30 Bananas a Day!

Ok, so I'm sure this is gonna sound like I'm super lazy but in truth I'm so busy right now between school and taking care of my baby that radically changing my SAD to 811rv almost overnight has been challenging. Eating the fruit has been easy, its getting in enough greens every day that's been hard. I feel like I'm either juicing, blending, mixing, or cleaning it all up atleast a good portion of my day and need recommendations for less work having to go into all the prep and clean-up for my greens...

I know its completely pasturized but would bottled "green smoothies" be a decent alternative or am I gonna lose too many nutrients that its not even worth it...I wanna make sure I don't. Cause any deficiencies since I am feeding myself and my breastfeeding 7 month old.

I really appreciate you help!

I made a simple salsa today to eat with lettuce but eating them both by themselves was much more enjoyable. +1 on this one! :)
Great advice for the fruits Fruit FTW. I feel confident with my fruit intake I just know I'm supposed to eat like 1-2 pounds of leafy greens a day and at first I was trying to eat a 1 pound salad but it literally took an hour and a half just to eat it, and to try to make several smoothies throughout the day in my standard blender takes at least a half hour each plus clean up, plus half the time I'm not home all day so I end up not getting in enough leafy greens.
How are you all getting in the leafy greens with busy schedules?

One of the quickest ways to eat greens is a "wrap" Take a chunk of something like banana, date, avocado, tomato, etc and wrap it in a few pieces of lettuce really tight... It ends up being about 4 bites worth of food, total, and you get maybe 5 of those out of a head of lettuce. You can also do the "wrap" with nothing in it, but many people don't like plain lettuce.

 

also, green smoothies! I just make banana smoothies, but you can easily add 1/2 lb at least to a meal worth of bananas and that takes almost no time at all.

Alycia: is the green juice pasteurized? Is it a particular brand? How long does it last...like if I bought several at a time?

Hannah: the wrap idea is great. I'll definitely try that.

Do you all use a Vitamix for making your smoothies?
i do, but any blender will do as long as it's not realllly bad.
I have been known to eat the pre-washed lettuces right out of the bag by the bag. (Ideally, I wash even the pre-washed lettuce before eating them, but sometimes you're on the go so . . . . ) If you're really pressed for time, buy the pre-washed lettuces and make big salads. Salads, lettuce wraps and smoothies are all much better options than the pasteurized juices.
