The month of July for me means studying. On August 5th I am writing 5 exams in basic sciences (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, and pathology) as part of licensing to eventually become a naturopathic doctor. All naturopathic students finished 2nd year write these exams on the same day across North America! Needless to say, there is a lot of material (2 years’ worth) to review, so my body and brain needs support. A smoothie is a great way to add a lot of extra nutrients to your diet, so I thought I’d share my morning smoothie recipe which is made up (almost) entirely of Gatherer superfoods:
Frozen pineapple chunks
Frozen mango chunks
1 Tbsp lecithin
1 Tbsp ground flax
½ scoop Protein Blend O
½ scoop Harmonia sprouted greens powder
1. Fill 2 cup smoothie cup with fruit, lecithin, flax, protein powder, and greens powder.
2. Add a splash of cranberry juice, a slightly larger splash of pineapple juice and fill rest of cup to cover fruit with water.
3. Let sit for approximately 15-20 minutes (while you shower, get ready for the day, whatever).
4. Blend together and drink.
I usually drink half of this mixture before eating the rest of my breakfast (usually an egg and some kind of vegetable) and then the other half as a snack later in the day.
In addition to the above, I am also taking fish oil and Catechol twice per day, as I find these supplements help with focus and concentration, as well as supporting my body through stress. I also make sure to have at least one cup (but not more than two) of green tea in the morning to energize me.
