When I think back on what first jumpstarted me to start living a healthier lifestyle, the first thing I started to do was make my signature green smoothie every morning! I add plant based protein to help keep me full throughout the day and extra fiber to make sure I stay regular 😉 and of course LOTS and LOTS of greens. My philosophy on health is you want the food you put inside your body to heal you from the inside out. When you eat good you FEEL good. So here is my signature green smoothie that I literally drink EVERY day! Of course modify to your liking but every ingredient I add is important for a complete nutritious breakfast.
1 handful of greens (I use spinach/arugula combo, but you can use kale or swiss chard as well!)
Spinach and arugula are both high in Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
1/2 handful of parsley
Increases immune function, anti-inflammatory, and detoxes your kidneys!
1/2 handful of dandelion greens
Promotes liver health and aids blood sugar control.
1/4 cup of Organic frozen wild blueberries (Can also sub for blackberries or raspberries)
Blueberries are high in antioxidants and help protect against aging and cancer!
1/2 of a banana
Bananas are HIGH in potassium, aid in digestion and can help beat gastrointestinal issues.
1 scoop of Nutiva Hi-Fiber Hemp Protein
Hemp protein is the easiest protein to digest. Hemp is also great for heart health because it’s high in Omega 3 fatty acids.
1 teaspoon of Psyllium Husk
Great for extra added fiber to help with digestion!
1-2 teaspoons of chia seeds
Chia seeds are rich in antioxidants and provide good sources of fiber, iron, and calcium.
My favorite liquid to use to blend with fruits and veggies in smoothies because it’s not only great for hydration but also doesn’t make the smoothie consistency super thick.
1 dropper of Sakara life or any other brand of Chlorophyll
Chlorophyll is great for detoxification, weight loss, and skin healing.
Blend all the ingredients together and enjoy your nutritious and delicious green smoothie!
