Day 10 - Not Suffering for the Next Book

It's Day 10 of my green smoothie experiment, started accidentally while researching for my next natural health ebook. Every day, while testing green smoothie recipes, I've been drinking about 2 1/2 quarts of green goodness throughout the day. While it does sound a bit nuts (I'm a sucker for research), the changes in my health have felt quite dramatic. But the most dramatic of all so far is a reduction in asthma symptoms.

I'm not the sort of asthmatic that wheezes - very rarely. But my breathing is definitely restricted, something I wandered around with for years before a doctor noticed that, indeed, I had not grown out of my asthma at all. I just wasn't having wheezing attacks.

I've been making green smoothies for years, and I've always noticed improved breathing after having one. But we're talking one 8 ounce glass in a day. Not over 2 quarts! Now, my lungs are opening up and I can take very deep breaths, like the kind they tell you to take during excercise - the kind that usually choke me.

Green smoothies at this quantity forever? I don't know. I'd like to think I can do that, and I have to say getting really good air is a major motivator. But at least for now, it's pretty darned nice not suffering for my art.
