This smoothie is basic AF but you have to start somewhere! One of the biggest things I see when I look at my student’s 3 day food recall is the immense amount of sugar overload from Naked Juices, Acai Bowls, or loaded fruit smoothies. The nutrients in those items might be great but if you don’t have some fiber, protein, and fat to even you out, your blood sugar isn’t going to be very happy with you.
You might even be consuming all your fruit for the day in a smoothie and for some that might be great but me? I like to chew most of my food and smoothies are for emergencies or fast nutrition after a workout or for a quick breakfast on the go.
My favorite seed addition is chia and here’s why… omega 3 (anti-inflammatory) fatty acids, fiber, and protein! There are also quite a few micronutrients such as calcium, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus in there too!
This smoothie is also loaded with antioxidant rich berries, a loaded cup of spinach, and some plant protein and other superfoods while being on the moderate sugar level.
Heres what you need!
