I have made the Green Meal Shake from Karyn Calabrese’s Soak Your Nuts detox book many times since I got it but have never had it first thing in the morning as she suggests… It changed my entire day! I usually eat a lot of food throughout the day. Probably not a lot of calories per se, but a lot of food, or at least I’m grazing constantly (which doesn’t really work when you have Invisalign and are not supposed to take them out all the time!) I may not look like one, but I feel like a bottomless pit. Today however, after having the shake at 730am in place of my morning vegetable juice, I didn’t feel the need to eat all day and when I did, I needed less… woop woop! My teeth are saved :)
Karyn does make the claim in the book that this will keep you full for hours but I have read that before and have never really found anything that does… know what I mean? If you do, check this out and let me know how you find it! Also, I was a little skeptical about the taste of these ingredients at first but it really does taste good for something so good for you.
Karyn doesn’t say this, but I suggest you enjoy it immediately… I took it to work in a thermos one day and it tasted funky :S
Karyn also suggests you man mix it up by using nut milk as the liquid, and different fruits such as apple, blueberries or pineapple, or hemp oil… I will let you know of any good combinations I come up with when I get sick of the traditional one!
