A drink for healthy skin

Ingredients in this mornings drink: Amazing Grass, fresh strawberries, raw honey, Udo's oil, frozen berries, Kyo-Green and some fresh blueberries.

Last night my sister made the comment, "I guess you are not taking the Udo's oil anymore because I never see it on the blog."

Just so you know, eating too much fat is an issue for most of the people in my family so the subject of fat content comes up a lot.

I told her, "I am still taking the Udo's oil. I have it everyday in my drink."

And it occurred to me that I should mention the biggest reason I drink this everyday. I drink this for my skin.

If any of you are prone to skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis or just plain dry skin - it is really important to get in a healthy dose of essential fatty acids and antioxidants everyday.

So what do the ingredients in my drink do?

- Udo's oil is a complete blend of 3, 6, and 9 omega fatty acids. Getting enough essential fatty acids each day is a must for healthy skin.

-Amazing Grass provides tons of greens which helps balance acidic ph levels and boosts your immune system. Also eating lots of greens in your diet promotes glowing skin.

- Berries provide a healthy dose of antioxidants and taste great.

- Raw honey is an anti-inflammatory and also boosts immune function.

Those are the 'must have' ingredients for my drink. Today I also added in some fresh berries and some coconut butter.

The white dots are the coconut butter and the small amber colored droplets are the Udo's oil.

I add in a little something different each day. Sometimes I add in some fresh spinach, bee pollen or some brewers yeast. 

The most important thing is that I want it to taste delicious because I want to keep this habit going.

So that is the story of my daily drink. 

Do you have something you take everyday just for your health?
