We all know that we should eat more greens, but rarely do any of us eat enough greens like kale and spinach... And forget about enjoying them!

From this smoothie, the body can absorb the essential nutrients quickly and easily. And anyone can prepare these delicious smoothies in their own kitchen with their own choice of ingredients! Green smoothies are an excellent way for people to gain more control of their own health.

The BEST Cranberry Relish EVER!

My small family gathers in Vermont every year for Thanksgiving. Because we're a small bunch, we often invite friends and holiday orphans to join us in giving thanks over a beautiful meal. A regular at our table is my mother's wonderful friend Glenda (picture Glinda the good witch and you'll get an idea as to just how wonderful she truly is).

We typically make a cranberry relish every year, even before I went raw. Often we've used a recipe from Eating Well Magazine. But this year, hold onto your hats, things CHANGED! Enter Glenda... You were wondering when she would make an appearance in my Thanksgiving tale. She ever so gently asked whether I would be open to trying her recipe for cranberry relish this year. Well, of course! So we did... Even Bob, our 86-year-old Thanksgiving orphan, asked to take some home with him at the end of the night. When does that ever happen with cranberry relish?!?!

Here it is...

Cranberry Relish
- 1 bag raw, organic, whole cranberries
- 1 whole orange, cut off ends and quarter the orange (rind on)
- 1/2 a pineapple, cored and sliced

Process ingredients in a food processor, well. Transfer to a bowl. Add the seeds from one pomegranate. Add agave or maple syrup to taste if you like your relish sweeter.

Enjoy! Happy holidays.
