Salted Caramel Superfood Frappuccino

When one is craving a hit of something sweet and salty one downs a salted caramel something or other. That used to be one of my fave treats from Starbucks and no more. My version has 16 grams of protein, probiotics, adaptagens, super foods like maca root, chia and goji berry (to name  a few of the 70) and the vitamin equivalent of 5 dense green bowls of salads.

Beet, Carrot, Apple, Ginger Smoothie

I’ve had quite a few friends ask me to start up a smoothie index here so here we are. Since I’m doing a 10 day smoothie cleanse, it would seem the perfect time.

I had a mild cold last week, yet another germy spread from Abby’s daycare no doubt. I thought I was done for, yet two days after making this my morning smoothie, my system seemed to realign itself very quickly.

Maybe it was just a mild cold, maybe this fresh, invigorating and healing combo helped do the trick. I’m going with the latter, given that I do indeed prescribe to the *FACT* that food is medicine.
