I recommend that my clients use a shake
for one meal of the day. It is easy to add many of your powdered supplements
to, or even to empty capsules into. It makes a very nutritious and filling
meal. It is useful for those who are wanting to lose weight.
This shake is good for anyone wanting to make a slight change from a conventional diet. If you are transitioning to raw food see my raw food page.
1. FRUIT SHAKE
Add the following to the blender:
almond milk or rice milk, yogurt if you use dairy products
,( no cow's milk please --
see the article on cow's milk), I am no longer suggesting soy milk either !
and add enough
water to get the consistency you want
fresh or frozen fruit, frozen fruit often makes the shake taste
better, and frozen bananas make it very creamy
ground pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds,or other nuts
ground flax seeds or HEMP oil
2 heaping teaspoons or more of hemp
hearts . I recommend the hemp hearts, seeds, nuts
and flax as your protein, and do not ever recommend protein
powders, I feel they are too processeD
a teaspoon of kelp powder for minerals
a teaspoon of nutritional yeast for vitamins and mineral
a teaspoon of beet powder, bowel cleansing and alkalizing to
Himalyan salt sole for trace minerals, or other trace mineral
other supplements you use as a powder or in capsules
(that won't change the taste of the shake too much, such as):
calcium ascorbate powder, or vitamin C powder, bioflavinoid
powder, slippery elm, acidophilus
2. VEGGIE SHAKE
Add any of the following to a blender &
blend until smooth:
water & psyllium, put about 1/2 cup water in the blender,
add 1 heaping tsp. psyllium & let sit for at least 20 min.
1 stick celery sliced (because of the strings)
1/2 organic lemon, whole
slices of green, red, orange or yellow peppers
greens: parsley, spring mix organic greens, arugula
1/2 cucumber - peeled
small slice of onion or garlic
apple if you want
You can add any of your powdered supplements: acidophilus, spirulina,
tinctures, hemp oil, raw almonds, pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds,
This is a good shake to have during a cleanse, have a fruit shake in
the morning, and a veggie shake for lunch. You can use any raw fruits
in season that will blend up ok.
