I have never been a fan of taking multi-vitamins for several reasons, cost, the neon colored urine, which seems unnatural, and honestly I forget to take the darn pills. For me making a smoothie is easy, I can control what I put into the smoothie and my urine does not change colors…….unless you add beets, which I don’t; I prefer to eat them.
Greens: A handful. I use Lacinato kale or spinach or a combination
Blueberries: 6-10 berries I use frozen unless in season
Fresh fruit in season –you can still find watermelon and peaches now
Flax seed oil: one tablespoon
Cinnamon: one teaspoon
Turmeric powder: one teaspoon
Protein powder: I use 2 Tablespoons of plant-based protein
Almond milk: between ½ to one cup depending on the fresh fruit used and
Blend together and enjoy.
Greens: I prefer Lacinato Kale because I find it to be less bitter tasting then curly kale. Greens help detoxify the body, give you energy, help with digestion and strengthen the immune system.
Banana: Rich in Potassium and vitamin B6, helps support heart function.
Blueberry: An antioxidant and some Vitamin C
Flax seed oil: Omega 3 thus it helps lower cholesterol
Cinnamon: Supports heart health, known to lower cholesterol
Turmeric: Anti-inflammatory, reduces swelling effective for conditions such as gum
Disease and arthritis….keeps my hands from feeling tight
