Smoothie for a Soldier
My daughters husband John is in the Army and currently deployed. I think about him so much and pray for a safe mission and speedy return. You really have no idea what these military families go through unless you know them personally or you are related to them. John is an amazing husband and father, and I am so happy that he is part of our family.
Of course being the health nut that I am, I was concerned about him and his ability to get good nutritious food while he is deployed. He is very conscientious about his diet and exercise, so I asked her if he was happy with the food that he was getting. She told me that he has had a hard time getting his hands on good healthy food . So I suggested to her that she buy him a blender and the 10 superfoods and ship it to him. This way he could make superfood smoothies every day and be assured that he was getting everything he needs nutritionally on a daily basis, So that day she ordered everything and shipped it to him, and he couldn’t be happier!!
Here are a few of the 10 superfoods that she sent him, ( I have already blogged about 4 of them, just check the archives.)
Blue Green Algae-The benefits are endless-
Loaded with chlorophyll
Contains 40 major trace minerals which are necessary in the building of every tissue including hair,
skin, nails, and bones!
Excellent source of B vitamins which is needed for energy, stamina and endurance.
Great source of PROTEIN
A complete source of protein containing 60% protein-18 amino acids
PEA="The love chemical" Helps to create feelings of euphoria, excitement and attraction
I buy the Klamuth Blue Lake blue green algae.
Another superfood is Aloe Vera Gel
Here are the benefits...
Lubricates the joints and skin
Great for the digestive system.
Normalizes blood sugar
Hydrates your cells
Reverse the aging process, feel incredible, look younger, and have more energy than you can imagine! Drink yourself some GREEN!!
The best part of this whole post came from my conversation with Amy today when she told me that her husband was so thankful to have the superfood smoothies because he pretty much lives off of them.
How rewarding to know that you are contributing to someones happiness and health and making the quality of their life better. Just makes me SMILE...:-))))))))
John, we miss you, and look forward to your safe return. O, I just wanted to let you know, I've got you covered on the labor and delivery of baby Hannah! She will be in good hands with her Nonnie!
Until next time,
PS...If any of you readers are near the Memphis area, my daughter Hannah and I are doing a weekend workshop on Yoga and Introduction to raw foods and superfood smoothies on June the 26th at Give Yoga Memphis.
