I begin. most days with a smoothie. Why? It is an easy way to incorporate seasonally available fruit(or frozen organic fruit such as berries) and other healthy ingredients. Other than summer and fall when fresh local fruit is available, it's the primary way I enjoy fruit. Because of my digestion, I don't do well with heavy protein in the morning and I try to not mix fruit with protein(with the exception of a little collagen powder). Fruit contains a lot of fibre and for my digestion, and perhaps yours as well, I need to have it first thing in the morning to feel better throughout the day. One thing I almost always incorporate into my smoothies is ginger, a great anti-inflammatory. If you are able try to find organic ginger. I've noticed that it tastes much better than conventional ginger and it seems to last much longer. I always make at least 2 servings so one smoothie is ready to go in the fridge for the next morning. Be sure to store in glass jars.
Place all of your ingredients in a high speed blender and blend for at least 2 minutes or until smooth. Since this makes 2 large servings you can place one serving in a glass jar with a lid until the next day.
