Green Protein Smoothie Recipe

 

 

Not Kidding, I woke up this morning believing it was Wednesday until I checked my phone! Hello #coronavirus2020

Today I am sharing one of my regular green smoothie recipes. I love how simple and with a just a few ingredients I can get a fibre-loaded breakfast that supports my bowel health.

Sometimes with stress and not eating proper food, I get a little constipated and plenty of fibre does the work for me.

By the way, read how my clients got relief from chronic constipation just a few days of working with me and using the food plan I prepared for her. Read here

We have about 5 favourite family breakfast recipes that we interchange and this is one of them. Although this smoothie is a perfect post-workout smoothie or kids healthy treat idea.

I aim to eat up to 7-9 cups of veggies per day and sometimes a green smoothie is a brilliant way to up the veggies. I feel less bloated if I have enough veggies on my diet.

When making a smoothie though, always remember to keep the fruit intake low and the veggies high. Adding way too many fruits will increase the amount of sugar per meal (even if it’s natural sugars)

And not forgetting a good amount of protein and fat to help balance the blood sugar level.  Don’t try to make ice cream with your smoothie, if you want a smoothie, just go and have ice cream.
