    Best Greens Smoothies

    Are you interested in learning how to incorporate green smoothies into your diet? This guide will help you learn about the benefits of green smoothies and includes recipes and some that you can make right away! 

    What is a Greens Smoothie?

    A greens smoothie is made with healthy fruits and vegetables like spinach, kale, and lettuce. You can mix in fruits as well, and there is no right or wrong way to add in veggies. 

    Some vegetables like kale have a very pronounced flavor, while others like lettuce can be milder. Based on your specific tastes, you can create combinations with almond milk to create a healthy blended drink that makes it a great meal or snack! 

    Learn more about greens in our Wild Guide.

    Benefits of a Greens Smoothie

    Green smoothies provide many benefits because of the ingredients they are made with. You can essentially get all the nutrients from a day’s worth of fruits and vegetables in one serving! As a result, they are good for digestion, promote healthy skin and nails, reduce inflammation, and improve your overall health. 

    When you add in foods that are high in fiber and protein, you will also feel fuller and more satisfied throughout the day. Similarly, they include a high content of vitamins and minerals without any added sugars, so your body will thank you in the long run. 

    Here are some of the benefits of common ingredients found in greens smoothies:

    • Avocados: contain good fats that help your skin stay hydrated
    • Spinach: include high levels of folate that repair DNA and renew your skin
    • Kale: has antioxidants and fiber that can reduce inflammation and support digestion

    Ingredients:

    Instructions:

    Place all the ingredients in a blender for two to three minutes, or until you get a texture that is creamy and smooth. At that point, taste the smoothie and add more almond milk if it is too thick. You can also add a sweetener if you choose!

    Banana & Spinach Greens Smoothie

    Ingredients:

    Instructions:

    Add all of your ingredients into the blender, starting with the dry ingredients. Start with your blender on low and slowly increase the speed for 50 to 60 seconds. The goal is to get the mixture nice and smooth – make sure to taste it and add any sweeteners if needed!

    The Wild Food Super Greens Powder Blend is the perfect addition to any smoothie recipe. It is packed with carotenes, probiotics, and superfoods to support immune and digestive health – all you need is one scoop, and you are good to go!

    Article Of The Week

    Okay, WTF is Ethereum.

    Ethereum is a cryptocurrency like bitcoin. It has been rising in popularity (and price) lately; most cryptocurrencies have. Cryptos are going to be big players in the future, possibly the only players given enough time.

    These things are fun to learn about. They expand your awareness of the world and concepts such as economics, monetary policy, technology, and so on. And if you have no utility or interest in cryptocurrencies, you should still learn about them for curiosity sake.

    Be curious and interested = A solid plan for a happy, active life.

    Quote Of The Week

    “Don’t worry about people stealing your design work. Worry about the day they stop.”

    —Jeffrey Zeldman, A List Apart Publisher

    We live in a world of abundance.

    There is enough to go around, and as technology improves, this will become more and more true for every human on Earth.

    Yet there is a plethora of scarcity-minded behavior that infects many—and it holds them back.

    I remember many times when I’ve discussed business ideas with friends and they invariably start comparing what other people/companies are doing as if that’s a sign that there is no opportunity.

    But then I say something like, “That’s exactly why there is an opportunity, because someone is there doing it right now.”

    And while they might agree with me, and while it might seem intuitive to them, I always feel like they aren’t really getting it.

    Think of it this way: With billions of people having more access and opportunity than any other time in history, you better believe that someone has at least thought of your “billion dollar idea.”

    The point here is this: you have very little reason to not do something that someone else is doing. After all, you have a fully funded and free public-facing R&D department at your disposal (pay attention to what they are doing and notice what works and what doesn’t).

    Remember the quote by Picasso, “Good artists copy, great artists steal.”

    Finally, forget the illusion of the original idea. As Newton said, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

    Why put butter in coffee?

    Why put butter in coffee?

    Have you ever put butter in your coffee?

    Butter in coffee is delicious.

    And it's growing in popularity, so much so that you can now find butter coffee on the menu in many Whole Foods.

    Part of the reason it is growing in popularity in the states is the connection between drinking a butter coffee and fasting (skipping breakfast).

    Adding butter to your coffee (and MCT oil) is a great way to skip breakfast in the mornings while still getting a boost in energy from fat calories and the effects of fasting.

    Without going deep into intermittent fasting, try the following: skip eating whole food and try coffee and/or butter coffee instead. Then eat later in the day whenever you feel hungry, ideally 4-8 hours after waking.

    Below is our recipe—The Wild Butter Brew—but before we get to that, I want to talk about fat for a hot minute.

    After all, the mass of people still believes that fat is unhealthy.

    ::Sigh::

    Fat is not bad for you. Fat is an essential nutrient for humans.

    Essential nutrients mean if you don't eat them, you'll die.

    How can something that we have to eat to live to be "bad" for us?

    Well, here's a perfect example of something counterintuitive for a reason: because it's counter to intuition... or in other words, it's wrong!

    All that being said, the kind of fat matters. Fats that are highly processed and that come from seeds—canola, soy, etc.—are what you want to stay away from.

    Fats that come from animals—grass-fed beef, fatty fish, wild game—are not only ideal but the most nutritionally packed foods on the planet.

    This article is supposed to be about butter coffee, so I won't expand on the topic of fat anymore. Read the Wild Foods Guide To Fat for the full skinny on fat.

    "Butter was demonized and replaced with margarine, one of recent memory's most supremely stupid nutritional swap-outs. We discovered that the supposedly healthier margarine was laden with trans fats, a really bad kind of fat created by using a kind of turkey baster to inject hydrogen atoms into a liquid (unsaturated) fat making it more solid and giving it a longer shelf life. (Any time you read "partially hydrogenated oil" or "hydrogenated oil" in a list of ingredients, that means the food in question contains trans fats.) Unlike saturated fats from whole foods such as butter, trans fats (at least the manmade kind) actually do increase the risk for heart disease and strokes!" 

    -Jonny Bowden, The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won't Prevent Heart Disease-and the Statin-Free Plan That Will

    Butter coffee is a delicious and nutritious way to start your day. You can use it to fast in the morning and skip whole food, or you can add it to whatever you already do in the mornings.

    Personally, a mug of Wild Butter Coffee is all I have in the mornings. This keeps me going for 4-8 hours before my first meal. (To learn more about intermittent fasting, check out Leangains.com)

    Wild Butter Coffee

    Ingredients:

    • 10 oz Wild Coffee (Organic, Fair Trade, Single-Origin, Ultra-Premium Beans 
    • 1 TBSP Non-alkalized cocoa powder (Available here)
    • 1 TBSP Wild MCT Oil (Buy MCT Oil here)
    • 1 TBSP of Kerrygold Butter (or 2 tbsp, this stuff is the ticket)
    • Optional: 1 dash of Wild Vanilla Powder (Available here)
    • Optional: 1/2 TSP Organic Cinnamon
    • Optional: 1/2-1 TSP Xylitol from maple (not corn)
    • Optional: Add a scoop of Wild Whey after step 3 after coffee has cooled then shake lightly to combine. Avoid blending or adding Wild Whey to hot liquids as this can damage the beneficial immunoglobulins!

    Tools:

    • Preferred brewing vessel
    • Mason jar or mug
    • Blender

    Process:

    • Brew coffee with preferred method (Scroll down for brewing methods​)
    • Place hot coffee in a blender with 1-2 tbsp MCT oil, 1-2 tbsp pastured butter, 1 -2 tsp of Wild Chocolate powder, a dash of Wild Vanilla powder, and desired sweetener
    • Blend until frothy
    • If you prefer it hot, drink your beverage now. If not, proceed to the next step

    The "Wild Butter Brew" Iced​

    • Add 4 oz Wild Cold Brew and lightly shake to combine.
    • Place Butter Brew in the freezer to cool down for 3-5 minutes.
    • Remove from freezer
    • Add ice and give it a shake.
    • Enjoy!

    Common errors making butter coffee:

    • Blending too aggressively. Blend/Pulse in short bursts.
    • Using coconut oil over MCT oil. Coconut oil leaves a coconut aftertaste and doesn't have the same smooth consistency as MCT, which has trouble emulsifying.
    • Not using the best beans. Wild Coffee beans are fresh roasted, single-origin, fair trade, and organic. They are ultra-premium and uber-fresh. Using quality coffee makes a HUGE difference in how your butter brew comes out and how you'll feel after you drink it.

    How To Make Buttered Espresso

    Some tips for Butter Espresso:

    • Let the butter come to room temperature for a few minutes. It will thoroughly blend if it's too cold, and you'll end up with (delicious) chunks of butter in your espresso.
    • Blend for 30-60 seconds. Because there is such a small amount of liquid in espresso, it takes some time to blend the butter and form the emulsion thoroughly.
    • Test the amount of butter. I've successfully used up to 2 tablespoons of butter in a double shot of espresso. However, 1 TBSP is plenty. Test and find what you like.
    • Use unsalted pastured butter
