Well, I said morning, but I generally don't have this shake or any food until 11 or 12 noon. The first thing I have in the morning is a large glass of water with a bit of lemon. I have found that intermittent fasting works really well for
me. Therefore, I drink my shake, have a simple breakfast and eat nothing more until between 5 and 7 p.m. After that...no more food!
My super healthy fruit shake is my "happy meal" of the day. I love fruit and the creaminess of this
shake. Here is what I use. The items in bold are a must. Other items are an option as needed. I use all of these items.
1/2 cup extra clean water (that means city water is not what you should
2 or 3 types of fresh or frozen fruit, your choice ( I like kiwi, mango, strawberries (organic), 1/2 banana (organic), pineapple, cherries, blueberries, pomegranates, grapes...)
1 packet Acai Energy Boost (amazon.com)
1 heaping Tbls Irish Moss gel (see how-to instructions under GPRHealth for Irish Moss [IM])
5-10 drops (as needed) NOW Extra Strength Liquid Vitamin D-3 (take K2 softgel with smoothie)
Great Lakes Unflavored Kosher gelatin powder (swansons, vitacost, amazon, etc), optional
1 Tbls chia seeds or 1 Tbls Flax Seed oil, optional
1 Tbls Organic Valley Grassfed yogurt, plain, optional
I blend this in my little mini-blender
until all is mixed well and the pom or grape seeds are broken down. With this shake I take two HeathMasters.com (Dr. Ted Broer) B Complex capsules.
If I plan to go to the gym or workout at home, I have a high protein breakfast of meat/poultry
(no pork) or smoked fish and eggs. With this I usually have grits (organic) or freshly made bread from organic whole grains. I use real organic butter in my meal preparation and on my bread and grits.
I cannot begin to tell
you how this energizes me. I feel like I could put the Hulk on the floor! Only kidding. But seriously, this shake and the other items are incredible and have made a huge difference as to how I face life for the day. On days that I don't
workout (usually Tuesdays, Thursday and Sabbath), I pretty much eat a breakfast of my choice. BUT, I still have the shake.
