Are there any NutriBlasts without greens?

I'm on blood thinners and although I've discussed this with my Cumadin Clinic and they are aware of the increase of greens ( vitamin K ) thickens my blood making me pron to blood clots. They are going to track me closely and increase my Cumadin doses. I would like to do some blasts with other vegetables besides greens. Can you please suggest other vegetables I can use in place of greens?

For those taking Coumadin it is important to keep a consistent intake of Vitamin K so that your Dr. can adjust the dosage of your medication. It isn't necessary to avoid vitamin K containing foods completely, but more so to make sure you eat the same amount daily.
Here's a list of vitamin K content of various foods:

Please discuss with your doctor.
