The Liquid Luncher
Stephanie Tourles got into the habit of drinking her midday meal while writing her latest book, Raw Energy in a Glass, but smoothies are a good option for anyone who doesn't have time to sit for lunch. Her current favorite contains bananas, kale, flaxseed oil and a pinch of sea salt. She whirs the mixture in her blender until it's pale green and creamy, then sucks down a (delicious) serving of greens, rich with fiber, protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
