The Green Flash

ADVERTISEMENT

Everyone always asks me what I eat on charter, and how I stay in reasonable shape with all that temptation at my fingertips.

The answer: A balanced diet.

When your day begins long before the sun rises, and the galley is filled with aromas of bacon and croissants, along with an array of other aromatic culinary delights, the beast in your belly will awaken, ravenous. But this is not what you need to endure the whole day. Leave the processed sugar and fats for those on vacation.

I personally cannot afford to be weighed down by heavy morning meals before a 17-hour day. And with my mobility restricted to the galley, I need something to give the ol’ metabolism a kick start first off.

The Green Flash is an energy, digestion, antioxidant and metabolism booster. Drink one on an empty stomach allows the body to absorb the vitamins and nutrients easier and quicker. Be sure to eat something light a little later on, and by then your metabolism and you will be firing on all cylinders.

Ingredients:

2 kiwifruit, peeled (Vitamin C)

2 stalks celery (fiber, Vitamin K)

1 lemon, peeled (detox, Vitamin C)

1 Tbsp fresh ginger (immune boost, motion sickness)

1 cup spinach (fiber, protein, multiple vitamins)

1 cup watercress (calcium, Vitamin A)

1 tsp coconut oil (antioxidant)

2 cups coconut water (electrolytes, hydration)

2 cups water (energy, hydration)

1 tsp chia seeds (energy, stamina)

1 tsp flax (digestion, antioxidant, Omega 3)

1 tsp turmeric (metabolism, antioxidant, digestion)

4 large mint leaves (mental fatigue, flavor)
