Smoothie Project 'Crazy Healthy' Recipe to boost energy

By 4:34 PM ,

Have you started feeling tired and stressed? Most people these days are doing a lot activities but not with a lot of energy. To help you, I'm sharing this "Crazy Healthy" smoothie recipe from Catherine McCord, founder of healthy-eating destination Weelicious and organic food delivery service One Potato.

Catherine shared a story about how she came up with the idea for "Crazy Healthy" smoothie recipe from her husband.

"My sweet husband went through a period where he was burning the candle at both ends. He was traveling nonstop and working sixteen-hour days, six to seven days a week. He wasn’t sleeping or getting any exercise and felt totally rundown.

Each morning, however, he would get out of bed, after just a few hours of sleep, to take the kids to school and pull out an outrageous amount of nutrient-dense ingredients in order to make what I’ve always called his Crazy Healthy Smoothie.

I had never seen so many ingredients shoved into a blender, but I knew that smoothie was more than just a meal for him. It was the one thing that kept him feeling nourished and happy.

This is a slightly pared-down version, but if you want to make it closer to his original, add the super boosts and as many other fruits and vegetables as you like. This is truly health in a massive glass."

About The Smoothie Project

A longtime personal passion project of Catherine's, THE SMOOTHIE PROJECT (December 17, 2019/Abrams) was inspired by a challenging health situation with her son. After family doctors couldn’t help, she turned to her experience with nutrition and culinary training at ICE for an answer, researching until she discovered a surprisingly simple solution—smoothies.

When she started sharing her family’s experience and favorite recipes online, she ignited a smoothie movement as people began to see how smoothies can be a force for change in their lives too.
