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 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.
