The One Thing I Can't Start My Morning Without

—  found in  Food  —

A common question I get asked is what my morning routine looks like. I thought it would be fun to film a short video about it. 

Mornings are sacred to me. I LOVE the morning and I do my best not to schedule anything before 9am because I don't like to rush this time. I need time to eat breakfast in peace, poop (yep, I said it) and spend time with Walker and Vienna before starting my work day.

That's about the extent of my morning before work. As much as I would like to have time to meditate, do yoga, or go to the gym - realistically, just having breakfast, pooping and spending time with my family is pretty much what I accomplish. Oh, and of course, if you've watched my video on my daily detox ritualsyou already know what I do when I wake up before my feet even touch the floor. Hint: It's a skin beauty secret!

When I watched the rough edit of this video, I will admit... I was embarrassed because I literally just woke up and well... I look like it.

I didn't want to post it, but after some convincing from my hubs, we decided to post it. So now you know what I look like after rolling out of bed. I did manage to put some mascara on and brush my teeth though, lol. 

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup frozen mango
  • 1 banana
  • Half cucumber
  • 1 cup kale
  • Thumb size ginger
  • 1-2 scoops Genuine Health Fermented Vegan Protein Powder
  • 2 scoops Genuine Health Fermented Gut Superfoods
  • Coconut Water to desired consistency
  • Handful of fresh mint
Instructions
  1. Place all your ingredients into a blender and give a whirl until smooth and creamy.

Have a joyous rest of your week!

Joy

I really happy you shared your "real life" video that included all of Vienna's early morning cuteness with us!! Love that smoothie, depite its colour! lol I'm surprised that you are taking supplements daily when you already get so much value from your diet and smoothie powders. I thought they would be unnecessary! I was taking a probiotic, and vitamin D and fish oil too but when I started maki g superfoods smoothies, I was afraid of overloading in areas that were maybe not a good idea to allow to happen.

Joy, I have been meaning to ask you this for ages! Do you take your probiotic at the same time as you take your omega 3, D and multi vitamins? Thanks!

Hi Joy!! Just wondering if the greens actually go bad past the expiration date or can they still be used??

Thanks for your video, Joy! I think you were about to tell us what you substitute for liquid when the smoothie will be your complete breakfast, when Vienna distracted you. I assume it would be almond or coconut milk?

Do you think that any of these ingredients would mess with thyroid? Also, what vitamins d and fish oil do you take?

Joy, you have some great recipes. I was looking at the vegan powder you used in your morning smoothie. It has great ingredients in it. Then I read, if I live in the US the ingredients are totally different. Why is that? The ingredients aren't nearly as good in the US as the one listed above. Very discouraging :(.

What kind of coconut water do you use? I've heard a lot of information about over-processed or high heat processing of coconut water. I'm really trying to find the most benefit at a low cost if I'm going to make this smoothie daily.
