Now, heres my challenge. One person that I am coaching is more raw then I am! ..determined to be 100% for at least a month to test this. So, I am inspired.. and putting away those 80%+ treats (mainly truffles and chocolate) that I like to indulge in. Chocosol makes a few pure raw chocolate varieties - raw vanilla and Sawako snow - going to try both those as an (almost) hot chocolate for us.
Another issue is that we discovered that Vega protein powder, which I had suggested, is not completely raw..a friend of Brendan's told me he thought about 80-90% raw. So for an alternative smoothie idea I called my Mom, who drinks a lot of smoothies and has quite a smoothie routine down.
I usually just have greens and fruit and maybe some flax seeds in mine.
Here's what she drinks in hers.
She has 2 favorite combos, a morning one and an afternoon one.
Greens – e.g. spinach/parsley/baby greens
Hemp protein powder (or hemp seeds)
Ground flax &/or chia seeds
taken with Digestive enzymes
Black sesame seeds
There are so many smoothie combinations.
Creating an incredible smoothie combination for your first meal of the day can be a perfect way to get lots of greens and superfoods in. That way it feels like your nutritional intake is covered and anything else you have during the day is just bonus.
