Christmas Morning Greens Booster: Chlorophyll To Cleanse
Chlorophyll rich foods like spirulina and chlorella have amazing health benefits, are natural detoxifiers, and make great additions to your green drinks. Here's a recipe for you to enjoy this christmas morning, or any other morning, as well as a list of benefits that chlorophyll rich foods offer our bodies.
My Christmas Morning Smoothie (serves two):
2 ripe bananas
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup fresh cranberries
2 Tbsp Honey
Juice from half a lemon
1/4 cup raw almonds
a few solid fist-fulls of spinach (about 3-4 oz)
chlorella or spirulina (i used about 15 sun chlorella tabs)
16 oz of water
Blend, Pour, Sip, & Smile.
You can buy chlorella as tabs or a powder. Either will do just fine. Chlorella is rich in complete proteins, all of the B Vitamins, as well as Vitamin C and E. Along with Beta Carotene and a wealth of trace minerals, chlorella also contains Omega 3 fatty acids. It binds to heavy metals and pesticides aiding detoxification, improves digestion and is attributed to relieving constipation, alkalizes the blood contributing to a proper pH, normalizes blood sugar and blood pressure, and can relieve arthritic pain and bad breath.
You can buy chlorella tabs at the health shop, or follow this link to buy chlorella and spirulina combo tabs at 'We Love Super Foods' (click here). 'We Love Superfoods' (homepage, click here) are two friends of mine: Jason & Pia. They promote a high vibration/raw diet and whole body healing and prevention through superfoods. They are an absolutely inspiring pair with beyond vibrant energy. If you get the honor to meet them, or experience their kirtan, you will want to make sure you are eating every superfood they do so that you can vibrate at their same level.
