Morning Smoothie Ingredients

We discussed a simple smoothie with three ingredients that makes a delicious and healthy breakfast, snack, or meal replacement. Just mix a heaping spoonful of these three ingredients in water:

If I need a faster snack / meal replacement, I just mix Vega Chocolate with water and drink it. 

I typically mix the powders into water using either a very cheap blender or by shaking a high quality water bottle. I would prefer to find a non-plastic based solution, but these are what I use right now.

Putting Supplements in Capsules Yourself

I use size 000 capsules and the capsule holder for size 000. Size 000 is the largest size because I prefer ingesting as much as possible at once. If you prefer a different capsule size, I suggest consulting this capsule size comparison chart

Fact Check

Linus Pauling won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1954 and the Nobel Peace Prize in 1962. He is the only person to have been awarded two unshared Nobel Prizes, and one of two people to be awarded Nobel Prizes in different fields. He proposed the concept of vitamin C mega dosing, which to my knowledge has not as of yet been proven out by the consensus of scientific studies.
