I had too much coffee, and acidic foods today, so I was suffering from heartburn. I was out of calcium rich Tums, so I tried Pepto Bismol, but that didn’t help. Drinking extra spring water didn’t do much for relief either. So I reached for a natural remedy, Dr. Bragg’s organic apple cider vinegar mixed with water. I was able to burp big time, which helped. Next I drank more water with a couple spoonfuls of pure baking soda. That was the trick. I felt better almost instantly, and had to share this info. I hope that works for you.

I made the best superfood smoothie today for my friends and I. I used a base of Silk organic peach mango fruit juice with protein, and dairy-free vanilla almond milk. Then I tossed in a mix of frozen mangos, pineapple, strawberries, and a non-GMO banana. For an extra boost I added maca. It’s a Peruvian root that increases stamina. It’s my favorite supplement. Finally, I put in a scoop and a half of Sunwarrior vanilla rice protein powder!
I juice or make super smoothies nearly every day. It gives me extra energy to do whatever, from the dishes to writing. Drinks like this are a meal replacement for me. I usually have about 32 ounces, so I’m full. Smoothies are absorbed almost instantly in my body, and they are easy to process, unlike meat. I couldn’t ask for more, but if I was to add another supplement, it would be wheatgrass powder, or Barleans Greens. Time to finish my second glass. I drank the first so fast I thought my brain was going to freeze permanently. Get crazy with your own smoothies. Cheers!

I just blended my first whole fruit and vegetable smoothie with the Ninja blender! Here’s my product review, with two healthy recipes.
I picked up my blender for $90 at Walmart. I like that it’s professional grade, and holds 72 ounces. Plus, the pitcher is BPA free, which is important. You don’t want chemicals leaching into your drink. The built-in pour spout is clutch also! I’m going to use it every time so I don’t spill.
The Ninja is a beast. It boasts 900 watts of power, and has several sharp blades. The base is wide, and sturdy. It even has a place for the cord. It’s great for blasting ice and anything else. I’ve used a Vitamix a lot, and I think this works better. It mixed my protein more thoroughly, and got the powder off the sides of the pitcher. At less than 1/5th of the cost, Survival Bros highly recommends this blender.
I put its power to the test. I mixed kale, spinach, protein, frozen berries, maca, and cold water. It had no problem breaking it all down. Clean up was easy too, and it’s dishwasher safe. The dial control was cool to use and simple. I already want another, more powerful Ninja with the different containers.
Here’s two smoothie recipes to try:
Wild Blackberry and Grape
2 cups of blackberries
1 1/2 cups of organic purple grape juice
1 teaspoon organic raw honey
Add a banana for more carbs
Blend with ice if berries aren’t frozen
Try with spinach!
Hippie Vanilla Raspberry Smoothie
1 cup of fresh raspberries
1/2 cup natural bio yogurt
1 cup vanilla hemp milk
1 heaping scoop of Sunwarrior vanilla brown rice protein powder
