I wanted to put greens in this but didn't have much left in the house this morning. I will have to get more this weekend because I am going to seriously challenge myself to do a smoothie each morning - at least 5 times a week - Monday thru Friday - starting today!
I know pretty weird to start on a Friday! And don't get me wrong! I do my fair share of smoothies but the challenge to myself is to be more consistent with them. I tend to go in spurts. And I LOVE my greens but I need to up that amount and smoothies are an easy way to do that!
Why Activated Barley?
Barley has high concentrations of age fighting antioxidants and health boosting beta-glucans. Beta-glucans improve immune function, raise energy levels without sugar spikes, and reduce cholesterol. They use a Swedish method of low temperature steam, the barley is taken to the brink of germination before packaging. This suspends the barley at the highest point of bio-energy where it contains the best mix of protein, fiber, enzymes, and the ultimate slow burning carbohydrate. It ranks low on the glycemic index, has high tocotrienol and beta-glucan levels, thousands of active enzymes, is a slow burning carbohydrate chain, provides long-term energy for any workout, and it’s the ultimate slow burning carb.
