Transcript of Starting your Day with Smoothies

Starting your Day with Smoothies
Add ins
Protein powders - Pea or Hemp are the most hypoallergenic, whey is good for those without a dairy allergy
Powdered greens/Spirulina - for those who can't convince themselves to eat enough veggies
Fish oil - a good way to hide the texture
Ground seeds - fiber and healthy fats
Antioxidant powders - again great for people who don't eat a lot of plant matter or who have a lot of inflammation.
Macha - this is a hormone balancing herb, and should be used under the care of a trained doctor (ND).
I'm Dr. Currey, a naturopathic doctor practicing in Gresham and Clackamas Oregon.

Carbohydrate - fruits and vegetables
Protein - yogurt, powder, nut butters, tofu

Common Mistakes
Adding too many veggies too quickly, you need to let your taste buds adapt.
Adding too much sugar, do start with sweeteners, but overtime reduce the amount.
Letting the smoothy sit too long - it will coagulate - especially if you add blueberries or ground flax/chia seeds.
Making too much
Forgetting it on the counter on your way out the door.
