Morning boost

Dark and gloomy and rainy here in Philadelphia- it’s especially difficult to stay awake and write today, and I have a submission due! This should do it: 1 grapefruit, 1 banana, 1.5 cups of frozen grapes (tastes like candy!), 3 frozen strawberries, a cup of kale, half a lemon, a cup of almond milk. Amazing vitamin C boost, and some added tryptophan to fight the blues from the grey weather. Tryptophan is the natural precursor of dopamine- a neurotransmitter in the brain responsible for that high we get when something great strikes. Enjoy!

    I love your blog entry set up. Bit of background, a recipe, and then an explanation of the health benefits. I’ve learned a lot in the last two days!

  2. Hi Tatyana, which of those recipe ingredients contain tryptophan here? Just curious because I didn’t realize that any of those contain tryptophan. Thanks!
