Spring Clean Your Way to a Healthier You
The holidays are over, summer is drawing near, and warmer days at the beach are upon us! To help you feel better, look better, and rid your body of accumulating toxins, I created this “Spring Cleaning Smoothie” that is both cleansing and delicious.
Do you struggle to get in your recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables? Do you skip breakfast because of time restrictions? Do you feel tired or less energetic throughout the day? If you answered yes to any of these, it doesn’t have to be this way!
It’s time to be proactive about your health, especially when there’s a smoothie recipe THIS delicious and beneficial for your mind, body, and soul! Start off your morning with this high-quality, nutritionally-dense smoothie, drink it midday as a snack, or take it on-the-go to the gym. Whatever time of day you enjoy it, it is sure to boost your energy and mood, while curbing cravings. And that’s a win in my book as shorts and swimsuit season nears!
OK, so here’s the recipe:
1 ½ cups dairy-free milk
½ cup pea or broccoli sprouts
¼ teaspoon ginger powder
1 handful mixed greens
3 kale leaves
½ lemon, juiced
dash of cayenne pepper
Optional: 1 T. flax seeds
Add ice as desired, blend and enjoy!
What exactly will this smoothie do for me, you might ask?
Dairy-free milk such as Almond, Coconut, or Hemp Milk are loaded with vitamins, rich in protein, and are packed with minerals. Dairy-free milk is also cholesterol-free and easier to digest! Look for brands that do not have Carrageenan as one of the ingredients.
Broccoli and Pea Sprouts are superfoods shown to have anti-diabetic and antimicrobial properties, improving kidney function, and killing cancer stem cells!
Ginger and Cayenne Pepper act as powerful anti-inflammatories. Cayenne Pepper also acts as an anti-allergen, anti-fungal, and antibacterial!
The additional fruits and vegetables tie in this smoothie providing you with the ultimate cleanse for a healthier liver while riding your body of the toxins that have been building up.
Want an extra boost? Add in a tablespoon of flax seeds. Flax seeds are amazing for your gastrointestinal health, high in Omega-3 fatty acids, packed with antioxidants and are a great source of fiber and magnesium, both of which most people could use more of. Oh, and they’re great for your hair and skin, and support weight loss. One of my favorite boosts for smoothies!
Lastly, don’t make this a one-time thing! Make smoothies part of your daily routine and you’ll be on your way to a happy and healthier you! Trust me, your liver will thank you later!
