Smoothie Concoctions

Basically for 10 weeks after surgery I stopped coffee,caffeine, stopped eating low grade, low nutrient food, took 3000mg Glucosamine sulphate each day in liquid form and got really stoned added with a whole heap of tramadol and ibuprofen. Average day, wake up, wake, bake then made about a 1.5 litre smoothie blend sometimes twice a day and occasionally a meal in the evening from freshest ingredients I could buy. Basically I had to stay in bed the whole time and let the meniscus graft heal, strong Bristol grown herbs, tramadol and smoothies for nutrients were my plan of attack with some crystal healing balanced on my knees and some prayers!. In fact I drafted in everything I knew here to get this healing well so I can skate again. Cant lie to you folks but needed to kill my active gene for 3 months and the recipe above seemed about the best way I knew how to be able to wake up and then go back to bed again all day and still sleep well in the evening. I purchased a big flat screen tv and watched wingsuit videos by Phoenix Fly on Vimeo and Youtube all day long and imagined it was me flying.. so here are my smoothie recipes that I thought tasted good enough to repeat again and being stoned there was no way I was ever going to remember again so I wrote them down for you all to try..
