3 organic apples

1 stick celery

1 cup spinach leaves or kale

1 inch ginger root

1/2 fennel bulb

1/2 cup parsley

1/2 cucumber

1 tablespoon tocotrienols (vitamin E derivatives)

1 tablespoon of nutrient-mineral powder (such as Nature’s First Food)

1 teaspoon goat’s whey

1 teaspoon flaxseed oil

About 6 nuts (macadamias are Donna’s favorite)

Pass the first seven ingredients through a juicer. Pour into a blender and add the remaining ingredients. Blend, taking care to leave the nuts chunky enough to chew them.
