4 eggs (as natural raised as possible)
1/2 can of Organic pumpkin mix (find in the baking isle)
1 tablespoon local raw honey
Cinnamon to taste
*extra credit add a teaspoon of MCT oil or coconut oil to up the healthy omega 3’s
Combine all ingredients in a blender with ice then blend till ice is mixed into drink. This will stay cold for a few hours if you take it with you to the gym to drink afterwards.

Raw honey that is sourced locally helps your immune system function by introducing local bee pollen on a regular basis. Basically if you can find a way to have a small amount of raw honey everyday you won’t be as affected by sessional allergies.
Cinnamon has been shown to have positive health effects all across the board, from lowering the glycemic index of a food to improving someones chances against cancer and it tastes pretty awesome.
