Since I have been reined ATPB’s resident juicer, I am always in search for superfoods or supplements to add to our juices and smoothies. I wanted to share with you pretty birds some of my daily go to additives. Let me know what you are putting in your cup.

UDO’S OIL

The Story

The Omega 3, 6, 9 oil mix is a certified organic blend of guaranteed GMO-free, unrefined edible oils. This unique blend delivers a reliable source of the omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids that are essential to life.

What’s the Big Deal?

Let me just list you the benefits…

Increased energy, performance, and stamina, strengthens the immune system, lowers most risk factors for cardiovascular disease, improves brain function: mood, intelligence, behavior, and vision, aids in weight reduction, regulates organs and glands, speed recovery and healing, supports healthy child development, improves digestion, decreases infection, keeps bones strong, protects genetic material, eases PMS, produces beautiful skin, hair, and nails. WOW!

When and Where?

If I have a strenuous activity ahead, for instance running or boxing, I add Udo’s Oil to my yogurt or in a smoothie about 2 hours before the workout. These essential fatty acids give me that energy for the long haul. (Udo’S Choice Udo’S Oil 3-6-9 Blend)

LUCUMA POWDER

The Story

Lucuma powder is made from the subtropical fruit of the Pouteria lucuma tree, native to Peru, Chile and Ecuador and is a gluten-free source of antioxidants, fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals that aid the immune system and bodily functions.

What’s the Big Deal?

Lucuma has been used for centuries in South America for its medicinal properties and anti-inflammatory effect that promotes wound healing and tissue regeneration for aging skin. It is a great source of potassium, to help maintain a stable blood pressure, iron, to aid in reducing fatigue, and zinc, contributing to normal fertility and reproduction and the maintenance of bones, teeth, hair, nails.

When and Where?

I suffer from adult acne due to my out of whack hormones, and a nutritionist recommended Lucuma for my skin. Lucuma is rather sweet, so I add it to my afternoon smoothies that maybe the fruit is not the ripest or if I am having a serious sweet tooth and want to give my drink that extra kick.

BUDDHA’S AWAKENING HEMPINESS

The Story

Buddha’s Awakening is an instant raw breakfast mix made of Milled Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds and Buckwheat, Hemp Protein Powder, Almond Flour, Raisins, Lucuma, Coconut Sugar. It is 100% natural and organic.

What’s the Big Deal?

We all know the benefits of all the ingredients; the big deal is they are all jam packed into one mix. It is rich in iron, calcium, magnesium, Omega 3 and 6, stabilizes blood sugar and provides increased energy and feeling of fullness.

When and Where?

Even though you can simply add water to this mix, I add it to my cereals, oatmeal or yogurts every morning. I get quite lazy in the morning and with Buddha’s Awakening, I get a superfood that will last me the whole day. (Iswari Buddha’s Awakening Hempiness)
