We began this as a 1 week trial after seeing a documentary over a year and a half ago.. and here we are! The trial never ended.. now it’s part of our INNATE DIET.. living according to the foods we are genetically designed to eat.. as HUMANS! We have found this to be an amazing boost of focus, energy, calm and collected thought, and helps get rid of all that gunk that builds in the mouth, throat, and sinuses overnight (which is a sign of non-Innate, deficient, irritating foods the day before)
Basic Recipe for 2 people: ALL LOCAL ORGANIC IS BEST & HEALTHIEST!
- 1 avocado for healthy fats and cholesterol (take out the pit!)
- 1 whole med-lrg cucumber (peeled to decrease chemicals if not organic or grown yourself)
- 1/4 package (big pinch) of alfalfa sprouts (or some other kind of sprout)
- 1 handful of baby spinach
- 1 Nectarine or green apple (our favorites)
You can add these things for a little sweetness, but smaller amounts are preferable:
Berries (non sweetened) Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, Currants, Goji, etc!
Frozen fruit is great because it makes the smoothie cold and easier to eat for some people. You could add a few ice cubes as well BUT better for your digestion is not frozen.
There are other veggies that you’ll want to try adding…..go nuts!
Kale (THE BEST source of dietary Calcium.. but if you don’t eat many raw veggies you’re digestion system may be weak and it will take some time before this is easy to eat)
ANY other dark green leafy vegetables
Chop the larger items up before they go in the blender so they get chopped easier. Also add a little bit of Distilled or Reverse Osmosis filtered water (Tap water is toxic!) to desired consistency.. we like ours thicker like almost needing a spoon to eat.
If you use a normal blender it works well to put the cukes and carrots in.. and a little water.. blend.. and then it’s soupy.. so you can add the leafies and other ingredients easier.
For a while we were using the magic bullet for each of our shakes individually.. but now we use the vita-mix blender for both of ours together.. and it’s absolutely fantastic!
The point of having only veggies is to keep the body internally alkaline instead of acidic (which most foods in the Standard American Diet (SAD) are acidifying and cause disease and contribute to degeneration, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, allergies, asthma, etc.)
Begin by doing this daily for a week… and then continue from there. We find it’s a great perk-up in the morning…and you wont be as hungry as soon as if you had cereal, bagels, bread, coffee, etc!
Just the sound of the blender in the morning is a great wake-up call too!
Enjoy and tell us all about your experiences!
