Market is Open for Ordering!


Hello Folks.
Ready for the rough weather predicted for us?
It should be better by the time your orders come to you on Tuesday, Jan 29th. Twenty ninth? Where in the world did the whole month go?
Did you ever fool that way? ….Like a whole month slipped past you and you don’t know how?
We have been very busy here at Putney Farm. Since I am feeling so great (Thank you Lord!) I now have to do some serious cleaning and organizing to catch us up.

GREEN SMOOTHIES
“Incorporating Green Smoothies in your diet is an easy, delicious way to boost up your health and a great way to stay fueled through out the day. And because they are high in fiber, your body stays regular (if you know what I mean). Green smoothies are known to resolve a lot of digestive problems. And with a proper diet, can help you stay lean.

Note: Green Smoothies are generally a mix of 60% ripe fruit and 40% organic greens" http://www.oatmealinmybowl.com/the-kitchen/30-delicious-green-smoothie-recipes/

We have been doing those “Green Smoothies” here at the Putney house, and both of us are feeling a lot lighter, mentally, spiritually, and physically. The whole thing is based on the fact that we simply cannot pack in enough greens, nor chew them well enough to get them properly digested by just having salads, etc, so to speed things up, just put in a blender 1/3 fruit, 2/3 raw greens, like spinach, beet tops, chard, etc, and water. I use banannas, strawberries, blueberries, apples, strawberries. The drink turns out tasting like a fruit smoothie, and you turn out healthier for having “eaten” lots of fresh, raw (organic of course) greens. Just “Google” Green Smoothies OR HERE’S A LINK to get you started.
Many of the greens now being offered on Clemson.locallygrown.net are perfect for this healthy and delicious drink!
So, hop on board and get yourself some of the freshest greens available anywhere right here on Upstate Locally Grown and give em a whirl for a taste treat and a health boost!
