Summer’s Not Over! Try Adding Sun Protection To Your Breakfast


School used to start after labor day, this year it was the second week of August!  The transition from summer hols to school has been a tough one, but one way we found to ease into the day has been a delicious, slurp in the car, breakfast smoothie.
Knowing the kids are going to be on the playground in the middle of the day in the blazing sun I figure if I start their day with a tummy full of skin protecting and repairing antioxidants, as well as some brain fueling omega 3s they are off to a good start.
Every day the smoothie is a little different but I try to include some of these 2 groups along with whatever fruit and veg is on hand.
Skin Savers:
Brain Food:
  • Walnuts
  • Ground flaxmeal
  • Avocado
Smoothie Basics
  • 1 tsp raw cocoa nibs (great source of magnesium + calcium, iron, copper, zinc and potassium)
  • 1 tbsp cashew/peanut/almond butter
  • ½ banana (fronzen in chunks)
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen strawberries/blueberries/raspberries
  • ½ apple ½ peach
  • Almond milk or apple juice to tasteAdditional items I might throw in
  • 1 carrot
  • ½ stick celery
  • ¼ sweet bell pepper (make sure you don’t add any spicy seeds)
  • 1 tsp green food powder
