Tonight’s dinner ended up being a mix of turkey fajita leftovers and some steak. My wonderful husband offered to have the leftovers so my son and I could have the steak. This worked better for me with my 4 day rotation diet. He’s the best!
So I thought I would share one of my favorite breakfast meals. It is fast and keeps me satisfied until lunch.
Berrylicious Gluten Free Shake
This is a great way to start the day. You can add in the supplements that you want to include in your diet. I like to have FLAX and extra greens. I also use the whey protein as I can tolerate it. If you eat any type of dairy adding greek yogurt is great. But be careful to read all labels. Many yogurts have sugars and stabilizers. FAGE is a gluten free greek yogurt that I use to eat and I’ve been told that kefir is also good . You want to also look for yogurt with Live and Active Cultures. These are the yogurts that are a good source of probiotics. It’s a good thing to have some type of protein in your smoothie. Some in my house use peanut butter, almond butter or macadamia nut butter.
The Greens+ that I use contains soy so if you are avoiding that there are others that are soy free. Amazing Grass GreenSuper Foods is another great supplement. I find these supplements in my Whole Foods, local health stores and online in my Amazon store.
½ cup Blueberry juice (low in natural sugars)
1/3 cup coconut water
1 scoop FiPro FLAX sprouted
3 tsp Greens+
1 scoop Whey Protein Powder
1 cup frozen organic mixed berries-blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries (low in sugars)
I put the ingredients into the blender in the order written. Always put your liquid in first. If you find your smoothie is too thick and your blender looks like it’s going to start smoking, add more liquid and stir. Then blend. I start my blender off on chop and mix to get the frozen fruit broken down. I work my way up to liquefy. It works best if you use frozen fruit instead of fresh. This will give you the thick milkshake like consistency. I use to top my smoothie off with a plastic straw but I decided the landfills didn’t need my straws.
Diane – Thank you for all of the work you put into this blog. It is always full of the latest info and I find myself turning to it over and over! Keep up the good work.

Hi Diane, I'm Peggy Burton's daughter, friends of your in-laws. Just mentioned to my Mom that I had given up dairy about 3 weeks ago and am now trying to go gluten free. Would love to hear from you and any advice you have for a newbie to all this! Julie Ford
