Want to get it right but still don’t think you can make the time? Well Ok then- this baby may help you get on your way to a more alkaline, cleansed state of being! Whipped up in a jiffy and can be eaten on the run if you insist. Some days it just cant be helped so arm yourself with healthy options and you can still maintain balanced blood sugars, stay energised and stay alert. Better options and better choices make life that much easier, and that much more fun!

Your choice always!

What you need:

  • 1/2 grapefruit, lemon and apple. (You can leave the grapefruit if you don’t like a tart taste)
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 cup lettuce
  • Fresh mint or coriander
  • 3 teaspoons chia
  • 2 Tablespoons activated organics linseeds
  • 1/2 Cup coconut water
  • 2 Tablespoons of barley grass (back this off if you are only starting on the organic powdered greens to 1 teaspoon, slowly build up)
  • As much ginger as you like. It is great for the stomach and digestion, as are all these ingredients!
  • Ice.
  • Add one scoop of plain unflavoured protein powder (I use pea protein, if at all) to slow absorption and keep hunger at bay for longer.

How To Make It Work:

Very simple! Throw it all into your food processor. I have a very strong blender called a VitaMix. Blend until combined. If you would like it more viscous, add more coconut water or filtered water.

Sip this slowly over a period of time, don’t rush it as it is very filling. As these ingredients are easily absorbable, live and digestible you are likely to be hungry within one to two hours. Make sure you have prepared for the day, but I am sure you do that every day :)

This is the perfect breakfast as it contains Omega 3’s, live foods, and clean protein. If breakfast , lunch and dinner contain these three components, expect your body to respond by keeping balanced energy levels throughout the day, balancing blood sugars, keep hunger at bay, destroy ”cravings”, feel more in control of what foods to eat, lose body fat over time. If the body is fed live, highly nutritional wholefoods, it can more easily fight dis-ease and function as it  was designed to function.

Try it on for size.. perhaps your  (fat) size may diminish as a ‘side’ effect 😉 By feeding the body the right ingredients, it is possible to turn it into a fat burning machine, as opposed to a fat storing machine. Our bodies are usually doing on or the other. I know what I intend for mine to be doing most of the time. What about you?

I would love to hear from you if you make green smoothies or juices in the mornings! Post your comments below- perhaps you have ideas to share with me?!
