I am so thrilled to be able to share this recipe. I used to skip breakfast a lot. I’d rather get another 30 minutes of sleep than to get up early for breakfast. Sometimes I would have tea, most times coffee. It was my ‘breakfast’. I mean, who needs breakfast when you have coffee right?
One day I couldn’t get up from bed. I had stabbing pain in my stomach. It was bad. When the pain eased off I dragged myself out of bed and went to work, thinking that it’d eventually go away. It didn’t. I couldn’t work as I was in so much pain. I went to the doctor and later was diagnosed with chronic gastritis. I was prescribed some anti-acid medication and told to never skip a meal ever. Best advise I had ever received. It changed my life forever.
Fast track 4 years, I haven’t had a single gastritis episode. I’ve progressed from having Up&Go liquid breakfast to making my own concoction of Green Smoothie. Breakfast doesn’t get any healthier than this. Life is worth living for again.
But wait, it gets better.
Though most times I’m happy to have liquid breakfast, sometimes I feel like something solid. Something with a bit of a bite, slightly chewy and sweet. Like a cookie!
