Soy Shake with Strawberries:  1 cup lite soy milk, plain, 6 to 8 frozen strawberries, 1 scoop Nutrilite Protein Powder, 1 stick Nutrilite Intestifiber.  Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  You can substitute any fruit, fresh or frozen.  One of my favorites is a banana and a tablespoon of cocoa powder.  The Nutrilite supplements can be found in my online store

Blackberry Mango Shake:  1 cup fresh blackberries, 4 large strawberries, handful of frozen mango, 1 cup apple juice.  Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.

Fresh Vegetable Soup:  Place 1 stalk celery, 1 seeded red bell pepper , handful fresh parsley, 1/2 cup water, in the blender and blend until smooth.  Add 2 medium baked and peeled beets and 1 baked carrot.  Puree until smooth. Salt and pepper to taste.  Add juice from half a lemon or lime and possibly a tablespoon of greek nonfat yogurt.  

Baked Beets and Carrots:  It’s hard to blend some of the vegetables and I don’t have a juicer, yet, so I place the beets and carrots in a foil pouch and bake them in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.  Just until they are tender.  Then peel the beets and puree.
