    Protein Shake with real Collagen, Amino Acids, microgreens!

      My new Favorite shake! What do you do when you get a NutraBullet? Experiment!!! I am continually trying to find ways for my clients to incorporate Beets and Microgreens into their diet and I found a new combination. The flavors compliment each other and it’s pretty pink instead of green, which scares people for some reason.  I don’t understand why people drink blue Gatorade or lime green Scooby snack mixers but take a double look at my green smoothie made from actual food.

      Amaranth is a micro green high in vitamin C, E, K and provides immune support. These vitamins help improve eye health, and skin elasticity. Who doesn’t want that as we age?

      Fennel or sometimes called Anise, contains quercitin. This aids in digestion and helps reduce inflammation and helps prevent cancer. Also excellent source of Vitamin C, which is a major antioxidant. Great source of fiber, folate, and potassium.

      Cinnamon helps slow the glycemic response of sugar by 29% in the body which helps with stabilizing blood sugars. Especially great for diabetics.

      Collagen After the age of 35, our bodies stop making collagen. Which means we need to stimulate growth and replenish daily where we can. If you are unwilling to make #bone broth, then a powdered collagen is needed daily. We need collagen for strong bones (forget the milk!) We need it for joint health, for inflammation reduction and muscle repair due to the high amino acids content.

      Amino acids are the building blocks of immune system! Bet you thought I’d say muscles right? Yes, we need aminos to rebuild torn muscles but we need Aminos because they help the protein synthesis in our bodies. We need it for our Gut Health and brain Health. The more amino acids the more hormone regulation can occur in your body.
      Think of a chain link fence, it takes a lot of “Chains” and you don’t get to pick where the body uses it first. Whatever system is lowest in your body the amino acids convert and build to complete what your body is asking it to do. IF you want to build muscle then start with GUT Health!

      Thyroid Stimulating Smoothie

        Who couldn’t use a boost in Energy?  When you are trying to stimulate the Thyroid, you must nourish your liver and adrenals.  Below is a great combination to start your day, full of nutrients, good fats and fiber.  Great detox for your liver and calming to the adrenals.  Your mind will start to clear, your energy pick up, and you will start making better decisions as the brain fog disappears.

        Vegan, Gluten free
        Happily serves 1-2


        1 cup mixed micro greens
        1/4 cup lemon juice
        1 avocado
        1 stick celery
        1 beet or 1 carrot (if you won’t try a beet)
        1 cucumber
        1 bunch of micro green basil leaves
        1 tsp maca powder
        1 Cup Coconut milk

        1-2 oz Aloe Vera juice
        Sea salt to taste
        Optional: Stevia to taste

        Combine all ingredients in a vitamix/blender and blend until smooth. If you want a thinner consistency add ice and extra lemon juice.

        You can get full fast especially if you are not used to eating fiber.  Try to sip and enjoy, remembering that it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to catch up to your stomach that you are satisfied not FULL.

        I was able to drink half then when I was hungry again, my morning snack was the rest of it.  I was surprised that it kept well for a couple hours.

        You have to eat 60% more “big” veggies to equal these mighty micro sprouts!  I know its a switch for most to eat a plant based diet, so this is a perfect way to introduce a salad a day into your meal plan.  Plus the flavors are bold and so flavorful, you just might develop a taste for what food is really meant to taste like! 😋
