The Super Nutrient Drink I Use to Break-My-Fast

Last week I discussed how waiting to eat breakfast can actually train your body to become more fuel efficient, which contributes directly to greater levels of mental and physical energy. This week, I wanted to share with you what I eat almost every morning for what I still believe is the most important meal of the day.

While eggs and bacon or chard and sausage along with some almond/coconut flour pancakes may be a weekend brunch, I just can’t beat this super-nutrient-rich blender drink recipe for both its macronutrient (fat, protein, and carbohydrate) as well as its micronutrient (dense food concentrates) content.

Put the fat first.

These are the priority ingredients I’ll include in every drink:
1 TBL medium chain triglycerides (MCT) or warm coconut oil
1 TBL Udo’s 3:6:9 Essential Oil blend
12 ounces homemade coconut milk

Variations that I’ll occasionally include:
1 whole pastured egg
½ avocado
1 TBL olive oil

Then add protein....
I typically use anywhere from 16 to 24 grams of a mix that includes:

Rice protein (Sunwarrior Sprouted Rice blend) and/or
Hemp, pea, and cranberry protein (Sunwarrior Warrior blend) and
Hydrolyzed collagen (Great Lakes)

Occasionally, I’ll spice things up by using goat whey protein. (Mount Capra’s Deep 30)

The super nutrients come next.

2 scoops of Chocoberry Blast or Fruit-N-Veggie Might
1 tsp Maca powder

Some variations include:
1 tsp MSM powder
1 tsp liquid soil minerals (Angstrom)
Kale, beet, or carrot top greens
Freshly-grated ginger

Followed by a few carbohydrates…

for flavor—and for the additional fuel our cells need to keep the fat fire burning. Depending on my level of activity, this will typically range somewhere between 5 and 25 grams.  I’ll often use:

Baked sweet potato or packaged sweet potato powder
A cooked or raw red beet
1 or 2 carrots
1/4 cup frozen or fresh blueberries, strawberries, or apricots in season (right from the tree)
1/2 banana, fresh or frozen

And finally the fluid.

Add water and/or ice and blend away!

In coming weeks, I’ll send you a way you can easily make coconut milk at home for less than $1.00 a gallon (as opposed to $8.00 for store bought).  As a bonus, you’ll have left-over pulp for making great- tasting coconut squares.  Not a baker?  Use it as compost in your garden.

Just blend it and enjoy!
