Amazing shakes

First of all... THANK YOU for all of your kind and encouraging comments! I can't tell you how much it means to me to read all of your posts.

Today is Day 2.

Today's Morning Shake:
Becky's Morning Shake
8 ounces of water
3-4 ounces unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 of an avocado
2 teaspoons organic almond butter
a pinch of sea salt
1 scoop Amazing Meal (vanilla chai)
1T flaxseed meal
1t agave nectar

Teence of nutmeg for taste

This shake is very different. We added the nutmeg to the recipe... which I can really taste this morning. The consistency is great; very smooth and creamy.

Last night's dinner shake:
Mango Cardamom Blast
2 ripe mangoes, peeled and cut into pieces
1 cup coconut water
2 tablespoons dried and unsweetened shredded coconut
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
Handful of ice cubes
Garnish with lime zest and freshly ground black pepper
1 scoop Amazing Meal (vanilla chai)
1T flaxseed meal

A little note about the Amazing Meal I have been referring to. I wish I could remember where I first saw Amazing Meal and how I came about their website... but either way, I found it. It's a whole new take on Protein Powder, which can be so grainy and full of chemicals & fillers. Here are the stats for the Vanilla Chai:
We also ordered the Original flavor from their website. We are just awaiting the shipment. In the meantime, we bought a small container at Whole Foods (aka my mecca). I like this product because they use Organic ingredients and a mix of greens and veggies. It's also high in fiber & nutrients and low in fat & sugar.

I realize with all these wordy posts, I am really going to have to start working on some pictures. I will aim for that tomorrow.
