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! 😋
