Q: Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, I work crazy hours and am rarely home to make myself good food. Can you recommend anything to make and eat quickly that is really healthy?

A: Yes. Of course I recommend green smoothies, because they are quick to make, and you can put them in the fridge for up to two days (shake it up well before drinking). A friend of mine loves Living Fuel, which is a great product with live, dehydrated foods for excellent vitamin/mineral and especially enzyme content. However, it’s about $6.75/serving! Some time ago, I looked for an alternative affordable by more people and found The Ultimate MealThe Ultimate Meal, which you can order for the best price on AmazonThe Ultimate Meal, and the cost is less than $2.00 per serving. I regularly use this product myself.

Things I love about The Ultimate Meal:

  1. It takes 60 seconds to make in the blender.
  2. It’s primarily made up of sprouted quinoa and millet, then brown rice and yellow pea protein, then flax seed, spirulina, and broccoli. Great ingredients, freeze-dried so enzymes are mostly intact.
  3. It contains every nutrient necessary for optimal health and eliminates the need for vitamin supplements.
  4. It has 16 grams of protein, which should make those worried about plant foods not having enough protein quite happy. Also 8 grams of fiber!
  5. With half an apple, and a banana, it blends to be a crazy green color, but it tastes pretty good.
  6. The shake, with apple and banana, has 350 calories and keeps you satisfied until the next meal.
  7. This can be a meal replacement shake twice a day. This would be SO much better for dieters than SlimFast and all the other chemical-additives, corn-syrup and cheap-ingredients-added shakes and soy diet products on the market.
  8. Most of the ingredients are organic, and it has 4 grams of good fatty acids, no soy or whey, no genetically modified foods, no yeast, salt, or sugars (just stevia), no animal products.
  9. It lasts 3 years on the shelf (2 months after opening the can, so freeze some if you won’t use the whole can in that time). It’s great for food storage.
