Get Up & Go Smoothie

It's a great morning and it's going to be a busy day for Kingdom Health and myself. We have such hectic lives! Taking advantage of super foods to super charge your day is an emphatic necessity. Our food supply has been so drained of nutrients due to genetic modification, chemicals/pesticides, and the manufacturing of lab created fake food like products that it's difficult to get authentic nutrition. 

Super foods are a great way to get a maximum health value on minimal amounts. I've done blog posts on my favorite superfoods before. There are several and truly there is debate about which foods should be classified as such. The foods are called super foods are named that way because their plant life hasn't been tainted like most crops.

Here is a favorite version of a super food smoothie that I love to drink. I'll list the basic benefits to each super food below. Try each super food out and see how they work in your body. Remember everyone is different. One person may do well with one food and another person may not react well to it at all.


3 Tbsp Hempseed
2 Tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
1/2 Tbsp Ground Ceylon Cinnamon
1/2 Tbsp Chia seeds
3 Medjool Dates
1 Handful Goji Berries
1 Tsp Spirulina
2 Inch Hunk Peeled Raw Ginger
1 Tbsp Organic Gelatinized Maca Powder
Pinch of Ground Organic Cayenne 
1 1/2 Cups Filtered Water
1 Cup Ice

Basic Run Down of Nutrition:

Hempseed: complete plant protein, healthy gamma linoleic acid (that's a good fat), fiber

Cacao: (this is raw chocolate) energy, antioxidants

Ceylon Cinnamon: not all cinnamons are equal, this is the cinnamon with the most medicinal value for being anti-inflammatory and regulating blood sugar, its also naturally sweet and delicious

Chia Seeds: energy, omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, calcium

Medjool Dates: healthy sugar, fiber, just plain yummy

Goji Berries: iron, protein, fiber, encourages HGH (human growth hormone: the youth factor) to grow, libido stimulator

Spirulina: calcium, complete protein, iron, very detoxifying 

Ginger: anti-inflammatory, soothing to the gut, immune boosting, naturally warming, vitamin C

Maca: Peruvian root best used gelatinized meaning lightly steamed over raw due to digest ability and absorption, balances hormones, nourishes hypothalamus, energy, libido stimulator

Cayenne: naturally warming, regulates blood pressure, can be a natural blood thinner, improves circulation

Let me know if you try this out! Truly everything in this smoothie is optional. Play...see what your body needs and does well with then drink it up! Be healthy, be blessed, and be a good steward!
