Then I assure you, if you add this one thing to your daily routine consistently, you will see and feel all of those results. For years I couldn’t imagine drinking my greens, but now I do it on an almost daily basis and it has changed my life.
Here’s Today’s Recipe:
Organic Spinach about 2 cups
Organic Romaine Lettuce about 1 cup
Organic Kale about 1 1/2 cups
2 stalks of Celery
1 Organic Apple
2 Tablespoons Milled Flaxseeds
1 Tablespoon Chia Seed
2 teaspoons of Coconut Yogurt
1 cup Almond Milk
1 Scoop Vega (Optional)
Most mornings I blend without any Vega or yogurt, but this morning I had no bananas, so I needed the flavor. Bananas are the key to countering the sometimes bitter taste of the greens, so be sure to add one in.
This morning I started with this spread…
I blended my greens, celery and almond milk first…
Then I added in my apple, seeds, yogurt, and Vega…
When people say Food is Medicine, this is what they’re talking about. It is rare, as a working mommy, that I can down this many greens. So this smoothie is crucial for me to maintain a baseline of energy. It is also very high in tons of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. If you’re interested in why I chose these ingredients, let’s take a closer look:
Spinach- proven to reduce inflammation, high in antioxidants that protect against disease, and amps up the immune system by delivering tons of Vitamin C, A, Manganese, Zinc and Selenium.
Kale- Cancer Fighting Powerhouse; Natural detoxifier.
Celery- Tons of water for hydration, Good source of dietary fiber, Helps lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
Flaxseeds- Plant-based source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids; Improves skin, hair and nails.
Chia Seeds-Protein, Antioxidants, Vitamin E, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Balances blood sugar.
All of these foods give you a plethora of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that protect your body and fight disease at the cellular level. When you do this, when you give your cells what they need and help your body detox the toxins and excess that it doesn’t need, you will naturally lose weight and feel better.
