Always add and mix the protein last.

The Health Benefits of Protein is that it is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis. Protein is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the "building blocks" for healthy bodies. Protein has a number of different roles in the body including the following: Repair body cells, Build and repair muscles and bones, Provide a source of energy and Control many of the important processes in the body related to metabolism.
The body is able to make non-essential amino acids from other amino acids in the body. However, the body is not able to make essential amino acids and the only way to get them is by eating high quality protein foods. Protein sources that contain all of the essential amino acids are called complete proteins.


Ingredients:
1 banana
1 mango
2 peaches
300g low-fat yogurt
1 - 2 scoops of Protein powder ( whey, soy, hemp or pea etc)
200ml rice milk and Ice
2 tbsp seeds (e.g. sunflower, pumpkin and sesame), freshly ground or chopped
1 - 2 tbsp liquid omega oil ( fish, hemp, flax... see their instructions )


Directions:
Peel the mango, remove the fruit and roughly chop. Wash the peaches, remove the stones and chop the flesh. Chop the banana into 3 pieces. Place all the fruit into a blender and whiz until smooth. Add the yogurt, Rice Milk and seeds and whiz again for a few seconds until frothy.

Add Protein last and whiz again.

Pour into glasses or sport bottle for breakfast on the go.

Notes: *Diabetics - reduce the amount of fruit by at least half, you can also add a teaspoon of ground flax to increase the fibre, which will slow the uptake of sugars into your system. If gluten intolerant, try replacing possible allergenic foods (dairy, whey, soy), instead add more water and use hemp protein.

Foods That Best Fuel Your Chakras
When you are thinking about your chakra system you probably aren't considering the types of foods that you consume. Because our chakras are energy vortexes and invisible to most of us one might well imagine that chakras would thrive on energy, prayer, or other such spiritual stuff... you know, those things that we can't see with the human eye. However, the chakras cannot sustain our human body without our help. It is important to feed and nourish the flesh in order to help support and fuel our...

Recipe
Granola with Wheat Germ, Seeds and Blackstrap Molasses
Category: Breakfast
Description: The advantage of making your own healthy homemade granola is that you can avoid some of the hydrogenated fats and corn syrup found in many of the commercial brands. Granola made this way is also a heart-healthy snack food because of the relatively low fat content and the vitamins and minerals supplied by the grains, seeds, nuts and fruits. Oats and other grains are rich in magnesium and other minerals and vitamins which help keep cholesterol low. This recipe I like because of the blackstrap molasses. Blackstrap molasses is a very good source of iron. Particularly for menstruating women, who are more at risk for iron deficiency, boosting iron stores with blackstrap molasses is a good idea--especially because, in comparison to red meat, a well known source of iron, blackstrap molasses provides more iron for less calories and is totally fat-free. Iron is an integral component of hemoglobin, which transports oxygen from the lungs to all body cells, and is also part of key enzyme systems for energy production and metabolism.
So, granola can be a quite healthy as part of a diet rich in natural grains and vegetables - and as a welcome treat for when you are working or playing extra hard.
