Good Morning Elixir

We love a super food.  Such promise of goodness, of wellness, of a better life.  Once we began to give our Health + Wellness pillar real attention, we were introduced to all kinds of new ideas about what to put in our bodies to make them sing. This one is a favorite.

We asked our nutritionist, Bridgette Becker of Taproot Energetics, for a morning ritual that would start our day off in alignment with our dreams. Here is her morning elixir. For Sheri, this is a substitute for coffee and doubles as a protein smoothie. For Nancy, it’s a warm breakfast smoothie. Two cups of this will hold you over till noon.

The first few times you make it, you might think it’s complicated, but stick with it friends. Once you’re in the groove it is easy breezy.

Pillar tip  

Put the dry ingredients together the night before in your blender and have everything else out on the counter at the ready.  Each batch makes enough for two days.
