Change your breakfast, change your life!
This morning’s client is typical of the many tired worn out people I see on a daily basis. It is only 11 a.m. and her energy levels are in her boots. She is young, goes to the gym, has the support of a loving family and friends, enjoys her job and on questioning there are no psychological issues to keep her shackled to exhaustion. We decide to scrutinise her diet.
Her nutritional intake seems OK except for her breakfast: rice bubbles with rice milk (she is dairy intolerant) most days and toast with honey and a cup of tea or coffee on other days. This confirms my fears and now I have to convince her that breakfast it the most important meal of the day. You can’t expect your cells to fire up and rocket you through the day on a breakfast of cardboard and sugar! The word breakfast stands for “breaking the fast”. Between 5 and 7 in the morning the body favours the stomach in terms of energy. This is peak time for the stomach, so why not fill the void with something that will give you a super-duper blast for the day, instead of sugars and cardboard, which will find you limp, hungry and peckish in an hour’s time and predispose you to diabetes, heart disease and cancer?
I am lucky because while I shamelessly enjoy a quiet snooze in the morning Peter is busy in the kitchen (I dull my conscience by telling myself that I gave him 6 beautiful children and breast fed for about 9 years, which saved him thousands of dollars so he is still working off his debt). If he doesn’t prepare us scrambled eggs with lots of butter and coconut oil he whips up a smoothie that is packed to the max with powerful antioxidants, enzymes, minerals and vitamins. After I down it I jump out of bed and am ready for the day. Neither Pete nor I need to stop for morning tea and we only need a small lunch and dinner.
So here is a version of the Purple House Smoothie that will nourish your cells with quality energy and turn you into a superhero at home or at work:
Breakfast for two
Blend together in a blender:
- Two raw organic eggs -fresh from the chook is best ( note: when sampling your Purple House smoothie at Alchemy Cafe it is minus the raw eggs due to government regulations)
- Four tablespoons of full cream plain yoghurt
- Two desert spoons of flax seed oil
- Two desert spoons of coconut oil
- Two scoops of Bioraculous
- Two sachets of Percy’s Powders
- Half a teaspoon of Relief powder ( a ginger/turmeric superblend)
- Half a green apple (green is less sugar)
- Walnuts, chia seeds
- Flax seeds after they have been soaked overnight
- Soaked almonds
- Prunes or prune juice
- Aloe Vera juice
- Berries or any other healthy food you may have in your pantry.
- 1 teaspoon of Diatomaceous Earth to kill off potential parasites
- Pinch of boron to keep bones strong
- Pinch of Himalayan Salt
It only takes a minute to make and is the perfect start for a busy day. You may be wondering why flax seed oils and yoghurt? Flax seed oil is nature’s richest source of Omega 3, is gluten free and suitable for vegetarians, has up to 50% more Omega 3 than fish oil and is essential for good health and wellbeing. Flax seed oil contains the right balance of Omega 3, 6 and 9 and this essential for good health. All our cell membranes are made up of fats and when you consider that your body is nothing more than trillions of cells, that is a lot of fats. Good oils and fats are every bit as important as proteins, vitamins and minerals. The brain is also 60% fat and these days 22% of the population is prone to Alzheimer’s which is partly a consequence of low fat diets.
When you mix the flax seed oil with Yoghurt or cottage cheese it becomes a miracle cure for cancer. The high quality electron rich fats (omega 3 and 6) are combined with the sulphur in the proteins of the yoghurt/cottage cheese. This brings oxygen inside oxygen starved cells. (Any cell which is starved of 60% of its oxygen will become cancerous) A state of increased oxygen within the cell improves your blood, health and energy levels. Dr Johanna Budwig is famous for discovering that the blood sample of cancer patients was always deficient in essential fatty acids and she came up with the combination of flax seed oil and Quark (similar to yoghurt and cottage cheese) to prevent or cure cancer. Once the cancer cells were able to breathe again, thanks to her recipe, the cells lost their cancerous properties and became healthy once more.
Coconut oil supports the thyroid and protects the heart and arteries. It is also meant to stave off Alzheimer’s. The liver converts coconut oil into energy without any fuss and it speeds up your metabolism.
Bioraculous is totally packed with anti-aging, mind sharpening powers created by a combination of super greens, berries, fruits, spices, vegetables, enzymes and probiotics. One scoop contains 5 to 9 daily servings of fruits and vegetables. It is full of anti-oxidants which squelch free radical activity. Free radicals are unstable or pre-cancerous cells which drain your energy and are the main cause of aging. One serving covers your daily need of anti-oxidants. The super-greens convert easily into healthy blood and so Bioraculous is also excellent for anaemia or any other blood disorder. The enzymes and pro-biotics keep your bowels healthy and regular.
Organic eggs are an excellent source of proteins and are packed with life giving nutrients, are beneficial for heart health and weight management.
Percy’s Powders are a mixture of specific mineral sulphates to prevent and cure cancer, arthritis and other chronic diseases and to keep the body working in optimum health.
Chia and linseeds as well as walnuts contain good levels of Omega 3 essential fatty acids and fall under the category of super-foods. They also add fibre, calcium, potassium, amino acids, proteins, vitamin B’s, magnesium and phosphorous, iron and zinc to your diet.
This delicious liquefied breakfast smoothie will help your body toss out sad old tired cells and step by step, morning after morning, create new cells which are packed with energy. It only takes the body 3 months to completely renew every cell in your blood and up to 3 months to create a new liver! Your body will love and reward you by giving you high energy levels and a consistently happy mood.
