Power Smoothie Recipe - Keys to Good Nutrition & Tips to Eating Healthy

Daily Quote: "Long before you were conceived by your parents, you were conceived in the mind of God." - Rick Warren

Today is my 48th birthday, and I'm so grateful to God to be alive and healthy! I included the above quote because it relates to my birthday and my very existence, and to yours too.

Since it's my birthday, I'm going to keep today's blog about to and to very short. Hope you don't mind a little brevity from time to time.


I'd like to share the recipe I use to create my super nutritious morning every day. It's loaded with powerful nutrients that give my body a real boost of energy, and it's got things in it that assist my body in cleansing and eliminating the wastes from the day before. And best of all, it actually tastes great too! In fact, my 2-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter both demand their own servings.

Put all of the following into a blender:

- about 16 ounces of natural spring water

- half a cup of frozen organic strawberries and/or blueberries

- 2 scoops of "" (my favorite whole food supplement juice powder, which is loaded with over 70+ fruits, berries, greens, vegetables, seeds, nuts, spouts, enzymes, organic minerals, and resilient living probiotics). The Feast is made by .

- 1 scoop of juice powder (I use "Barley Pure" made by Uri)

- 1 scoop of "" (which is loaded with 15 antioxidant-rich berries & fruit, including Noni fruit, Mangosteen, Wolfberry-Goji, Acai berry, black currant, etc.)

- 1 teaspoon of saline solution

- 1/2 fresh lemon (aids in cleansing & elimination)

- 1 ripe banana

- 1 scoop "Food 'N Fiber" (whole food by Uri)

- 1 tablespoon ("Coconut Pure" by Uri)

- 1 good shake of Cayenne pepper (aids in cleansing & elimination)

Put all of these ingredients into a blender and let her rip. I would recommend blending everything except the banana first, and then at the very end, throw in the banana and blend it on low. This way the banana helps to thicken the smoothie.

It takes me about 4 or 5 minutes every morning to make this delicious smoothie, and my body is so happy to get such a powerful nutritious morning boost. Now I actually crave my morning smoothie and "The Feast" that's a part of it. It is so nutrient dense and loaded with whole food nutrition that it has become my daily breakfast and keeps me full until lunch. Enjoy!
