There’s a story that wants to be told about Shapeshift. How it got its name and why it is the single most concentrated, balanced, nutrient dense, high performance whole food meal on the planet. Now that’s a bold statement but here’s the truth about Shapeshift. If you are a Shapeshift fan and like us, you can’t live without your daily fix, we understand. Its no ordinary protein smoothie blend. Truth is, it's very earthy-tasting and to some people, a bit savory on the palate. Though after a week or two of eating Shapeshift, your taste buds tend to change. You’ll find you are craving sugar less and maybe even your taste for coffee will decrease. After awhile, those who dislike the taste at first come to love it. You’ll wake up craving the goodness of it in your body. Shapeshift is the whole meal deal. It was created as the perfect alkalizing meal built on a strong foundation of the finest hemp seed protein powder available. The vision Charles and I had in mind was to put together a whole food meal blend of the highest vibrational, easily assimilated nutrients possible. We added whole food blended bio-available vegetables to a foundational superfood, hemp protein powder. This created the optimal environment for homeostasis, cell rebuilding, and maintaining a strong immune system. The result was a complete plant protein shake that packed a powerful punch. We topped it with a delicious combination of cocoa powder (aka Chocolate) and chai spices. Our intention was to combine the ingredients using a proprietary process that would keep the foods as close to the perfection of nature as possible. We succeeded and Shapeshift was born. We wanted to guarantee that Shapeshift would deliver on its promise of balancing the internal environment that supports the body’s innate intelligence for self healing and cleansing. So for the final touches, Charles and I traveled to San Francisco to take our newly formulated Shapeshift to a Doctor (Ortho molecular nutritionist) whom we had visited half a dozen times for personal assessments and sessions on his electro-dermal testing equipment. We left the Shapeshift blend with him to test a cross section of his patients response to it. After testing a few hundred patients, the results were astounding to say the least. All his test subjects responded in homeostasis to Shapeshift. Meaning, every single person's body who tested it, tested positive (and there were hundreds of people). Since that time we haven’t looked back. Charles and I have been making daily Shapeshift blender drinks for the past 10 years and have reaped so many benefits. For me Shapeshift keeps me grounded and feeling real. Over the years it definitely has shifted my shape and raised my consciousness. Thus we named it Shapeshift. It has defined my muscle, group keeping me at an even weight. Our bodies, in their innate intelligence always want to keep realigning with our original DNA blueprint, self correcting and self healing. Give your body the proper tools and food and you will succeed. Another wonderful thing about Shapeshift is, we don’t add anything to our blends except the whole raw ingredients of easily digested plant protein, vegetables, a bit of cacao powder, chai spice and our Catalyze enzyme blend. We don’t add fillers, flow agents, preservatives, lubricants etc. No added nutrient packages to boost the profile. Nothing. Just straight up raw goodness with a side of love and gratitude. A nutritional note on the hemp we put into our Transform and Shapeshift shakes: Raw hemp seeds stand alone as the most significant nutritional food source for humans. Hemp seeds are a rich source of multiple vitamins, minerals, beta phyto sterols, essentials fatty acids (ideal EFA ratio 1:3 Omega 3 to 6) containing all 10 Essential Amino Acids that the body can not produce and must obtain from the food we eat. Hemp also contains a rich supply of chlorophyll and fiber all on its own merit. With all of these great things going for it, we hope you feel more inspired to get Shapeshift into your daily diet.

October has been our cleansing month and now that we are squeaky clean, we need to replenish our bodies with lots of strong healthy microflora to build up our inner ecosystem. Besides taking Conscious Planet's Colonyze (probiotic) nightly, you'll also want increase your inner immunity by making your own homemade Coconut Water Kefir. The benefits of adding kefir to your diet helps to maintain a healthy inner ecosystem which greatly aids digestion and healthy regular elimination; keeps the immune system strong; gives shiny hair, clear skin, bright eyes and a flat abdomen. Equipment you'll need: Mason glass jars and plastic lids (sold in the canning section of Save-On-Foods, health food stores) Do not use metal lids as metal has been known to react with kefir in a way that yields unhealthful elements in your kefir and besides, the kefir will not ferment properly. Make sure you sterilize all materials that will be coming in contact with the kefir or at the very least, wash and rinse in very hot water. The last thing you want is to cultivate a fresh batch of kefir in a container that has traces of bad bacteria. Plastic or wooden spoon Recipe: In a glass bowl add: 1 liter bottle of thawed, unpasteurized organic young Thai Coconut Water - found in most health food stores in the frozen section. Do not use store varieties of coconut water that has been pasteurized. Best brand to purchase is 'Feeding Change'. The coconut water and coconut meat is frozen until ready to use, then thaw. Kefir Starter pack - you can find these in Choices Markets or other health food stores in the refrigerated sections. 1 single starter package 1 probiotic capsule - open cap and add to bowl of coconut water. Colonyze as a probiotic works great. In fact, you can also get consistent results with less work and expense by using a simple quality probiotic capsule without the starter pack if you have difficulty finding a kefir starter pack. Then you would add two capsules of probiotic instead of one. Try both ways and see which is favorable to you. Mix well with a plastic spoon until the starter and probiotic are dissolved. Pour into mason jars as in the picture below, put the plastic lid on jars. Wrap a towel around jars to keep dark. Place jars in your oven. Close oven door. Turn oven light on and the warmth from the oven light is perfect for helping the fermentation process. Its takes about 36 to 48 hour at most. During this time, the probiotics will feed on the sugar in coconut water and leave a slightly fizzy, sour, exlixir. When completed, store in fridge. Take 1/4 cup with meals which greatly aids digestion. Also 1/2 cup at bedtime will establish a healthy inner ecosystem. Studies show that during sleep overnight, the microflora reproduce faster. In the morning, combine a 1/2 cup of kefir with unsweetened cherry juice or black current juice as a great wake-up tonic. Be healthy, be happy, be smart...make kefir.
