Let me start off by saying that I have a lot of energy naturally but there is a difference between natural energy and food energy. When I am eating my healthiest and incorporating green smoothies in the morning, my energy is sharper and more consistent.
In my detoxes, the first meal on day 1 is our green smoothie. Below is one of the recipes I use to step up both my mental + physical game.
- 1.5 cups filtered water
- 1 cup spinach
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/4 cup frozen berries (optional, I do not use)
- 1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder (I either use Sun Warrior, Genuine Health or Vega)
- 1 tbsp ground flax seed, chia seed or hemp seed
- 1 tbsp spirulina powder
- Optional superfoods + herbs: ashwaganda powder, moringa powder, matcha, reishi, MCT oil, etc!
Mix together the above mentioned ingredients until well combined (the less green particles the better). Use frozen berries or ice to make sure the smoothie does not get too warm.
Try this out and let me know what you think, more importantly how you feel!
