Here are a few additions you can use to boost your smoothie and make your body function even better.
Let’s face it, getting quality whole food nutrition all the time consuming.
A good quality blender can be a time saver and in the long run a potential life saver if you are using it to make green drinks (not margaritas).
Here are a few additives that I like to add into my smoothies that don’t destroy the taste but help to supercharge it even more.
Collagen - Great for skin and joints collagen consists of the building blocks of your body. You can gnaw on a beef bone with tendon and ligaments attached or use the hydrolyzed version that does not affect the flavour what so ever.
Tumeric - Waking up with a headache, feeling tired and foggy or a lot of chronic joint pain throughout your body you should consider this. This is a natural anti-inflammatory and can help lower your risk of some major lifestyle conditions. Look for one with black pepper for better absorption.
Greens supplement - The more the merrier. I tend have the habit of putting it in there even if I’m using a ton spinach or kale.
Here’s one of my favourites that I make variations of regularly.
Handful of spinach
Handful of kale
1 scoop of tumeric
1 scoop of greens powder
1.5 tbsp of hydrolyzed collagen.
