    I have been eating some version of the following since I purchased my “Bullet” using the large container:

    1) One standard grocery store size navel orange, peeled
    2) One similar sized granny smith apple
    3) One similar sized banana, peeled
    4) About 6 “baby carrots”
    5) About 3 ounces diced frozen mango chunks
    6) 2 large kale leaves, stalks and all
    7) Gatorade

    I mix the first 4 ingredients together with the Gatorade and pour the results into an empty Gatorade bottle. Then, I mix the kale leaves and the mango chunks with tap water. I have done this twice a day since April, so I have it figured out what the liquid to ingredient mix is so that it fills that Gatorade bottle when done.

    A few shakes to mix it all together, stick in a straw and suck it all down.

    Frequently I will consume this concoction twice a day. Sometimes only once. After that, whenever I notice that I am a little hungry, I eat whatever I feel like. It is never very much, usually an apple with peanut butter, or toast and peanut butter. Sometimes spaghetti. It doesn’t make much difference. I also run about 18 to 25 miles a week.

    I am 64 and feel great. I felt great before I started with the Bullet, but I have noticed that eating this way significantly assists with the elimination process, which is why I began this in the first place. I do not want to take any medications if I can avoid it. Even the OTC variety.

    If anyone has any feedback regarding nutritional value of my “smoothie”, I’d be more than appreciative to hear from you.

    Thanks for listening.

    • Sounds like a good mix Jay! As a runner myself, I like the use of Gatorade. This would be a great post workout smoothie and a decent meal replacement smoothie too, although I would probably eat a bit of protein with it, like a boiled egg or some low fat cheese if using it as a meal replacement. In fact I might give Gatorade in my smoothies a try now! For nutritional values, here is a nice website and calculator for determining that stuff: http://nutritiondata.self.com/
