Begin your Day with Dr. Laura's Anti-Inflammation Shake!

Dr. Laura's Anti-Inflammation Shake

Start your morning right with this powerful blend of anti-oxidants designed to reduce inflammation in
your body and enhance healing. You will notice from the first day that you have more energy, vitality and mental focus.

(You may not have all of these ingredients but you do want berries, greens, a banana, some seeds or seed butter, turmeric, cinnamon, cayenne. Use all organic ingredients whenever possible!)

½ c water or unsweetened almond or coconut milk
2-3 ice cubes
1 handful organic blueberries, raspberries or blackberries (fresh or frozen)
2 handfuls organic kale, chard or spinach*
1 scoop of Nanogreens or Green Vibrance
1 t. turmeric
1 t. cinnamon
1 T maca powder
1 T bee pollen
1 T cacao nibs
pinch of cayenne
1 banana
1 T sunflower nut butter or 2 T sunflower seeds

(other options)
½ c. organic fresh or frozen pineapple
1 T organic pumpkin seeds
½ t. grated fresh ginger

Here's a tip so it isn't overwhelming to have everything ready for a quick morning shake.  As soon as you get home from the grocery store, devein the kale or chard and cut in ribbons, soak in a salad spinner and spin until dry – store in a bag in the fridge ready to use for shakes, salads, or stir fry.

Laura Scrimgeour, M.D is a surgical resident in Providence, RI, and whether it's staying alert during 30 hour shifts or workin 80 hours a week, she relies on this shake to give her energy and keep her mind working at it's best.
