Dankjewel voor deze post, altijd fijn om wat extra tips te krijgen. En ik ben sinds deze week ook aan de green smoothies begonnen en begin al verslaafd te raken
Heb je mijn mailtje nog ontvangen?
You’re welcome! Ik zal even mijn mail doorspitten, hij zal vast wel aangekomen zijn maar i’m swamped! x
I drink a green smoothie multiple times per week. Only thing is: I only use spinach. I tried kale once, but it remained chewy, whereas spinach gives a smoother result… How is that with romaine lettuce for example? And where did you buy it? (It’s bindsla in Dutch, right?) I usually throw in some banana, and I love adding the frozen fruits from Albert Heijn! Or with coconut milk. Or the one you came up with some time ago, with cacao and coffee mocha! I love it! I usually also add some chia seed or flax seed.
I take a salad with me about once a week, I think… I could probably do that more often.
Hoi Iris, romaine = romana or romeinse sla in NL en ja, die is ook veel subtieler en blend gemakkelijk!
Ok tnx wat werkt nog meer goed ?en waar koop je romeinse sla?
ik vind romeinse sla eigenlijk overal! natuurwinkel, markt, bio markt, zelfs AH . alle soorten bladgroente die een niet al te sterke smaak hebben, dus milde sla en andijvie bv ook. en spinazie!
Ik vind je blog echt super, kijk er al een tijdje elke dag op Fijn artikel ook!
Thank goodness I’ve already learned to love greens! I’ve never tried a green smoothie because I only have a weak hand blender. That little fella is already struggling with frozen fruit, so I doubt it can handle leafy greens. Do you think a Magic Bullet can make greens smoothies? I’d love to give it a try.
I really like salads and have one at least 3-4 times a week. Could increase that. I usually take the easy route and buy a bag of mixed greens. My favorites are romaine, spinach, rocket, lamb’s lettuce (Feldsalat), endive. I’ve never tried raw kale, it’s almost impossible to find it around here.
from what I understand green bullets are quite powerful, so yes!
I love greens! If I don’t have spinach every day, I feel weird. I used to not eat as many vegetables or greens but when they are fresh and prepared well (and for me, organic), they taste awesome. Green smoothies are great too – I love drinking them in the mornings so I get more greens down. I love kale too; I never had it before this year but man, I missed out! Kale chips are my fav.
Unfortuately, my friends & family don’t think greens are that tasty. Some girl once asked me what I was eating (it was a salad!) and looked disgusted. All the people my age (18-19s) eat junk food all the time.

This is like the BEST tip!! I’ve never thought of making the smoothie ahead and FREEZING it!!! This is going to change my summer
Thanks so much for this post, Sabine! Incredibly informative and helpful!
wow! what a wonderful and informative post! SO MUCH INFO i love my greens! and i love your advice on taking healthy foods with you. i was in the habit awhile back (and am working on getting back there..) of making a fresh salad w/ my homemade vinigrette EVERY DAY i had work. it only took at most half an hour to get all the stuff prepared. and i’m even think of just chopping all the veggies right when i get them, that way everything is pre-prepared and i can just add what i want to my spring mix and go! maybe start premaking larger batches of dressing as well! i couldnt agree more that starting with green smoothies is the best way to go about adding more greens! i have always been a salad fan but – until i started having my daily smoothie – i had never CRAVED salad as much as i have lately!
great tips on getting more greens, you know we love them
One busy weekend and I have to update on your blog like crazy! Haha, love that! Great blogpost by the way. It so informative, because it’s about the practical stuff around the greens, but also about why they are so healthy.
I’m right in the middle of the process of learning to appreciate greens more. I drink/eat a green monster almost every day now and I am surprised I am able to like them even with only a little bit of fruit. Where I live, romaine and chard aren’t even available at the greengrocer, the market or the supermarket. I know, I live kind of in the middle of nowhere.. I make the smoothies with bok choy, the greens of radish, endive, spinach and also with different kinds of cabbage. Today I discovered a bio-webshop that delivers at our home and it has romaine and chard, score!!
Your tip about freezing smoothies is great! That way I can make a couple of smoothies ahead when I have some time to spare, because with my little blender I can’t make a smoothie very fast. I think it takes me at least 20/30 minutes or so to make it. (From washing and chopping the ingredients to cleaning the blender). I can only put a small amount of greens or fruits in, blend until smooth and then add some more. Secretly I hope my little blender will break some time (soon) so I can buy a better one!
By the way: my salad spinner was cheaper: 1 euro! (no, it wasn’t a new one) Thank’s for the picture of the oil sprayer. I was already looking for that. I see I can buy them at AH, so I’ll give Appie a visit today!
Keep the good work up!
I’m catching up on the posts I’ve missed, and I just have to say I LOVE this post. And greens. It’s so informative and great info for those who are new to the glory of greens. And great tip about making smoothies the night before then freezing! I hate having to do a lot of dishes in the morning but I love green smoothies at lunch. This could be the perfect solution….

[...] Very cool new supplement I had been lusting over! I’ve had Spirulina powder for months (picked it up in NY) but never use it since the taste is rather… ocean-y. Chlorella and spirulina are much easier consumed in tablet-form, if you ask me. I don’t take many supplements (B12 1-2 times a week and a daily probiotic is all I take on a constant basis. I take a vegan multivitamin on days where I ate poorly or too little (for instance when I was sick), so, hardly ever) but I plan on incorporating some that gently aid in cleansing the body (as opposed to supplements that one would need to receive adequate intakes for vitamins etc). Mainly, it’s full of chlorophyll, and we all know how much I love the big C.. [...]
