Yesterday, Jesse Pomeroyand I shot the production of my favorite breakfast, my Green Smoothie, for Going Veg. This is what I make every morning. It provides every nutrient possible and tastes delicious. A perfect way to start the day.
In it, there are as many greens as I can pack in (usually a combination of collard greens, dandelion greens, and black kale). The greens are filled with antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and chlorophyll which floods the body with oxygen. Then I add a couple tablespoons of both flaxseed and hempseed for the omega 3 fatty acids. Next, I fill the blender to capacity with frozen fruit (typically I combine blueberries, cherries, raspberries, mango, pineapple, papaya and frozen banana). Finally, I pour in either almond milk, coconut water or a chilled mug of green tea (depending on my mood). Blend it all together and voila! The perfect breakfast is served!
