Breakfast Smoothie Recipes
Breakfast Smoothie Recipes can be your best choice when in a hurry. It is a nice break from bacon and eggs if you've been on Phase I
Smoothie recipes can also provide your children with the nutrients they would not normally be open to in the morning.
I have blended now every morning for the last 8 years and I can honestly tell you that when I don't have my breakfast smoothie, I feel it! It energizes and nourishes for the entire day!
My Green Breakfast Smoothie Recipesperfect for Phase II:
Serves 2 to 4This many times serves as breakfast and lunch for me.
If you have a household blender, I recommend you put nuts and seeds in first and begin to blend. Slowly add remaining ingredients. I use a Vitamix which makes everything blend so nicely. I purchased my Vitamix about 7 years ago and I've never regretted it. I make nut butters, blend smoothies, make soups and purees in seconds. You can purchase a Vitamix through me and by using my promo code on the vitamix page, you get free shipping. A $25US $35CA savings.
Many of my clients who have used household blenders find it is a bit chunky but they work with it.
This is a huge drink and lasts me the entire day. I personally eat twice daily and this is one of my meal options 5 to 6 days per week.
I utilize kelp for iodine and thyroid health. My thyroid is healthy and I would like to keep it that way. If you have thyroid issues, consult your physician as those with Hashimoto Thyroiditis may react negatively to an iodine supplement particularly in the absence of selenium.
Recently, I have been adding raw frozen liver to a small portion which I blog about here

Breakfast Smoothie Recipes For Children
Let's ease the kids into this slowly. You know as well as I do that if the children see anything green, they run for the hills. My suggestion for children includes a higher berry content which will keep their blood sugar stable as well as mask any vegetable flavor. Blend this to your child's taste buds. This recipe will serve two.
Blend and Enjoy
*Bananas are not a good weight loss fruit so if you are working on weight loss for your children, do be careful with the Banana.
If the kids don't have a peanut allergy, 1-2 tbs. of peanut butter will mask anything!
Egg Creme Breakfast Smoothie Recipes
Looking for a breakfast smoothie with raw eggs? I just felt you crinkle your nose! It isn't as slimy as it sounds and one does not need an iron stomach to consume it. There's a whole wave of what some are referring to as the "Egg Creme". I do not advise you use conventional eggs for this. If you are going to blend raw eggs, you will need to use fresh, organic eggs. The food borne illness salmonella is found on the shell and not the egg itself.
Smoothie Recipe for Egg Creme:
The Magic Bullet is the best kitchen gadget for this one.
Dairy Free Breakfast Smoothie

Easy Whey Protein Breakfast Smoothie Recipes
Add wet ingredients to a magic bullet or blender, add protein powder and blend.
This is a great blend and go shake if you're in a hurry, post work out, or a great after school snack the kids will love!
After reviewing several different whey protein powders, I have had favorites and they generally include whey from Grassfed Cows not treated with hormones or antibiotics as well, micro filtered. There is a lot of junk on the market and remember your healthy food rules regarding high heat processing of dairy! Oxidized cholesterol is dangerous cholesterol.
Thank you to my dear friend and low carbohydrate/natural foods follower Tammy Aguilar for your hard work. Tammy spent countless hours comparing ingredients, price per serving and source and came up with what we think is the best bang for your body and buck! Tammy is also one of the first brave souls who tried my green smoothie and came up with the cod liver oil addition as a "boost in lemon flavor".
