JOYFULLY HEALTHY: A TIP FROM SUNDARA
Be the “Bunny” – Energizer Bunny that is.
Energize your cells, body and mind in a matter of minutes with my “SUPER SMOOTHIE“. Over the nearly 17 years of my professional holistic medicine career, there are a few wellness tools that reign supreme. Providing the body with consistent, concentrated, easy to digest nutrients is one of these supreme wellness tools. One of the easiest ways to do that is with Smoothies.
SUNDARA’S SUPER SMOOTHIE
(move over energizer bunny)
8-20 oz of One of the following three options:
1. Filtered Water
2. Filtered Water AND Aloe Vera Juice (Lily of the Desert, organic, no preservatives)Ratio: water 4 parts & aloe 1 part.
3. Rice, Almond, or Coconut milk AND Filtered Water.
Diluting the milk lowers sugar intake. Ratio 1 part water & 1 part milk.
2 TBSP 2 Heaping Tablespoons of Brown Rice Protein Powder
(plain, vanilla, berry, or chocolate)
It is wise to alternate quarterly between rice and other types of protein powders.
1 Cup Frozen Berries or Frozen Fruit of Your choice or 1 Banana.
Berries add a sweet taste to the smoothie as well as provide beneficial bioflavonoids.
½ tsp – 1 TBSP Greens in Powder form – Alfalfa Juice, or Barley, or Wheat grass
1-2 TBSP Flax Oil. Refrigeration required. Shake well before each use.
FOR EXTRA ENERGY ADD:
1 – 4 Cups Fresh Leaves of Spinach, or Chard, or Kale
**Don’t worry you won’t taste the “green” – the frozen berries/fruit are the dominant taste. If not, then add more fruit to your smoothie. Smoothies are Supposed to taste GOOD!
Requires a Blender or Vita-Mix type appliance. Put the ingredients in the Blender, put the lid on (less messy that way) and blend until it is the consistency you like. If it isn’t sweet enough, you can always add more frozen berries or fruit.
For thicker smoothie add less water and/or you can add rice/almond/coconut yogurt. For a less thick smoothie, add more water.
Many people enjoy their smoothie as a meal replacement – especially in the morning. Others enjoy having their smoothie 30-60 minutes before or after a workout. The Super Smoothie provides concentrated, easy to digest nutrients, and with one smoothie a day, you are likely to notice more energy within 3-10 days.
Soon, You too will be an energized happy hopper
