protein (preferred over soy), 40 grams Real live active culture yoghurt*, 1-2 Tbl.
Milk (cow, goat, nut - walnut, hazelnut, rice, almond), 1/2 c. or
Organic sub(low)-acid fruit juice (apple, cherry, berry), 1/2 c.
Organic berries, dates, raisins, figs or a ripe
banana (opt.) Pasteurized egg whites (opt.), 1/3 c.
L-Glutamine powder, 2-3 grams (opt.)
Flax oil (opt.), 1 tsp.
Green powder* (opt.)
NOTE: Using egg whites exclusively for the liquid in your

green powders often include one or more of the following: alfalfa,
barley grass juice, chlorella, blue green algae, spinach powder,
green leaf tea, etc. They don't taste bad at all, especially
just a tablespoon tossed into your smoothie once a day. You
really can't go wrong with supplementing like this. Especially
if you shy away from as much dark leafy greens and salads as
you know you should be eating.
