$ What Makes this High-Vibing Food?

  • First and foremost, putting your own love, gratitude, time and energy into making foods at home will automatically raise the vibration of the foods/meal. This will also help to balance your sacral and heart chakras. Putting your love into the food you prepare will literally raise the vibrational frequency as love is the highest vibration out there!

  • You are what you eat and what your food eats. Using organic, GMO free, free/pasture raised, wild caught, minimally processed ingredients lead to an overall higher vibrational frequency. Basically, eating organic provides us extra energy currency!

  • This dish is rich in protein, which is grounding and protective. It also supports the root chakra.

  • This dish is rich in collagen, which is grounding and protective. It also supports the root chakra.

  • Contains red colored foods. Red vibrates at about the same frequency as the root chakra. So, eating red foods helps to maintain the proper root chakra frequency.

  • This recipe is heavy in water, which supports the sacral chakra.

  • This recipe is full of healthy fats and/or oils, which supports the sacral chakra.

  • This recipe is higher in carbohydrates, providing the solar plexus chakra with both long-lasting sugar sources (like fiber) and quick acting sugars like glucose.

  • This recipe is high in fiber, which supports all three of the lower chakras as it aides in the movement and flow of bulk during the digestive processes.

  • Contains yellow/tan/golden colored foods, which help raise the body’s frequency to that of the solar plexus, helping to balance it.

  • Contains leafy greens, which are especially supportive to the heart chakra as they contain life force, layers and depth.

  • Contains raw veggies, which are especially balancing to the heart chakra as they contain balancing cooling properties.

  • Contains green colored foods, which support and balance the heart chakra.

Hidden Greens Smoothie

(gluten free & AIP/paleo)

Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: none Yield: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1, 3.5 oz. pack of frozen, organic purred dragon fruit

  • 1 gigantic handful of fresh spinach (or about 2 packed cups)

  • 1 frozen banana (peeled)

  • 1.5 cups of frozen strawberries

  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil

  • 2 scoops of Primal Kitchen collagen peptides, or another grass-fed collagen peptide (omit for vegan option!)

  • Filtered water (as much as you need to get the smoothie consistency you need!)


How to Create this Recipe:

  1. If you’re using a high powered professional grade blender, like a Vitamix (which is what I use), then there’s no need to pre-chop anything! Just throw all the ingredients into your blender pitcher. If you’re using a ninja or other regular blender, you’ll need to really chop up your ingredients before blending to get a smooth consistency.

  2. Add your water. This will depend on the consistency you want. For a smoothie texture add enough water to the pitcher (when it’s already full of ingredients) to get about half way full of water. For a juice consistency fill your blender pitcher almost full of water.

  3. Blend your smoothie, starting from low speed and working your way to the highest speed, until all the ingredients are blended and smooth. You may need to use your tamper to get everything blended thoroughly.

  4. Enjoy!!


* NOTES:

  • If you do not have a high powered blender like a Vitamix, you will need to chop up all of the ingredients very well in order to get a smooth, blended consistency.
