Health Insurance Smoothie

Just eat whole, unprocessed, real food is the best advice I can give for someone wanting to get healthy and/or lose weight.  Avoiding processed food and drinks, and including as many fruits (no, you’re not going to gain weight from eating fruit!) and vegetables is the best way to fuel your body & promote health. 

Sadly, I usually eat lunch at my desk or in a meeting, so a smoothie is the best/easiest way for me personally to make sure I have a healthy mid-day meal (I also have some raw cut up veggies and bring a piece of fruit with me -usually an organic apple – for a 3pm snack).

Here’s the basic recipe, but you can adjust according to your preferences:
In a high speed blender (I love my Vitamix!)

  • 3/4 c coconut water
  • 3/4 c water
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 TB chia seeds
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 scoop vegan protein powder (flavored for newbies/unflavored hemp also fine)
  • 2 c organic greens (I like the Taylor Farms mixes)
  • 1/4-1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 tsp camu camu
  • 1 inch piece of ginger
  • 1 tsp matcha powder
