Sprouted Berry Smoothie
During my week long cleanse, I created a new smoothie favorite, stocked full of vitamins and minerals, fiber, essential fatty acids, and a whapping good dose of plant based protein! It tasted so delicious you would never know that I put three romaine leaves and a handful of clover sprouts into the mix…it was just that good. Now, after my 100% raw food cleanse, I even add a single hard-boiled egg making it a hearty filling breakfast for any busy weekday morning. I realized that my raw foods cleanse was pretty low in choline, a vitamin that plays a very important role in DNA synthesis, detoxification, brain and nervous system activity, and helps keep our cellular membranes healthy. Lucky for me, eggs happen to be a great source, offering 34% of your daily choline needs. Plus, I was just really, really missing the flavor of my pasture-raised chicken eggs…the yolk is to die for!
Sprouts, on the other hand, are a nutrient dense, yet calorically light, addition to any smoothie, salad, sandwich, or wrap. Not only are sprouted beans and legumes easier to digest because your removing phytic acid, but it’s also a fun way to add more plant based protein to your meal. Having sprouts grow on your kitchen counter, just makes you feel good. Within days you reap the benefits of your little garden. And the best thing of all is that it is amazingly easy to make your own! And cheaper! Click here to learn more on how to sprout your own lentils and here to sprout your own clover.
