“Here’s some simple advice: always be yourself. Never take yourself too seriously.

And, beware of advice from experts, pigs and members of Parliament.” – Kermit T. Frog

It’s getting warmer down here in Sydney-town. Summer is coming.

And, that means some days I’m not so keen on my tried ‘n true AIP-friendly brekkie hash first thing in the morning.

In fact, some mornings, I don’t want to eat much at all

This is where my Über Nutrient Dense Green Smoothie comes in. Kermit would be proud!

If I was still knee-deep in my elimination phase of the Autoimmune Protocol, then I’d have this baby with an extra helping of protein – something like my SUPER SIMPLE Breakfast Burger Patties. But, since I’m well and truly in my personal ‘maintenance phase’ – some days this is all I need.

It’s a meal in a glass!

But! – and, this is important – if you’re choosing to have a smoothie, always sit down to ‘eat’ it. Chewing your smoothie is important for digestion. No drinking on the run!

What’s the deal with collagen?

Hydrolyzed Collagen is just the ticket for supplying important amino acids like glycine, proline and lysine that are required by the body to build connective tissue to regulate cell growth. Regularly supplementing your diet with collagen will benefit your hair, skin tissue, muscle, cartilage, ligaments and blood cell growth.

I use choose Vital Proteins collagen.
