  • Has anyone ever told you the most important meal of the day is breakfast?
  • Are you having trouble finding time to cook?
  • Do you find that you are not hungry for breakfast?
  • Do you only eat 1-2 meals per day?

You will learn the following:


  1. How to choose the right meal replacement or protein powders for your needs: Meal Replacements-Contains a protein source in addition to other nutrients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes).
    Protein Powders-Contains protein supplements (whey, soy, rice, hemp, etc).
  2. How to incorporate more vegetables and fruits into your families diet: We are going to show you some recipes that will enable you to mix up fruits & veggies into your shakes. Add Greens (spinach, kale, etc)
  3. Why to eat certified organic as much as possible:
    More nutritional value. Decreased chemicals= Decreased toxicity.
  4. Why to consume raw foods and how to prepare foods to get the most nutrients:
    Increased nutritional value. Heated food = processing = denatured enzymes past 116 degrees.
    Cook as little as possible.
  5. How to make your own nut milks: Soak 1 cup of nuts overnight, Drain, Add 1 cup of soaked nuts + 3 cups filtered water + dates (2-3), Blend, Pour mixture into nut bag, Sqeeze nut bag to remove as much milk as possible. You will be left with outer coating of nut. This can be used for other recipes.
  6. The differences between pasteurized dairy and raw dairy: Pasteurized = Processed. Raw = Life
  7. Risks of soy:Contains goitrogens that depress thyroid. Potent enzyme inhibitors that block the action of trypsin and other enzymes needed for protein digestion. Can produce serious gastric distress, reduced protein digestion and chronic deficiencies in amino acid uptake.
    Also contain haemagglutinin, a clot-promoting substance that causes red blood cells to clump together. Trypsin inhibitors and haemagglutinin are growth inhibitors.
    Soybeans are high in phytic acid, present in the bran or hulls of all seeds. It’s a substance that can block the uptake of essential minerals – calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and especially zinc – in the intestinal tract. Phytoestrogen. High in copper.
  8. The Basics of Detoxification: Goal is to eliminate. Decrease chemicals into system.

Power Shake Recipes

Recommended Meal Replacements:
*SP Complete (Standard Process) *Detox Shake
PaleoCleanse (Designs For Health) *Detox Shake
Clearvite (Apex Energetics) *Detox Shake: Chocolate or Berry
Bio Inflammatory Plus *Anti-Inflammatory Shake
*Paleomeal (Designs For Health): Chocolate or Vanilla
Ultra Meal (Metagenics): Chocolate or Vanilla

*Whey Cool (Designs For Health): Natural Vanilla

Each meal/shake/snack should contain approximately:
15 grams of protein
20 grams of low or moderate glycemic index (GI) carbohydrates
6 grams of high quality oils or fats

The above suggestions will vary according to each individual based upon genetics, activity levels, stress, goals and more. The main difference between an individual seeking to lose weight and body fat versus another who wants to maintain weight or gain weight is simply a change in the number of calories consumed. The guidelines for achieving ones individual goals will be relatively the same, given one is healthy.

Basic Shake Model:

  • Add one-two scoops of the meal replacement or protein powder (8-16 ounces of water) to your desired consistency.
  • Add one serving of an organic fruit (1 fist= ½ cup), such as berries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries.
  • Banana can be added; however, berries will have less sugar for faster fat loss.
  • Frozen fruit is ideal for consistency.
  • Lastly, add a fat source for blood sugar balance: coconut cream, coconut oil, flaxseed oil, avocado, nuts or nut butter.
  • Mix together in a blender.
  • For time efficiency: Try blending a double batch in the morning and put half in a thermos for later in the day.

Great Additions To Shake:

  • Organic cinnamon can be added to enhance taste and for blood sugar balance.
  • Freshly-ground flaxseed meal for additional fiber and omega 3’s. Also makes shake thicker. (1-3 TBS).
  • Veggies instead of or in addition to fruits.
  • Raw milk, nut milks, coconut milk, decaf/caffeinated organic coffee and blended whole fruits can be used instead of water.
  • Avoid soy (high copper, common allergen, GMO), fruit juices, rice milk (high glycemic index foods that raise insulin levels)
  • Sweeteners can be added to satisfy taste: xylitol (1-2 tsp), dates (3), liquid stevias: many flavors (3-4 drops)
  • Raw Cocao is real chocolate. It tastes great and even has 7 grams of fiber.
  • Raw Maca is native to the high Andes of Bolivia and Peru which is used as a root vegetable and a medicinal herb. It is regarded as a highly nutritious food and as a medicine that enhances strength and endurance and also acts as an aphrodisiac 60% carbohydrates, 10% protein, 8.5% dietary fiber, and 2.2% fats. Maca is rich in essential minerals, especially selenium, calcium, magnesium, and iron, and includes fatty acids including linolenic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acids, and 19 amino acids, as well as polysaccharides.[5]
  • No sugar added vanilla extract (1 tsp)

Supplements That Can Be Added To Shake To Improve Nutrition Content or To Make Up For Deficiencies:

  • Cod Liver Oil to improve mood, brain wellness, recover faster, decrease inflammation and more. (1 Serving)
  • Additional Whey Cool protein can be added if you have tolerated whey in the past and you need extra protein for higher activity levels (1/2-1 scoop).
  • Not all whey protein powders are the same. Most create digestive issues.DFH Paleogreens or DFH Paleoreds to increase fruit & vegetables in the diet, especially those highest in antioxidants. (1 Serving)
  • Pascalite Clay can be added for removal of toxins and metals (1/4 tsp).
  • Glutamine powder is very reparative and healing in the gut where it strengthens the mucosal cells and in turn helps leaky gut and sugar cravings. Glutamine also helps promote optimal muscle growth and strength and has shown to be particularly useful in helping prevent muscle wasting. (1-3 tsp)
  •  Phosphatidyl Choline (1 TBS) and Phosphatidyl Serine(1/4 TSP) to support brain wellness.
  • Probiotic Synergy to maintain a healthy bacterial environment in the intestines by displacing bad bacteria, aiding digestion of food including dairy products and by combating yeast overgrowth.* Beneficial bacteria also aid in the synthesis of Vitamin K and CLA and possibly the B Vitamins (1/2 tsp)
  • Carnitine Tartrate for low energy, obesity, and fatigue. Carnitine increases weight loss by promoting optimal fat burning by the mitochondria. Carnitine also helps promote heart health, maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels, and sports endurance and recovery (¼ tsp)
  • MSM for joint, muscle or bone support (3-5 tsp)
  • Glutathione powder can be added to increase glutathione. Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants known for its ability to protect the body against the damages caused by heavy metal toxicity and environmental toxins. It breaks down wastes, toxins, and heavy metals into less harmful compounds. It is particularly important during acute infections, toxic metal elimination, inflammatory bowel conditions (IBS, Crohn’s), and all other conditions involving free radical stress. (1/4 tsp)

Supplements taken in the form of a smoothie allow a concentrated form of nutrition that requires very little digestion.
Chemotherapy and radiation produce cold injury, and as a result, the patient must not take in cold liquids.  The easiest approach is to blend the mixture until the outer casing of the blender jar is warm to the touch, rather than chilled.
