Summer Berry Smoothie

by Vashte on December 6, 2013

Enjoy this berry smoothie in Summer. Packed with goodness, antioxidants, alkalising, raw, delish. Smoothies are mega easy to make, refreshing in the heat of Summer, and filling. The entire family loves them and if you have children- you can pile in goodies without them even knowing it! Smoothies beat a milkshake hands down every time!

My smoothies contain no dairy, no added sugar, no gluten, no artificial sweeteners or ingredients and always safe local ingredients.

It is best to buy from your local farmers markets if you can. There are less chemicals, and you can connect with your local communities supporting smaller companies. Commercial farming practices generally use huge amounts of toxic chemicals and sprays; as well as genetically modified seeds- none of which are good for us. In fact, many people, myself included, believe substances like these are major contributors to terminal illnesses like cancer and autoimmune disorders. Having lived through losing my partner when he was just 38 years old to cancer, I am very aware of the lies being sold and peddled to you and I, the consumers.

We have the buying power to stop this misinformation from being spread- but likely only for a short time as large corporations are working hard to close down individuals from free speech in the health industry. So take action NOW. Your money is what talks to them. If we all choose to buy from local farmers who are organic and/or sprayfree- the price of these items will come down as demand increases. Conversely demand will drop for the toxic foods peddled at supermarkets so the big guys have to get on board with organic, healthful foods. WE control THEM- Through our money. When we choose organic and natural- our immune systems become stronger and we no longer fall ill as easily = So fewer visits to the doctors, less reliance on pharmaceutical drugs (all of which have side effects, suppress the immune system and stress other important internal organs etc etc etc.) = we save money on REACTING to illness by not getting sick!!

Yes, We may spend more money on food but less on doctors, hospitals, drugs, illness. Doesn’t it make more cents to you 😉 to live longer, healthier, carefree lives? Imagine a life without the prediction that 1 in 2 people will develop cancer; where children are expected to outlive their parents; where it is normal for children to be born with or develop ADD, autoimmune disorders, allergies, and terminal illnesses. Doesn’t it make sense to look to our food as a possible remedy to some, if not all, of these present day issues? Please remember food is designed to be the fuel for the body- just like petrol to a car. What happens when you put diesel into a car requiring gas? It malfunctions. Why are our bodies any different? God did not make these bodies with the intention for us to fuel them with processed, frozen, ready-made sugar-laden microwaved meals. If we put dead food in, why are we expecting our bodies to do anything other than …die Faster. Painfully before an acceptable life span of  80 YEARS MINIMUM.

Perhaps we might like to change our perspective. Drop the poverty mentality. The ”lack-of ” mentality. Drop the dependence on pharmaceutical drugs. If we get a head ache- that is usually a sign we are dehydrated as the brain is swelling and pressing against our skull. Simple.  So ask a simple, logical question- have I been drinking water today? What type of food have I eaten? Have I had enough sleep? Is my food living, or is it dead- could it be causing my body to dehydrate as it overworks trying to eliminate the poisonous food I chose to et today? What pharmaceutical drugs am I taking… and just go drink a couple of glasses of filtered water and keep doing that all day, every day.

Food for thought? I hope so.

Anyhoo.. smoothies rock. Especially at this time of the year. I like to jazz them up and throw in as many or as little ingredients as I have in the pantry. There are no rules. Aside from making them taste delish. Smoothies are live foods, usually packed with goodness. And great for when you are running short of time- even better as a desert option when other people choose to stuff their faces with lower class foods. :)

This one is mega simple:

Strawberry Smoothie

– berries are in season- its December- go nuts and enjoy them!

  • filtered water
  • ice
  • 1 cup strawberries- any berries you like.
  • 30 gm pea protein ( from vital greens)
  • 1 tablespoon l-glutamine
