Anika's Homemade Protein Shake

Many people at work ask me if I take happy pills, due to my tendency to smile. I know that part of this energy I have shines through due to my diet and my spiritual program. One thing that sets my morning off right is my breakfast protein shake. Remember that our bodies are detoxing from the hours of 4AM-12PM so it is helpful to eat raw during these hours so that the body can perform detoxification at its optimum level.

1 cup cold filtered water
1 banana (frozen or refrigerated is a great option too!)
1 TBSP bee pollen
1 TBSP maca powder
1 TBSP raw coconut oil

1. Blend in a blender and drink away!

Amaranth is pseudocereal, meaning a broadleaf plant being used much the same as a grain. Amaranth is in the gluten free family and has the highes amount of fiber, calcium, protein and iron in its class.  Amaranth is great for those that have internal dampness as it causes a heating effect within the body. Adding cinnamon also enhances the body's ability to "dry out."
