I Finally Bought a Blender
Pre Dr. Lipman, I ate a toasted English muffin with peanut butter and either jelly or a sliced banana every single day for the past 15 years. Though it sounds reasonably healthy, every one of those foods is banned from the cleanse. So I broke my pattern and finally invested in my first blender. I had a fantastic time creating smoothie recipes! And I stopped spending $10 a pop on fancy juices from chichi health stores.
My current favorite concoction tastes like a milkshake but is packed with protein and antioxidants. Try it: one cup of unsweetened chocolate almond milk, a spoon of almond butter, a spoon of cocoa powder, a handful of frozen spinach, a handful of frozen blueberries, and one fourth of an avocado. Though the cleanse is over, I am continuing with my breakfast smoothie ritual since it’s easier for my stomach to digest liquids in the morning.
