The picture above shows the ingredients of my current breakfast drink. The fruits change with the season. This morning, they were an apple and a kiwifruit. I bought a few kiwifruits on Saturday for a treat. During the summer, I might put in a few berries and a peach instead of the apple. My body can handle apples without any trouble so most of the time the fruit is an apple. The nuts and seeds were sunflower seeds (3 tsp), flax seeds (1 tsp), and a few walnuts. The liquid was one cup of Echinacea and Ginger herbal tea and 1 1/2 cups of distilled water. I have also used fruit juice instead of the tea or used all water. The star of the breakfast drink is the Super Food Plus (2 Tablespoons). Picture 4 shows the ingredient and nutrient information for the Super Food Plus. Thankfully, my body loves the Super Food Plus. At present, I have it three times a day either in a drink like the breakfast drink or sprinkled on vegetables. In addition, there was 1 teaspoon of Herbal Mucil Plus which is a fiber supplement. I think this breakfast drink tastes really good. It is filling enough to keep hunger away for about 3 hours.
I make the herbal tea ahead of time. This time, it was Echinacea and Ginger tea. I love the taste of the Echinacea and I like the zip from the Ginger. It steeped for 20 minutes for a strong flavor. The tea was then strained from the herbs into mason jars which cooled on the counter before being refrigerated.
It has been snowing lightly this afternoon. I am late today. Running time is going to be 8 pm. The temperature is predicted to be 21 degrees with the wind from the northeast giving a feels-like temperature of 12 degrees. The weather was nearly the same last night except for the snow. There were only a few ice and snow patches on the sidewalk. There is little accumulation expected from the snow this afternoon and evening. I am looking forward to going running. I had been feeling worn down by the cold and the snow. Last night’s run, though, was unexpectedly enjoyable and improved my mood considerably.
Take care and thanks for reading.
