2 Breakfast Shake Recipe: Detox with Barley Grass + Soy Protein Shake

Nowadays I usually start the day with either of these 2 shakes.

The Barley Grass Detox Breakfast Shake is a detoxing shake to start the day freshly.
I usually take these on my work-at-home days or weekend.
The Soy Protein Soy Shake is my energy shake, to get ready for a more physically demanding day at work.

Barley Grass Detox Breakfast Shake:
200 ml Coconut water
1 banana
1 tablespoon barley grass powder
1 tablespoon oat bran
1 teaspoon maca powder
10 drops Vitamin D oil
Extra fruit for taste variation: strawberries, blackberries, melon, pineapple.

All in the Magic Bullet blender...& breakfast is served!

You can also use wheat grass in stead of barley grass. Personally I find wheat grass to have a more earthier taste, barley grass has a softer taste and is less dominant.

Soy Protein Energy Shake:
200 ml soy milk (unsweetened)
1 banana
2 tablespoon (approx 25 gram) soy protein powder (unsweetened)
1 tablespoon milled flaxseed (my favourite is Linwoods with Q10 and nuts)
1 teaspoon macapowder
10 drops Vitamin D oil
Extra taste variation: 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder, blueberries, strawberries.

In the blender & ready to drink.

For me these shakes really helped me getting back my energy (and loose some weight along the way).
Above all listen to your own body. My story: I found that bread didn't give me enough energy, I always stayed hungry and ate without feeling fed.
So I changed my lifestyle: breakfast: shakes, lunch: yoghurt with muesli, protein powder & chia seeds, and I'm trying to avoid sugar and syrups as much as possible.
As for exercising: I decided to only do exercises I like. So no more guilt over having to go to the gym, instead I took Bollywood dance lessons: much more fun!
