Breakfast of Champions for

Spring Training!

by Michelle M Pearson


Let’s face it, most people skip breakfast, eat on the run, or grab a quick unhealthy choice to start their day! Breaking the fast of all night without food is an essential step in healing, for increasing your stamina and energy, and for getting the gut healthy as well.

So today, as we visit our theme of “Spring” topics again, we will add Spring Training to the list and deliver a power-packed new smoothie recipe to you – it’s ideal for athletes and the rest of the population as well!

This very quick smoothie is a doable healthy and delicious shake for folks who enjoy… chocolate! Yes, real organic cocoa is used in the ssh…  greens mixture! How perfect is that??

As a quick review, these are the components one should include in a healthy shake, which means it doesn’t come from a can or a package:

  • Essential Fatty Acids – to build-up the tissues, cell structure, and total health of the vascular system. These are delivered in a strategic vehicle of sulfur-rich protein that ensures entry into the body’s cell structures. No other delivery system is as successful in getting these EFA’s into active assimilation, providing as much as a 95% increase in bio-availability (usability) of these EFA’s! 
  • Fiber – especially important in the morning to cleanse the entire GI Tract, acting like an internal broom to clean out the waste and toxins discarded through the night’s healing and maintenance cycles.
  • Anti-oxidants – to assist the body in repairing and renewing, youthful anti-aging properties to promote health and healing in the heart and other organs.
  • Carbohydrates – high-quality and low-glycemic sources provide glucose and short-term energy to get you up and running in the morning… instead of stimulants!
  • Protein – a long-term source of energy that will carry you through the morning hours without lag or dips in energy and blood sugar, which balances the glycemic index of the breakfast.
  • Greens – lots of green leafy and cruciferous vegetables to alkalize the body and oxygenate the cells (Just what you wanted for breakfast, right? Hold on, in the recipe below, you’ll never notice we sneaked them in!)

Sound like a lot to eat for breakfast? We have made it super-easy and quick – you can even take it with you! This recipe gives you complete nutrition to start your valuable day of enjoying life and serving others!

Here’s the how-to for:

The Picture of Health Spring Training Smoothie

4 ounces cottage cheese or quark
4 T flax oil

Combine these two first before any other additions, then add to the blender.

* It is crucial to do this first, apart from other steps – this step is what makes the flax available for the body’s use. Do not skip, change, or substitute ingredients of this step. (To consume flax oil without mixing in quark or cottage cheese reduces it’s availability to the body to 5% at best! In other words, you are wasting your money and efforts to consume it otherwise.)


6-8 ounces almond milk – NO soy – use plain, vanilla, or chocolate

1 frozen banana
1 scoop Barlean’s Greens Chocolate Silk (fantastic new product!) 

The above recipe is the basic smoothie. For extra energy, if you are in sports training, you can try any or all of these additions: (add a bit more almond milk if you do because they add thickness.)

1-2 T of Almond Butter

1/2 cup Oats

1T Wheat Germ

Optional: 1T melted Coconut Oil – added slowly through the top while blender is whirling.

Combine ingredients in the blender, pulse to combine, then blend on high until smooth.

Makes a generous serving for one. Enjoy and eat it all.

That’s SUPER FOOD for Spring Training of our Picture of Health Champions!
