I did get one practical benefit from the 1000+ comments to my post on Adi Da’s death.
Someone mentioned that Adi Da required or strongly suggested his devotees drink green smoothies. I’m always looking for ways to eat better and more efficiently, so I researched green smoothies and they made sense to me. They’re blended drinks using leafy green vegetables and fruit. Simple. This video is all you need to know:
I’ve been drinking green smoothies daily for nine weeks. I lost four pounds and nearly an inch off my waist, My weight was fine. I wasn’t trying to lose weight. My exercise workouts have gotten more intense, too. The green smoothies are replacing foods with higher fat content. There may also be some enzymatic and cellular level stuff going on that makes metabolism more efficient.
A note on the kind of blender used to make smoothies: In the video he uses a VitaMix. They’re around $600. I use a $60 blender that I’ve had for a few years. It works fine. To start, use what you have. Later you might want a high performance blender, such as one of these. I’m sure you can get a superb blender for under $200.
