Breakfast: Power Smoothie

Start your day with a breakfast power smoothie to help combat certain cancers. Additionally, this smoothie helps to provide energy, control cravings, and get antioxidants into your body early to help you tackle the stress of your day. Feel free to use frozen berries. Freezing does not affect their nutrient potency, so you can stock up on berries while they’re in season. Choose wild berries as opposed to processed or cultivated varieties.

Ingredients

1/2 cup wild blueberries

1/2 cup blackberries

1/2 cup strawberries

1/2 cup raspberries

1 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice

Directions

Combine berries and pomegranate juice in a blender, and blend to desired consistency.
