Today I Made:
MACA ALMOND CACAO SMOOTHIE for BREAKFAST.
Lately, my husband and I have been eating more high-raw vegan.
Our morning routine for the last 2 months is as follows:
Wake up- drink a few cups of room temperature water with a few drops of fresh lemon juice lemon (helps detoxify the liver).
Followed by a 20 ounce green juice (1 for each one of us) made with kale,spinach,celery,ginger,oranges, more lemon,
apple, and pears.
And for breakfast, we have an awesome smoothie made with almond milk, frozen bananas, almond butter, 1 date (for sweetness) cacao beans or nibs, melted coconut oil, and maca.
Every ingredient in our smoothie serves a purpose:
Almond milk-casein and cholesterol free non dairy milk alternative.
Cacao beans/nibs-extremely high in antioxidants,magnesium, and a natural antidepressant.
Coconut Oil-antiviral,antimicrobial, and antifungal properties.
Maca-increases energy, libido, and improves energy (important,since we stopped drinking coffee almost 2 months ago).
