Okay, we’re at day 2 of the 30 Day experiment and so far I’ve survived. Yesterday wasn’t actually as difficult as I thought it might be. Perhaps that’s because I started the day with a tried and true raw breakfast favorite?
The GAPS smoothie is basically a juice that you blend with some good raw fats and proteins. There are endless variations on this, but here’s how I made mine:
- 2 cucumbers
- 5 stalks of celery
- 1 head romaine lettuce
- 1/2 bunch of parsley
- 2 carrots
- 2 beets + their greens
- 1 meyer lemon
And then I put that juice in my trusty vitamix along with:
- 6 raw eggs (really good quality eggs from pastured chickens)
- 1/4 cup raw cream (haven’t made crème fraiche yet, but will do so with the rest of this cream for tomorrow’s breakfast)
- spoonful of raw honey
I blended it all up, and ta-da! My morning smoothie, GAPS-style. Chef James and I shared it, and even Sia had a few sips to go along with her morning eggs. Loads of enzymes, phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals; unadulterated high quality protein; and excellent fats to sustain me through the morning.
And it’s delicious to boot. Creamy, a little sweet, and surprisingly filling.
