Most of us start the morning in a typically chaotic fashion. The kids need a stick of dynamite to get them out of bed and on time to school. The adults run around like headless chickens getting the kids ready and preparing for their day as best they can.
The one thing that usually suffers the most is breakfast. Sure, some of us grab a bowl of cereal. Maybe we cruise through the drive through for some fast food. Some skip breakfast entirely.
This isn’t healthy. Most cereals are loaded with sugar and some contain a weed killer called glyphosate that causes cancer. The fast food (is that really even food?) is a chemistry experiment more than anything else – it typical contains over a dozen chemicals that are unhealthy.
The solution? Smoothies!
SMOOTHIES ARE SO EASY TO DO!
All that’s needed is a simple blender… nothing fancy is required.
Here are the ingredients:
3 Tablespoons of Organic Chia Seed
3 Tablespoons of Organic Coconut Oil
½ Cup of Organic Triple Berry Mix or a favorite organic fruit
Earthly Choice SuperFood Blend (see picture below)
2 Tablespoons of Creapure Creatine (Optional)
Organic Coconut Water (to fill blender)
Blend for 30 seconds. Make it the night before to have a no hassle morning. Keeps well in the refrigerator for 3 days.
WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS SMOOTHIE?
All of the ingredients are selected to be anti-inflammatory, which is what causes pain. Not only that, but a daily glass of this concoction will boost overall health.
Chia seed is high in magnesium which is great for muscle health. It also has a lot of fiber and Omega 3 fatty acids which reduce pain.
Coconut oil is a Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) that is a potent anti-inflammatory.
Bananas are filled with potassium and add flavor to the smoothie.
The berry mix adds anthocyanins, another potent anti-inflammatory.
Creatine is great for building muscle as well as supporting the heart, kidneys and liver. It’s not just for muscle heads.
Coconut water is low in sugar and is delicious. I used to use tart cherry juice instead, but found out that it has twice as much sugar as coconut water.
