Blending your food is a great way to get nutrition into you that is easy on the digestion, yet can still tickle the taste bud.
If you think about it, the body has to use a lot of energy to breakdown food, to make it available for the blood to deliver it to your working muscles and systems. When you blend foods, the blender does the work for you - and you have a conmcentrated source of fresh, whole foods in a liquid state. Here's how to go about it:
1. Get yourself a good blender, a good one.
2. Get yourself some good organic ingredients that you enjoy and know do well on. My tip would be to get the blanace between proteins / fats and carbs, based on how you best metabilize food (metabolism is a term to decribe the process in which we turn food into energy and your metabolic type is the food you metablize best. An easy way to tell if you've had too many carbs is your energy will feel a little racey and unstable. If you have had too much protien, you'll feel sluggish). As always, health is about finding blance. With that in mind, I would go easy on the fruit (2 maximum), to avoid access sugar (while fruit contains healthy antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, it is high in sugar, which feeds fungus and parasites in the body and can bring instability to both your energy and your acid alkaline levels). Pick whatever fruits are in season that you like. I like bananas, mangos, papaya, rockmelon, blueberries and pear. For your fats and protiens, I reccomend these options (LSA, raw eggs, fish oils, avacado, nuts and seeds, spirulina, kale or hemp). I try to stay away from anything processed (including protein powders), as your body is a natural and live organism - and doesn't recognize or like synthetic products. It is also great to have some raw vegetables in your shakes, like Kale, one of the most nutritious foods known to man. If your belnder is powerful enough, you can even throw in beets, carrots... anything. As your base, I recomend these options (almond or rice milk, water, organic milk - if you do well on it, or coconut water. I use coconut water and then scoop the flesh into the shake too. You can also add some extras, like green formulas, cocoa, hemp, maca powder etc.
Shake options (my top 3)
1. Green machine: coconut water and flesh, kale, spirulina, LSA, avocado, banana, pear
2. Post work-out: Coconut water and flesh, banana, papaya or mango, 2 raw eggs, cocoa powder, LSA, avocado
3. Inner child: Rice milk, banana, cocoa, dates, eggs, avacado
