One quick and easy way to get lots of nutrient dense foods in a single serving is by drinking a green smoothie every day. Make it your breakfast so that you start your day off right. You can make enough for two or three for the day, so that whenever you get hungry, you have a healthy option ready to consume. I personally make 2 quarts at a time and have one for breakfast and one later in the day for a pre or post workout boost.

You can customize your smoothie to your personal taste, but it should be 3/4 greens (spinach, kale, chard) to 1/4 fruit. You can use just water as your liquid or you can use unsweetened almond milk or green tea. I use green tea in mine because I like the neutral flavor and the anti-oxidant properties. It is best to use a high powered blender like a Blend-tec or a Vita-Mix. These are both professional strength blenders that will grind your flax seeds and chia seeds. If you don’t have a professional blender, you will have to use a coffee grinder to grind the seeds first. NutriBullets work well for these too. They just don’t have the capacity like the others, so you will need to make several batches. Find my recipe below:

My Green Smoothie

4-5 full handfuls of spinach, kale and/or collard greens

1/2 cucumber

1 stalk celery

1 small piece of fresh ginger root

1/2 cup black chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seed

sprinkle of cayenne pepper

spinkle of ceylon cinnamon

2 heaping scoops Dr. Catie’s Greens

1 scoop Dr. Catie ‘s Pure Lean Protein

1 scoop each Dr. Catie’s tropical digest, B complex, & C powders

4 cups liquid (green tea, water or unsweetened almond milk)

Amla powder

Fruit of your choice: blueberries, bananas, mango, pineapple, mixed berries, kiwi, apples

(if you use frozen you will not need to add ice, but if using fresh fruit, add ice so the blender doesn’t overheat)

Other superfoods to add:

moringa powder



maca powder

I make two quarts at a time and store in glass ball jars in the refrigerator. These are meal replacements and are easy to take on the go so that you always have a healthy option when you get hungry. On meal prep day, I clean and chop the cucumbers and celery ahead of time. You can store in the refrigerator or the freezer. I usually keep plenty of fresh greens as well as any not being used that week in the freezer. This way, I always have the supplies I need to make my smoothies.

If you have two of these a day and a sensible dinner, you will get plenty of nutrients that you body needs to thrive!
