Being on the Harvard campus again has taken some adjusting. In the past 2 or 3 weeks I got very sick a couple of times. So I’ve redoubled my efforts to dump good things into my body for energy and health.
This smoothie substitute I randomly made up gives me a jump start in the morning and long-lasting energy throughout the day. I also find it hard to stomach solids first thing, so a drinkity liquidy breakfast is perfect. It’s simple and quick to make:
(1) Emergen-C – 1 packet
(2) Protein powder – 1/2 to 1 spoonful
I learned from this website to get one with whey and casein (for short and long term energy release). Check out the website for info on what to avoid too. I got this “Bluebonnet Dual-Action Protein Whey + Casein” from amazon.com.
(3) Wheat grass – 1/4 to 1/2 spoonful
Be conservative with the grass. Too much can ruin the taste of the drink. I got this “AmaZing Grass Organic Wheat Grass” from Whole Foods.
(4) Water – about 8oz
(Mix the powder before adding water!)
And the smoothinator is born …
It might look a bit like goop, but it’s definitely worth drinking. And if you get the ingredient proportions right it actually tastes nice. It’ll keep you regular too ; )
