Always add and mix the protein last.

The Health Benefits of Protein is that it is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis. Protein is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the "building blocks" for healthy bodies. Protein has a number of different roles in the body including the following: Repair body cells, Build and repair muscles and bones, Provide a source of energy and Control many of the important processes in the body related to metabolism.
The body is able to make non-essential amino acids from other amino acids in the body. However, the body is not able to make essential amino acids and the only way to get them is by eating high quality protein foods. Protein sources that contain all of the essential amino acids are called complete proteins.

1 mango
2 peaches
300g low-fat yogurt
1 - 2 scoops of Protein powder ( whey, soy, hemp or pea etc)
200ml rice milk and Ice

Notes: *Diabetics - reduce the amount of fruit by at least half, you can also add a teaspoon of ground flax to increase the fibre, which will slow the uptake of sugars into your system.

Wellness Tip
Boost Your Immune System
Throughout our lives, our immune systems are under assault from environmental toxins. Living in crowded cities, traveling frequently in airplanes, and spending time in day care centers and schools all expose us to many more germs than people had to deal with in the past. We can protect and strengthen our immunity by eating right, getting enough activity and rest, practicing stress reduction, and cultivating healthy emotional states. There are also several herbs, such as astragalus, that can help enhance immune function. Obtained from the root of Astragalus membranaceous in the pea family, astragalus has a long history in Chinese medicine, where it is used to ward off colds and flu.

Recipe
Smoked Fish with Horseradish Sauce
Category: Fish
Description: If you have never dealt with a fresh horseradish root, be prepared for an experience. In the days before food processors, grating the root by hand was just like being exposed to tear gas. Freshly ground horseradish with vinegar and a little salt completely outclasses the prepared varieties sold in stores, and mixed with low-fat sour cream, it becomes a wonderful condiment for fish, boiled or baked potatoes, and other cooked vegetables.
