My body, my soul, my temple
by Bonnie Pockley
I don’t know about you but I’m a big fan of superfoods. Not only do they offer a greater level of nutrition but they also make eating well easy when you’re busy. We drink a lot of supersmoothies, using organic grass-fed whey protein as a base with various different things added in for flavour or for their tonic/ detoxifying / healing/ nutritional value. The usual suspects are Maca powder, raw Cocoa, MSM and Chia seeds. When I’m feeling a little worse for wear, I also drink Fijian Noni juice. Mostly it isn’t all of these at once. I’ll often choose flavours that compliment each other or stronger flavours to hide the more bitter MSM and Noni. Usually this means a combination of Maca, Chia seeds, blueberries, Greek yoghurt and stevia (a zero calorie natural sweetener) or Cocoa, MSM, stevia and almonds. Sometimes I’ll just make up a hot drink of Apple Cider Vinegar and MSM for a fast, effective blood cleanser and detoxifier. I add ice and Synergy Natural Super Greens to almost all my smoothies and experiment with new recipes and new products all the time. The important things to remember are to keep the sugar content very low (this includes the fructose in fruit), to only add water (never milk, juice or other foundational liquid) and to use a good quality protein powder – always an organic, grass-fed whey protein isolate. The brand I use and trust is TONIC SUPERFOODS.
