Today he is also sharing with us his recipe for a Green Machine Smoothie.
This bright green smoothie is from Dr. Mark Hyman‘s book, Eat Fat, Get Thin, and it gets its creaminess from nutrient-dense avocado, an excellent source of all nine essential amino acids that our bodies need to build muscle, as well as the omega-3 fats our brains and hearts need to be healthy. And this recipe includes green tea, which is loaded with bioactive compounds, helps increase fat burning.

- 1/2 small avocado
- 2 tbsp hemp seeds
- Juice of 1 lime
