As I think this is a very important way to start your day, I would like to share one of my favorite smoothies. And I would like to hear some of yours so I can try them and measure then up to my masterpiece. :p

My favorite one to date.

2 cups spinach (I buy these fresh, but freeze them because they tend to go bad quickly)
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 can organic coconut milk
1 cup water
1 Tbs cocoa
1 Tbs chia seed
2 tsp honey
1 scoop pea protein powder

Not the best tasting but certainly gives me a boost!

2 cups kale
Stick celery
1/2 large carrot
1/2 avocado
1/2 granny smith apple
Thumb sized piece root ginger
1 tbsp chia seeds
And enough water to make it drinkable!

We used to get ice cream for my kids on Friday nights after pizza. The problem was that I would eat anything that was lsft over. I have very little willpower.

While I'm not really sure what to think about Anthony William (the "Medical Medium"), he does seem to offer some good dietary advice. But, then again, it's not much different than many other plant-based advocates.

Anyway, here are some of his "Power Breakfasts" recipes:

----------

Wild Blueberry Smoothie

This simple smoothie recipe is delicious, vibrant, and comes together easily in just a couple of
minutes. Wild blueberries are the star ingredient with their phenomenal health benefits.

Ingredients:

• 1 cup wild blueberries
• 2 bananas
• 2 dates, soaked
• 1/2 lemon
• 1 cup of water

Directions:

Combine the wild blueberries, bananas, dates, and water in the blender. Add the juice from half a
lemon. Blend the ingredients until smooth and well combined.

Serves 1-2

----------

Green Smoothie Bowl

The base of this smoothie bowl is creamy, sweet and refreshing with a hint of tartness. If the addition
of greens scares you, don't worry! You can hardly taste them in this recipe but you'll still receive their
benefits. The different flavors and textures of the toppings give you something to bite into, making this
smoothie bowl a really fun eating experience!

Smoothie Ingredients:

• 1 frozen banana
• 2 fresh bananas
• 4 kiwi fruit, skin removed !
• juice of 1/2 lime
• 1 tsp barley grass juice powder
• 1 cup spinach
• 1/2 to 1 cup water

Topping Ingredients:

• banana slices
• kiwi fruit slices
• organic shredded coconut
• or choose any other fruits you like

Directions:

Blend the spinach with 1/2 cup of water. Add the rest of the smoothie ingredients into the blender
and blend until smooth. You may wish to add in extra water to facilitate blending or for a thinner
consistency.

Add toppings of choice and enjoy!

----------

Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

This smoothie brings a healthy spin on the classic creamsicle. It's thick, creamy, refreshing, sweet and
gives a bright pop of tangy flavor with the orange. This smoothie is so good that both adults and
children will be asking for more. It's perfect as a breakfast smoothie, for lunch, or a snack.

Ingredients:

• 2 frozen bananas
• 1 fresh banana
• 3 whole chopped oranges, peel and seeds removed* !
• 1-2 cups coconut water
• Seeds from 1/4 vanilla bean, or 1 tsp vanilla extract (not essence)

*If you don't have a high-speed blender, you may prefer to try using 1 cup of fresh orange juice
as the oranges may not blend smooth.

Directions:

Place coconut water in the blender. Blend with the oranges until smooth.

Add the frozen and fresh bananas and vanilla and blend again until very smooth and creamy. If
you use only fresh bananas instead of frozen the smoothie will still taste wonderful. It just won't
be as creamy and dessert-like.

Serve right away and enjoy!

----------

Apple Green Juice

This lightly sweet green juice is a perfect staple for your mornings and will be enjoyed by kids and
adults alike!

Ingredients:

• 4 stalks of kale
• 1 head of celery
• 1 lemon, peeled
• 2 apples

Directions:

Run all ingredients through a juice one at a time. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Serves 1-2

I LOVE ice-cream... I told my husband NOT to bring it into the house. It's not just the sugar/dairy (as I'm not on a really strict diet) - but the cold bothers me now - ramps up my shivering.




I can really pack it away, too. Huge bowl and I'm going for seconds.


Dude - Those smoothie recipes look great. I better write them down.

You know, speaking of ice cream, Girlie, I once heard someone state that the reason people can eat ice cream is because it's so cold. The person went on to say that, if one melted ice cream and tried to eat/drink it, they wouldn't be able to, because it's so sickly sweet. Supposedly, the cold temperature helps mask most of the sweetness. I haven't tested the theory, but it sounded plausible.

You’re right - it is sweeter when melted.

I actually leave my bowl sit for 10 minutes before I indulge because the melted ice cream tastes so good.
