In today’s episode, I’d like to give you one of my all time greatest health secrets.
In fact, I’ve probably given this recipe to hundreds in my “insider network” and many of the biggest names in the world still drink this EVERY DAY.
And the best part is that it tastes great, is easy to make, doesn’t require any fancy machinery, and you can pick up most of the ingredients at your local health food store + Amazon.
Taking better care of yourself is one of the most important aspects of being a successful entrepreneur.
Because it’s impossible to show up powerfully and take big bold actions forward when you feel depleted or disconnected.
So enjoy this episode! It’s delicious…
Transcript of this episode:
In this episode of The Big Vision Show I’m taking you inside my home.
Hey there, I’m Max Simon and welcome to The Big Vision Show. This is all about how you can reach more people and thrive financially.
Now, in today’s episode we’re going to do something a little different. You see, people always ask me what are my personal routines? What are the extra unique things that I do in order to keep myself really healthy and vibrant and alive so that I can show up fully in my business?
You see, so many people don’t realize that one of the greatest strengths that they have in their business is them. And so if you don’t have the necessary levels of vibrancy, of energy, of clarity, of ability to really show up powerfully it doesn’t really matter how smart or strategic you are – none of it’s going to really land impact-fully in the people you’re trying to serve.
Now if you’re new to my world you’ll know that one of my most famous secrets is my morning green drink, my morning smoothie. And today I figured I would actually take you in my kitchen and we would make one together. You ready? They’re quite delicious and interesting. So here we go.
The first thing that you need is, I like to use nut milks which are non-dairy forms of milk. So this is an organic almond milk; you can use a rice milk, you can use a hemp milk, even soy milk can work for you. So add about half of your cup of almond milk, and I like to use the vanilla one just because it gives it a nice little flavor. And by the way, this little contraption is called a NutriBullet. So it’s like a blender but a little bit smaller and it gives you individual cup sizes. And this little thing just kind of pops off and screws on here.
So fill it half with almond milk. Then I put in a half a frozen banana. So these are fresh bananas that I just throw in the freezer so that you don’t have to use ice cubes. So they’re still pretty much fresh because they’re really just from this week, but they’re frozen so that we don’t have to use any ice cubes and that way you can just use this frozen banana. It gives it a little bit of a sweeter texture. It is a little bit of sugar but natural sugar.
Then we use hemp seeds which are from Nutiva. We like that brand the most. They’re organic and it’s a good company. You can do about half a tablespoon of hemp seeds. These are a great source of protein; they’re also a good flavor. It gives it a kind of nutty, rich flavor to it.
The protein that I use, and I have tested a lot of different proteins, is this Lifetime Life’s Basic Plant Protein, and the reason I use a plant protein is because I know it’s easy to digest and it also doesn’t have a really weird, gritty flavor like a lot of the rice proteins. It also is very easy for your body to absorb. So do a good full scoop of this plant protein, and of course since it’s a green drink it helps that it actually is green.
And then we move into some of the more specialty ingredients. This is a vitamin mineral green by HealthForce SuperFoods, and this is just all sorts of different green supplements and powders and live foods blended together. So I think there’s spirulina and kelp and chlorella and gosh, there’s so much stuff in this. This is probably the greatest source of energy, meaning this will help you feel just more clear-minded, more focused, more alive and it really does feel like you’ve just had a shot of an energy drink.
And then my favorite parts, which is some cacao nibs. These are raw cacao nibs, so you know, what they make chocolate out of. This is the raw bean that they take and then they basically dry it and then chop it up into these little nibs. It gives it good texture and then also cacao is a great source of energy, and then I use some raw cacao powder. Let’s see, I use Navitas as the company and we just buy this on Amazon and they ship it right to our door. And I’ll do maybe a half a tablespoon of cacao powder as well.
Then you just fill it up the rest with water. And if you want to make it extra special, and I didn’t put it out here so I guess I’ll leave it out of this recipe but do like a little half a tablespoon of sunflower butter or almond butter or something like that. It gives it a kind of heavier, meatier texture to it. So let’s blend this baby up, huh?
It’s just about all you need. Now you’ve got a morning green drink and it actually tastes amazing. I have one of these every morning. It’s the perfect way to start your day, giving you tremendous energy, a clear mind and an ability to really go for it and play full out in your days. Oh, so good.
