Sinful Raspberry Chocolate Protein Shake

Sinful indeed! You’ll wonder how it tastes so amazing yet provides 100% of the metabolic-burning nutrients you crave to jumpstart your morning (or post-workout) routine. This protein shake balances muscle-building protein, brain-healthy fat, low-glycemic fruit, and the #1 source of fruit fiber to nourish your system and satisfy your taste buds. Raspberries are loaded with 8 grams of fiber per cup. One of the most fascinating new areas of raspberry research involves the potential for raspberries to improve management of obesity. Raw cashews are a rich source of copper - a key mineral in multiple body systems. It is vital to building strong tissue, maintaining blood volume, and producing energy in your cells. Not only do raw cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, approximately 82% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus about 66% of this unsaturated fatty acid content are heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, similar to those found in olive oil. Chocolate in the form of raw cocoa powder is deliciously decadent and also is rich in antioxidants such as flavonols to promote heart health and reduce the risk of cancer. Flavonols may also help lower blood pressure and improve blood flow to the brain and heart. Greek Yogurt adds the perfect "tang" to enhance the flavor and deliver gut-healthy probiotics. This recipe is boosted with superfoods including metabolic-enhancing green tea matcha powder and omega-rich chia seeds. One sip and you’ll be adding this to your weekly breakfast rotation. It’s also the perfect “snack” when feeling a need for an afternoon sweet treat! Superfood Brand recommendation links are listed below.

Market Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie from Donna Gates Body Ecology for #candida. Green apples are a sour fruit that adds a touch of sweetness to an alkaline, vegetable-rich smoothie. Ideally fruit should be eaten alone and on an empty stomach for optimum digestion, but work just fine for most people when combined with veggies. If you find that the addition of the apple is too sweet for you, then don’t put it in. In other words, temporarily eliminate the apple if you are dealing with severe candida-related problems and use some fermented coconut meat and stevia to thicken and flavor your smoothie.
