2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
3 cups baby spinach, chopped

When reheating leftover peppers, sprinkle a spoonful of vegetable stock over the stuffing to keep it moist.
Coconut water is one of my many essentials I use throughout my day that always gets me through my week. I drink coconut water first thing in the morning! It’s filled with tons of potassium and minerals your body needs and can use to function throughout the day . It will rehydrate you as you most likely haven’t had anything to drink during the night.
I drink coconut water in the morning followed by tons of regular filtered water throughout the day. If my energy is feeling low I sip on a half cup of coconut water and I can say that I notice a huge difference in my energy and physical ability.
You can read more awesome info about coconut water, “natures sport drink” HERE.
So, this morning I made a really quick and simple yet super tasty energy boosting smoothie that I wanted to share! Not only is is loaded with potassium, but its full of fiber, immune-boosting vitamins and minerals plus antioxidants! I’m calling it my Banana and Pear Energy Boosting Smoothie.
You can read about the great benefits of bananas here and pears here if you’d like. It’s always a great thing to be knowledgeable about and really know what your putting into your body. This is especially important for people with MG or any other immune issues. What you eat can either hurt you, or greatly help you. Watch for my post on immune boosting Super Foods as well as my list of Foods To Avoid.
And now, I present you with the yummy treat!
Banana and Pear Energy Boosting Smoothie
- 1/2 Pear
- 1/2 frozen Banana
- 1/2 cup water (or almond, coconut or hemp milk)
- 1/2 cup Ice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp Chia or ground flax seeds
Chop the pear and banana into smaller chunks so it will blend easily. Throw it all into the blender and blend until smooth! So simple. :)
You can also be adventurous and add a hand full of raw spinach or kale to the mixture for an even greater immune boost! You wont even taste it, I promise.
