled and so very grateful to turn my passion and hobby into The Green Smoothie Bible, which contains everything you need to know about green smoothies, including what they are, how they benefit your body, and, of course, all the recipes you need to get going.

Warm and green regards,
Kristine Miles
