Also, I added some Nutribiotic Rice Protein Powder
to the smoothie since I’ve been trying to get in a bit more protein

the asparagus, mushrooms, carrots, celery, kale, and onion in a lidded
tub. Combine the orange juice, ginger, garlic, olive oil, liquid
aminos, agave, cayenne, and red pepper flakes. Whisk to combine, or use
a bullet type blender. Pour half this marinade over the vegetables in
the tub and place the lid on. Set aside the other half of the marinade
for later. Let sit, stirring or shaking every so often, for about an
hour. Then pour onto lined dehydrator tray and dehydrate for an hour or
