Go green with a delicious healthy smoothie for breakfast. My day begins with a big tall one. Every morning it’s a bit different, and I drink it before a workout, yoga or qigong. This basic recipe is loaded with vital nutrition and whole food flavor. I make sure I use tart fruits, which are low in sugars and carbs. It’s important to avoid sweet fruits (those high in fructose), because who needs a blood sugar roller-coaster to start the day? The recipe is simple – you can vary it any way you like. The optional superfoods are highly recommended. Serves 1 or 2.

Sunrise-Green-Smoothie1

This smoothie is dark green from fresh spinach, spirulina, and a slice of beet.
I modify it a little every morning in order to rotate foods, so my body wakes up to an
exciting new flavor and digestive experience each day.
