Drink Your Superfruit
While you should always keep your kitchen stocked with a tasty variety of fresh fruit, the best way to get the power of the superfruits into your daily diet is through whole-food powdered concentrates. Toss with some ice and soymilk into a blender and voila!—you’ve got a great smoothie.
Green foods—with their rich stores of protein,
minerals, fiber and chlorophyll—are a nutritional powerhouse. The
problem is that many people a) don’t know how to cook them or b) don’t
like the flavor. But throwing them into a juicer along with foods that
are a bit more palate-friendly allows you to easily access green
nutrition in a concentrated form. Complementary foods, such as
watermelon, tomatoes and bananas, can balance out the taste of your
shakes while adding valuable nutrients of their own.
Shake It Up
Looking for non-meat sources of protein? Why not try a soy protein shake? Easy to make with just a simple can of protein powder and some soymilk from your local health food store, shakes are a quick, convenient, low-fat way to get your necessary protein. Available in practically any flavor you dream up, you can custom design your protein shake to add more nutritional punch. Throw in your favorite fruits and enjoy some antioxidant benefits, too.
