What's in my Green Drink?
This is what I regularly put in my "Green Drink" first thing in the morning. Keep in mind sometimes the ingredients will change, I may only have 2 different fruits, or I might add something like honey or oranges. Basically, it's not an exact recipe, however, these are my staple ingredients:
Handful of Kale - curly, dinosaur, purple - loaded with minerals, vitamins, fiber, and amino acids, as well as important anti-oxidants.
Handful of Baby Spinach - high in anti-oxidants, protein, and fiber.
4-6 strawberries - heart healthy and high in Vitamin C.
7-10 blackberries - powerful anti-oxidant, can help prevent Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, and are anti-aging.
7-10 raspberries - neutralize free radicals.
Handful of blueberries - among the highest ranking anti-oxidants; also anti-aging and improve cognitive function.
Tsp chia seeds - maintain hydration, boost endurance, and are high in Omega-3.
Tbsp flax seed - also high in Omega-3.
1 or 2 scoops of protein powder.
If you want to sweeten it you could add half of an apple, orange, or banana.
