The Trinity Smoothie
The latest science has found that in order to reverse chronic and autoimmune conditions, we simply must eat healthy. Duh!
But it's hard eating healthy.
And it can be confusing.
So I designed The Trinity Smoothie to make it easy for you. I drink this myself every day without fail, and it's made a powerful difference in my life. I couldn't live without it and be well.
There are companies providing "diet shakes", but there are none that are truly healthy. All of them are processed so they lose nutrients in that process, plus most contain toxic preservatives, sugar, whey protein, and many other inflammatory ingredients.
Since inflammation is the cause of most disease, this is counter-intuitive. These drinks, while easy, are actually creating chronic inflammation and disease.
The Trinity Smoothie combines the latest science of Functional Nutrition, gut microbiome health, biochemistry and neurochemistry in a delicious, whole food, natural drink.
And you can make it yourself at home in about 5 minutes every morning. Now, we all have 5 minutes to give our bodies what they need each day.
The Trinity Smoothie gives your body the 3 nutrients we all need:
1. 8-10 cups of veggies (What?! Yes, that's right. You need it)
2. Clean protein
3. Healthy fats
The Trinity Smoothie provides these essential nutrients in the right combination, plus powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxident polyphenol ingredients to help fight and prevent disease. In fact, this recipe is so powerful, that combined with the right diet for your specific genetics, it can help you to reverse chronic illness and autoimmune disease.
Believe it. Food is information -- the building blocks for healthy cell and genetic functioning.
Food truly is medicine.
Want to obliterate your cravings? Science has discovered that it's eating the "trinity" of nutrients together, every time you eat, that reduces food cravings dramatically.
Why? Because it creates "satisfaction" neurochemicals that tell your brain, "Ahhh, I'm satisfied. I don't need anything else." When we feel like this, we don't crave sugar and processed carbs (the most inflammatory, disease producing substances).
The trick is to eat the "trinity" in the right combination -- every time we eat -- to keep our satisfaction neurochemicals high. Never eat nutrients in isolation as this sets you up for diet failures, and we've all been there.
This really works! Simply do a Trinity Smoothie fast for 3-5 days, and your cravings will disappear. Drink as much of it as you want so you are full. Believe me, your body won't be missing anything it needs. Then you can easily move on to eating a more healthy, anti-inflammatory diet without the cravings.
But not only will your cravings disappear... your energy will increase! If you stop eating inflammatory foods, your pain will decrease. Your brain fog will go away. Your mood will improve. Your gut will start its natural healing process. There are so many benefits to eating right!
And it's important to remember, there's no "one-sized-fits-all" diet, no matter what the internet says. Your perfect diet can be determined with simple, inexpensive Functional Nutrition testing that looks at your genetics, your gut microbiome, and your food sensitivities. As a research scientist and Functional Nutritionist, I can help you find your perfect diet, and never be confused over food again.
You'll finally be successful at eating healthy, and best of all, you'll feel great!
So, here's the recipe. (You're welcome!)
Do not skimp on your ingredients... this drink will be the basis of your health each day. Your ingredients need to be 100% organic without exception, or you'll just be adding toxicants that destroy your gut health with every swallow. Your gut health is what keeps you healthy, or makes you sick, so be sure to make your Trinity Smoothie clean.
You'll need a great blender... not a cheapy one. I love the VitaMix. They are pricey but they really make the smoothest smoothies! I've also used the Ninja, but it's not as smooth.
Fill your blender about 1/2 way with half water and half either coconut or almond milk (without sugar or additives).
Veggies: Add 8-10 cups of colorful veggies, with the skins on. Five to six cups of these should be dark green leafy veggies... not lettuce. Kale, spinach, chard are good choices so long as your genetics agree. (Get your genetics tested to know for sure... give me a call and I'll help you with this).
Include red beets, purple cabbage, celery, brocolli, carrots, whatever you find. The more colors, the better.
Do not wash your veggies... if there's a little dirt, just wipe off the excess and throw them in. The dirt actually has millions of natural probiotics that keep your gut healthy.
Protein: Add about 1/2 cup of nuts -- all nuts are good except peanuts. (Again, your genetics and specific food allergies play an important role... call me for help in determining which foods are best for your body). If you cannot do nuts, use an organic plant-based protein powder without whey, sugar or additives. Or you can also use chia or hemp seeds.
Fats: Add about 1/2 cup of olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil or coconut cream. You may also add a whole avocado, and a few tablespoons of Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil (great for energy). If you have loose bowels or do not have your gall bladder, start slow with the fats and build your way up.
1/4 teaspoon pure organic stevia powder (not stevia blends). I find mine on Amazon.
A few shakes of Himalayan Pink Salt, and a few shakes of ground black pepper.
A "thumb" sized piece of both ginger and turmeric roots. Don't peel, just throw them in whole. These are powerful superfoods to fight inflammation and pain, heal gut issues, prevent cancer, and more.
Polyphenols: A cup of frozen berries or an apple provide these essential nutrients your body needs to fight inflammation and pain. You can also add a cup of green tea.
That's it! Blend it all up and add water to make it smooth. Drink the entire blender full each day to get your allotment of nutrients in (you can't fool your biochemistry... if it doesn't get in your belly, it's not working).
Drink this as your basic nutrition morning, noon, and night, or anytime you get a little hungry or are craving. Add other anti-inflammatory foods on top of this "basic" nutrition.
Note: Raw veggies are an important part of every healthy diet. However, if you suspect you may have SIBO/SIFO or other issues that make eating raw veggies difficult, you will need to work with a functional nutritionist to reverse this issue before using The Trinity Smoothie.
Eating healthy can be confusing, but with the help of a Functional Nutritionist, you can finally get it right, feel great, and prevent or even reverse chronic illness.
