I’m often asked what I eat in a day and so I wanted to share my morning smoothie with you as I have found this to be my most important meal where I get the largest amount of daily nutritional requirements so that when my day starts to get busy I have the reassurance that I have taken care of my essential vitamin and mineral intake.
As the day progresses, I like to have the heaviest meal at lunch and a light dinner in preparation for the elimination cycle during sleep. My favorite way to make smoothies, soups and juices these days is with a vita mix so that I can leave the fiber in the smoothie.
GLOWING SKIN SMOOTHIE
1 cup organic no sugar almond milk
1 scoop “Garden Of Life” Protein powder or protein powder of choice

1/4 cup organic coconut water or filtered water
6 handfuls of spinach or kale
1/2 teaspoon organic Algae oil (my favorite is by THRIVE)
1/4 avocado or 1 tablespoon of almond butter (this will make your smoothie very creamy)
DESSERT SMOOTHIE POPSICLE

DETOX SMOOTHIE (As shown in picture)

6 stalks of celery

3 tablespoons flat leaf parsley (Thought to help rid the body of mercury)
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds or chia seeds1/2 teaspoon Algae oil
