A review: Dr. Hyman’s Detox Shake

Have you heard of Dr. Mark Hyman's 10 Day Detox Diet? What about The Blood Sugar Solution? The Blood Sugar Solution is undoubtedly one of my favorite nutrition books EVER! Yeah, that's right.

So anyway, it was Saturday night. My husband and I just finished watching a super funny movie (The Internship) when I stumbled upon Dr. Hyman's PBS lecture/infomercial. Sexy for a late night, I know.

I was so intrigued by this morning shake that he introduced on the show that I HAD to try it. I am usually not a huge breakfast person. I lack the time and energy to make myself breakfast after I have gotten the kids ready. So this shake seemed super simple, fast, and nutritious.

The ingredients are what attracted me to this gem of a smoothie:

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut butter
  • 1/2 cup mixed frozen blueberries & cranberries
  • half lemon with peel
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

So here's my review: WOWZA! I loooved this smoothie. I am usually not huge into smoothie and was a little thrown off that there weren't any veggies but this smoothie sure packs a protein punch! For someone who doesn't eat meat, like me, I felt the protein in here was even more important than the veggies I was missing. I made up for it with a salad later in the day, a green juice, or a simple saute. And I mean WAY later in the day! This smoothie kept me full MUCH longer than I anticipated.

Let's address the elephant in the room. Yes, this smoothie does have a considerate amount of calories. However, if you are eating a CLEAN, WHOLE FOODS diet, you NEVER need to worry about calories. This is especially true when you are detoxing your body from the SAD (standard American diet). So give this smoothie a try and I highly recommend you purchase one or both of these books.
