Hi guys! I've just started making green smoothies so I can sneak in some more greens into my diet, but I have a few questions that I couldn't answer myself through googling.

Anyway, I know you're supposed to rotate your greens, but does that mean that you should, say, only buy spinach and just have spinach smoothies for one week, and then the next week buy kale, etc. Or does it mean that you should buy a little spinach, a little kale, etc and eat different greens throughout the week?

Also, I don't really mind the Kale taste anymore, so I've packed like three cups (and I really mean three full cups) of greens into each smoothie, but it hits my stomach really hard (can't think of another way to describe it). Should I cut back? What's the correct amount, in cups, to use? I don't seem to have this problem when I use 3 cups of spinach.

Thanks!

Thanks for al the help! After having them for a little longer, the kale isn't really bothering me as much. Kale is strangely becoming my favorite over my other greens, because it tastes yummy and I really feel it! I know 3 cups is a lot of greens, but I only use fresh greens and when I've added everything (a banana, other fruit, small amount of juice), it's about 24-30oz of smoothie.
