Do you start your day with caffeine and sugar? Then just rush out the door? Ugh. I used to do that until I got educated. The first thing that you eat in the morning is very important.
Many of my friends are beginning to take their health more seriously. So, I thought they might be interested in how I start my mornings. I begin with a delicious smoothie that I make in my blender. I also take 10 vitamin and mineral supplements. Sounds like a lot? They are easy to wash down with this delicious smoothie recipe.
Smoothies are easy to make. It’s not an exact recipe. I use the following ingredients:
Frozen berries or other frozen fruit like mango
Unsweetened Non GMO Almond milk
Kefir – Probiotic
Pea Protein powder
Kale, spinach or other green leaf vegetable
and Bea Bread [bee pollen or royal jelly]
Just whiz it all up in a blender.
A list of the supplements I take are:
Isotonix® OPC-3® – a combination of highly potent antioxidants
Isotonix® Vitamin D with K2 – for vascular health and calcium utilization
Ultimate Woman 50+ Multivitamin – important to cover all the basics
Curcumin Extreme™ – anti-inflammatory and joint health
Co-Q10 – cardiovascular and immune health
Omega III Fish Oil with Vitamin E – mood and cardiovascular health
Flax seed Oil -antioxidant and heart health
Magnesium – overall health [too many reasons to list here!]
These supplements have been selected for me by Jean Cornell – Natural Health and Well-being Coach. I highly recommend her. Jean also advised me on the ingredients of this morning smoothie.
- 1 cup Frozen berries or other frozen fruit
- 1 Banana
- 2 cups Almond milk
- a splash of Kefir
- 1 scoop Pea Protein powder
- 1 cup Kale, spinach or other green leaf vegetable
- 1 tsp Bea Bread
- Combine all ingredients in a blender
- Liquify until desired consistency
How you start your day makes a huge difference in your overall health. Smoothies are nutritious and help you feel full so you don’t over eat at lunch. Try my recipe and let me know how you feel after a few weeks. I bet – much better.
