Morning Berry SmoothieLet’s face it, the American diet is terrible. Rarely do any of us eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables; instead, we reach for what’s quick and easy—packaged food and fast food—which have been so over-processed that their nutrients have long been destroyed. The reality is, we’re running our bodies on empty. WE NEED MORE FUEL, GOOD FUEL. Not empty-calorie junk.

For the past week, I have been adding a superstar ingredient called Shakeology into my morning routine.

Food For Thought — I used East Wind Almond Butter. It is made from Mission variety almonds. Their buyers secure the best tasting almonds from mature groves in northern California. They never purchase almonds sprayed with PPO and their growers provide certificate of analysis to ensure the quality of the almonds.
