Shake Things Up with Our Yeast-Free Smoothie

August 3, 2011

Today is day 9 for those who accepted our 30 day yeast-free eating challenge. How are you doing? Many have posted comments on the yeast-free forum and it looks like you all are doing a great job! Congratulations on setting a goal and taking action to be successful. I’ve said it before, but I want to say again how very proud I am of each one of you.

Detoxifying your body from yeast overgrowth has many health benefits such as reducing inflammation, heartburn, indigestion, acid reflux, abdominal bloating, excess gas and belching. Eating yeast-free (along with taking certain supplements) to rid your body of yeast overgrowth can also improve your brain function and your energy, as well as offer many other health benefits.

The staff at Hotze Health & Wellness Center is doing great on the yeast-free eating program. It’s actually been fun! This past week, the staff enjoyed collaborating in a Yeast-Free Potluck Lunch that was absolutely delicious. We hope to share with you many of the creative recipes contributed by your fellow Yeast-Free with Me Team members.

Are you beginning to fall into a beverage rut drinking water, unsweetened tea, water and oh yeah, more water? I completely understand, so let’s give you a few ideas to get you out of that rut! Yeast-free beverages include water, coffee and tea and certain types of milks such as coconut milk, almond milk and rice milk.

Drinking hot coffee or tea can be a wonderful way to relax. One of my favorite coffees is Starbucks House Blend. I also enjoy drinking iced tea with lemon. I recommend that you avoid all decaffeinated coffees and teas unless they are naturally decaffeinated. It’s a little known fact that many drinks are decaffeinated using formaldehyde. It’s nice for keeping that frog from biology class fresh, but it’s not necessarily something I want in my body while I’m alive. I would assume that you would have to agree. Make sure that you look for the phrase “naturally decaffeinated”.

We have already mentioned Zevia, a no calorie soda that uses all-natural ingredients including stevia. This is another great option for a yeast-free beverage.

Today I’d like to give you a few great ideas to shake things up — literally! Here’s a recipe for a yeast-free smoothie. It’s delicious and for me, it can pass as a dessert! Try it, then post a comment to let us know what you think.

Yeast-Free Smoothie

1 scoop chocolate, or vanilla whey protein powder (we recommend Jay Robb’s Protein Powder as it must not contain sugar)
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
1 cup chocolate or vanilla Almond Breeze (unsweetened)
5-6 ice cubes or until desired thickness

In a blender, mix all ingredients listed above. Add enough ice to meet your preference for thickness. Makes one smoothie. Enjoy!

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
