How we begin our day, every day, sets us up for prolonged energy or a lack there of.
Breakfast is the first meal you eat each day. No matter what time you eat, it is still your “break fast.” What you eat is just as important as when you eat.
If you begin your day with nothing but carbohydrates (breakfast cereals, bagels, donuts, etc.) you are setting your body up for a blood sugar rush and then a plummet. PLUMMET = ENERGY DROP
When you begin your day with a high quality protein and some fiber it then allows your body to work efficiently and avoids that drop in energy and also avoids the spike in cravings.
Begin your day with a quality, plant based protein and you will find that you don’t get as hungry, early in the day, and that your energy levels are more stable, all day long! When you are a busy mom, like me, a fast smoothee is an amazing way to begin the day, giving me all day energy and it also gets me through to lunch without all the nasty cravings.

This is an amazing salad that even my husband will eat… His first response was “raw broccoli, ick” then he tasted it and was pleasantly surprised. The flavors of these ingredients melt together to give the perfect combination of flavor, texture, and pleasure in food.
It also contains a sugar, a fat, and a salt to help cause the brain to give you that “satisfied” feeling after you have tasted, chewed, and consumed it.
- 2-3 cups of finely chopped broccoli (I chop it tiny so you can get all the flavors in every bite.)
- 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
- 10 rounds of Canadian bacon (Less fat, no nitrates – I buy mine at Costco)
- 3/4 cup of raisins (I prefer organic green grape raisins)
- 3/4 cup of slivered almonds
- 1/2-3/4 cup olive oil mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup raw, organic sugar
- 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
I soak my broccoli in a solution of water & Basic H (two drops) to clean anything still on it.
I’ve chopped the Canadian bacon into small pieces, then added the finely chopped broccoli
Add the onion, raisins & almond slivers & mix.
Whisk together the mayo, organic raw sugar, & white wine vinegar.
Pour over the salad and mix well. It is best when you let it marinate for a bit before you eat it! FABULOUS treat! I like to keep this in the fridge to munch on throughout the week.
