Happy Monday!  I had a fabulous weekend and I hope you did too.  A few months ago a read an article on The Chalboard Mag about a Raw  Food Nanny named Stacy Stowers.  I thought, what a great job she has!  She travels to families' homes to help them learn the basic of raw cuisine.  Fast forward 5-6 months later, I get a chance to meet her!  Jean-Marie met her through a friend and Stacy came out to Jean-Marie's for a one week stay and we had a raw food party Friday night.  So much fun!

I want to share with you her amazing Happy Shake.  It's perfect for this month of January when many of us are doing a 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge with Simple Green Smoothies. It's the ultimate green smoothie if you ask me.

Here's a copy of the recipe she shares on her site.



Step # 1
Liquid Base. Melody starts with 1/2 cup water.

Step # 2
4 cups of loosely packed the kale for a nice kale salad.

Step # 3
A Good FAT. You need the good fat for metabolizing the spinach and keeping you satisfied for hours. You may choose from 1 Tbs. coconut oil, 1 Tbs. hemp seed or 1 raw egg. (you may want to start with a bit less water if using an egg)

Step # 4
THE HAPPY PART........1 Tbs. Maca for stamina, endurance and mental clarity.
1 Tbs. Raw Cacao for that HAPPY BLISS feeling.
~ with Melody Miles.

A great option for some additional alkalizing GREENS.....add 1 Tbs. Vitamineral Green

Step # 5
DO NOT add fruit yet...... Blend all ingredients into your "green sludge".

Step # 6.
Now add 2 cups frozen fruit (1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries & 1/2 cup frozen banana pictured here) to your "green sludge".
BLUEberries+GREEN "sludge" = Chocolate BROWN!

A NOTE on Super Foods ... Super Foods like Maca and Cacao are very powerful foods. These foods border medicine. This is a good time to do your own research on these two amazing foods. Start in small doses and listen to your body.

You may be wondering where you can get these ingredients.  I found these at my local Whole Foods Store.

And finally, here are some some Instagram pics of the raw cooking 101 session and raw food party where we were showing off our tastings of the Happy Shake.

When you have a chance, please try the Happy Shake.  You will feel energized!  It's oh so good!

Have a great Monday!
