The Wild Green Bio-Photon smoothie, Basic Recipe
Two cups of chopped up wild green leaves such as nettles, dandelions, horsetails, or wild spinach are placed in a mixer with two cups of water and blended at high speed.
The juice is then poured through a sieve and mixed with the juice from one lemon or orange. You can also add a banana or other fruit, 3 or 4 dried figs, or ½ cup of frozen raspberries also work well. If you like it more sweet tasting, you can add ½ teaspoon of stevia concentrate and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon.
Add two tablespoons of soaked flax seeds (omega 3 fatty acids) and two tablespoons of the Phyto-Micromineral Primal-Essence. Blend.
Drink it for breakfast or take it to work for your lunch break.
The Wild Green Bio-photon Smoothie with Raw Cocoa Beans
For a more concentrated smoothie, blend two cups of chopped leaves of wild plants with 1 cup of water, but do not pour through a sieve (this does not work with horsetails because they are too fibrous and need to be filtered). This requires a powerful mixer. The Tribest Personal Blender or Vitamix works wonders. Then add 2 tablespoons of soaked flax seeds (omega 3 fatty acids), 3 tablespoons of coconut flakes, 10 raw cocoa beans, ½ teaspoon of stevia concentrate, as well as two tablespoons of the microminerals and blend.
Then top off the smoothie with ½ cup of berries in season or some frozen raspberries. Chew this smoothie slowly. Sometimes it helps to throw in a few sunflower seeds so we don't gulp it down so fast. Digestion begins in the mouth and there are a huge amount of concentrated nutrients that need processing.
Make this smoothie your breakfast and you won't need a mufin at midmorning, when most people's blood sugar begins to crash. You will be able to sail through all those coffee breaks. You can skip the high carb intake at breakfast. In fact, we found that the smoothie has the potential to power you up for the whole day. You could easily skip lunch and cut some calories from your daily food intake by having this smoothie in the morning. One main meal in the evening would be completely sufficient. Lunch will become redundant.
"When I take my smoothie in the morning, I go the rest of the day without any food at all, only drinking Ayurvedic vata tea and water. I am totally powered up. This is basically a 24 hour fast, where I rest my digestive organs and give them a chance to detox. The fast turns on youthing genes which keep you young. On these fast days I get a tremendous amount of creative work done while writing and studying." Dr. Switzer
The trick to this is to get up in the morning, drink some tea and/or water and wait until around 10 a.m. before you drink the green smoothie. According to Ayurveda, 10 a.m. is the time when our metabolism starts to rev up, making it easier to digest food. The smoothie with its rich blend of cocoa, pro-biotic bee pollen, green leaves, coconut and fruit (frozen or fresh raspberries work great!) should be savored and enjoyed! Remember, we are talking about a food that is fit for the gods, a modern day manna for perfect health!
