Primed Green Breville Smoothies Rock.

I love a great Primed Green Smoothie for breakfast, lunch and even dinner.

A great blender is important and the best I have used is from Breville.

Ingredients:

  • Cool, super efficient Breville blender 
  • Lots of greens like spinach, mustard greens etc. Use what is local and fresh
  • Aloe vera (we have aloe vera on our verandah and it grows easily)
  • Lemon juice
  • Fresh chopped Ginger
  • Saba banana (optional because the more bitter the better!)
  • Malunggay powder from Rasco’s called Rasco’s Moringa. See this cool link on Moringa
  • Spices of turmeric & pepper

Primed Dr. Annabelle Nutrient Loaded Green Smoothie

I am inspired, excited and delighted. Dr. Annabelle is rocking it.

Yes, there are improvements to be made but wonderful results are eye-popingly obvious.

I personally noticed the following:

  • Looks at least 10 to 15 years younger;
  • Glowing skin;
  • More vibrancy in her eyes and demeanor; and
  • Confidence in the Primed program and knows her next steps for continued improvements.

Dr. Annabelle said:

  • A lot more energy;
  • Improved sleep;
  • Less aches and pains;
  • Constant blood sugar levels of less than 100 (means less inflammation);
  • Happier with peace of mind regarding her nutrition;
  • No rice at all but needs to totally eliminate grains which she finds addictive;
  • People are noticing her increased zest for life;
  • People commenting that she looks very healthy; and
  • Her memory is improving. Wow. That’s huge.
  • Oh, also building her immune system to better fight disease and illness.

 

I am dedicating this Primed Annabelle Green Smoothie to Annabelle. She ROCKS.

Primed Chewy Green Smoothie

This great Primed Chewy Smoothie is in honor of Chewy. He is the cute dog pictured below. Just looking at him makes you smile.

I named it Primed Chewy Smoothie because the only way you can “drink” it is to chew. It is actually delicious with a creamy coconut finish that is made even better knowing how well I am feeding my body and mind. I had my Primed Chewy Green Smoothie before a lunch meeting with a potential Corporate Wellness client because I wanted the nutrition to better fuel my positive energy and thoughts.

Remember that for proper digestion you must chewy your food well.

Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee with Coconut Milk

I love a nice Primed Coffee. It is either a double espresso or a Primed Iced Coffee in the Philippines heat.

I even made sure to have a Primed Iced Coffee waiting for me in my fridge after my Malaysian Ironman and Melbourne Ironman. This great drink served a dual purpose as: (a) A drink to look forward to after the race; and (b) To aid my recovery due to the great fats in the coconut milk.

Ingredients 1: Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee

Iced  Cinnamon Coffee ingredients

6 teaspoons of coffee
1/2 glass of home-made coconut milk
2 glasses of water
ground cinnamon spice
ice cubes

We use cinnamon sticks bought from an Indian grocery shop along Jupiter Street and then grind them in our grinder. You can also buy the cinnamon shaker from the spice rack where you normally shop.

It is Very Easy to Make your Own Coconut Milk

See how easy here.

Ingredients 2: Iced Coffee with Coconut Sugar

Iced Coffee ingredients

6 teaspoons of coffee
1/2 glass of coconut milk
2 glasses of water
coconut sugar to taste (or quality honey) – both optional only
ice cubes

Method:

Pretty simple of course but I dissolve my coffee in a little hot water, add ice cubes, add coconut milk, add cinnamon (or coconut sugar or both) and add water. Then stir and serve. Easy, yet delicious and nutritious.

It is an excellent accompaniment for a Primed breakfast.

Iced Coffee Breakfast

Eggs and bacon are always a favorite in the morning with my Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee.

Equally fabulous is chicken thigh topped with tomato and grilled cheese on a bed of chili zucchini “noddles” with my Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee.

The health benefits of Coconut Milk are very long and far reaching.

Coconut Oil Rocks Too

I often have a shot of Virgin Coconut Oil before having my Primed Iced Coffee. If I have my coffee hot then I put the shot into my black coffee with a splash of coconut milk.

Friendly advice: Do not add coconut oil to your Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee. It becomes solid and is not easy or pleasant to drink cold. I have made this very mistake before. Twice!

Coconut liquid breakfast

Having a delicious Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee is very filling and satisfying and can even serve as a meal replacement for breakfast if you wanted to slowly ease yourself into Regular Intelligent Fasting and experience the unique health benefits associated with it.

Some other great reasons to fast include the way it helps regulate your insulin as explained in this fabulous graph provided by Washington Dr. Ted Naiman from Burn Fat Not Sugar.

Dr. Ted’s graph is backed up by the slide of Canadian Dr. Jason Fung who cures his patients of their Type 2 Diabetes.

Please let me know if you like this Primed Coffee and your variation on it.

Cheers.
