ice.
Blend all in your Vita-mix and enjoy. This makes a really large smoothy.
I was fascinated with all these super foods and finally learning about them and what they can contribute to your body. I have included links so you to can learn more about each of the things above, you might not know anything about:
BEE POLLEN: is said to contain every know nutrient your body needs. Helps benefit your immune system, build resistance to allergies, cope with stress, and increase energy.
RAW CACOA: unprocessed chocolate contains a large amount of antioxidents and promote cardiovascular health.
HEMP SEEDS: differs from the leafs (marijuana). Hemp seeds do not contain THC, the substance that makes one "high." Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids our body needs and is the perfect balance of omega-6 and omega-3 that our body needs.
GOJI BERRIES: "nature's perfect engery fruit."
CHIA SEEDS: these little things are amazing! They help with energy, detoxification, stabalizing blood sugar, heart healthy and soo much more.
MACA. Maca helps calm the nerves, aids in digestion and helps support the adrenal glands.
You should be able to purchase all of these at your local health food store. If not, you can click on my amazon link to purchase the ones I have found at great prices!
ENJOY!
