Stress, Nutrition, Healing…

I read this post by Dani Walker, a Wellness Advocate and Restaurant Owner, who plainly explains what Oxidative Stress is, what it does to your body, and how to combat it. I encourage you to check out the full post here. You can start fighting Oxidative Stress and the build-up of free radicals in your body by adding more raw foods (especially greens) into your daily diet.  Dani, who runs an amazing fresh foods only restaurant, Calderas, in Joseph OR, offers a yummy smoothie recipe – Pacman Smoothie – within the full blog post. My smoothie (below) – which I have for breakfast nearly every single day! –  is very similar, but I use soy milk and add protein powder. I swear by fresh spinach (or chlorella) – gives me amazing energy that lasts all day.

Creamy Banana Pudding Smoothie
Blend following ingredients
1/2 frozen banana
1.5 cup soy milk (less milk if you want a really thick, yummy treat!)
1 cup fresh spinach leaves or 1-2 teaspoons of chlorella
1 teaspoon ground flax-seed
1 scoop protein powder
Optional – add blueberries
