Fortunately, the most important meal of the day also happens to be my favorite. In fact, I eat two breakfasts every day -- one when I rise and one mid morning. My husband says I'm like the Hobbits in the Lord of the Rings, who eat numerous meals throughout the day. I guess I just need a steady flow of nutrition, and in the morning, even more so.
My second breakfast is a smoothie loaded with nutrients, antioxidants and probiotics. While it's nourishing to the body, it's also a beauty elixir. Best of all it's delicious! It's made with kefir -- a cultured, enzyme-rich food filled with friendly micro-organisms. It's more nutritious and therapeutic than yogurt. It supplies vital minerals, valuable B vitamins, and all of the essential amino acids from protein, according towww.kefir.net.
8 oz. plain Kefir (I prefer organic Helios) 2 oz. concord grape juice 1 cup frozen berries (heavy on the blueberries) 2 tsp agave nectar 1 tbsp coconut oil or coconut cream concentrate 2 tbsp flaxseed (freshly ground is better)
