My Favorite Smoothie

I try to make it to the gym at least a few times a week. Being mom to two young kids, I don't have time to waste. So, when I'm there, I work. I work hard. Running, weights, the whole shebang. After my workout I always crave water and protein. This smoothie is the best of both worlds. I don't buy into protein powders. I haven't come across a protein powder tree anywhere in nature yet, have you? I trust plants more than powder. Raw egg yolks from pastured hens are a wonderful source of protein, vitamins and minerals. I always feel strong and energized after this smoothie.

Post Workout Smoothie

2 leaves romaine lettuce
handful of spinach
frozen blueberries
frozen strawberries
1-2 tbsp whole flax
1 raw egg yolk (never ever from a grocery store hen, only a pastured organic hen!)
enough coconut water to get everything moving

Blend and feel your energy lift!


  1. I've been going through a huge stash of VitaCoco water that I have in my pantry right now. Once that is gone, I will start looking around to see what company I feel most comfortable with.

  2. Since we are starting on the Body Ecology Diet, I will be using tons of coconut water soon!
