Smoothie Sunday

I believe in real food.

Pineapples. Brown Rice. Bananas. Carrots. Almonds. Shrimp. Mangos. Cashews. Broccoli. Almond Butter. Honey. Salmon. Eggs. Coconuts. Sweet Potatoes. Spaghetti Squash. Peppers. Spinach. Sunflower Seeds. Chicken. Grapes.

The list goes on…

I can’t help but spend an absurd amount of time in the produce section of the grocery store, filling my cart with fruits and vegetables for the week. I leave my cart in one spot as I walk slowly from display to display picking out the most colorful and ripe options.

As I shop, I begin excitedly counting down until I can get back to my kitchen and create something delicious. And just like anyone else who grocery shops while hungry, cooking is the first thing I do when I arrive home with a trunk full of groceries.

All of those fruits, vegetables, meat, nuts, whole grains, etc. are what make the most satisfying meals. Those ingredients are what fuel my body every single day. And the thought of replacing them with anything else, at least to me, is absurd.

I know that you know a majority of food is full of preservatives, chemicals, and toxins. It’s no secret. And I have no desire to lecture you on what it does to your body.

Instead, I want to offer alternatives. I want to show you that real food can look, smell, and taste delicious. I want to give you the knowledge and opportunity to see for yourself that food is fuel for your one and only body.

Today, that alternative is a smoothie.

A quick and easy way alternative to get nutrients while still enjoying something that tastes sweet, refreshing, and filling.You could replace that latte and muffin at 3pm with a smoothie. Or perhaps you have a smoothie and peanut butter toast for breakfast rather than cereal. Or you could even freeze your smoothie creation, and eat it like Italian ice after dinner.

No matter what you choose to do, here’s the recipe for you to try out:

Now after going through the ingredient list and scanning the pictures, you might have noticed The Sunwarrior’s Ormus SuperGreens. If it’s unfamiliar to you, don’t fret. It wasn’t until recently when I was searching for a chemical-free, plant- based supplement that I stumbled upon the company, and it’s products.

Sunwarrior is a health food company whose products are clean and powerful. They provide the nutrients you need to be the best and healthiest version of yourself. And the company stands by a moral code for real food that I can support.

As I was researching Sunwarrior supplements, I learned that the company provides a video describing each product. How cool is that?

No longer are the days where someone hands you a supplement and simply says “it’s good for you.” See for yourself! Here’s the video for Ormus Super Greens:

And after actually trying out the product, I give it two thumbs up. My smoothie had more nutritional value, and tasted great. I knew I was giving my body what it needed without the extra “stuff” other companies add.

Keep in mind smoothies are easily changed, while still tasting incredible. Try peanut butter instead of almond butter. Use an avocado instead of a banana. Add kale in place of spinach. It’s totally up to you!

Now whether you follow my smoothie recipe exactly or create your own, I hope you try it out.
