It is a luxury if I have the time to sit down for lunch. Around here it is go, go, go and then go some more. I find if I don’t have something nutritious prepared then I either skip my mid-day meal altogether, or I cram something unhealthy in my mouth to get through the day. My power shake saves me most days, plus it is super healthy.
Keep in mind there are multiple ways to prepare this shake. My measurements are just approximate you can adjust them according to your taste.
1 Cup Almond Milk
4 to 5 large Strawberries (frozen or fresh)
A large handful of Blueberries (frozen or fresh)
A couple of handfuls of Spinach
1 Banana or a little honey (not shown)
1 Tablespoon of Powder Wheat Grass
1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon Powder
1/2 Teaspoon of Tumeric
1/2 Teaspoon of Ginger
pinch of Cayenne
1 Scoop or about 2 Tablespoons of Garden of Life Perfect Food Energizer
There are a few other things I add occasionally.
1 Teaspoon of Liver Cleanse. I buy my herbs at the Bulk Herb Company online and follow their recipe.
I love this chocolate flavored Raw Protein Powder. It beefs up my shake and tastes good.
I also add Spirulina when I am feeling like I need an extra kick, but it is not my favorite.
Combine everything in a blender and blend until smooth. Depending on how much fruit and spinach you use, you may have to add a little more Almond Milk.
Out the door with my shake and Go Mom Go!
