This smoothie contains quite the powerhouse nutrients, like calcium and magnesium from spinach, antioxidants from blueberries, heart healthy fats from chia and plant based hemp protein.
If you’re like me (and like most nutritionists out there), you’ll notice that we have a thing for our green smoothies! Honestly, I just can’t get enough of them.
I am SO happy that spring is in the air and the warmer temperatures are upon us. This really gets me into green smoothie mode! I have a hard time preparing cold smoothies in the winter. Especially with -20 temperatures, it’s hard to want to start your day with something so chilly.
I find it so interesting that my body naturally adjusts to the weather. As soon as the weather gets warmer I naturally crave more salads, raw foods and smoothies and juices. During the winter I am a sucker for soups and stews and heartier meals. Do you find this with yourself as well?
On April 13th I’ll be launching my Spring Detox and I am so excited to share with you the incredible spring menu I’ve prepared. the recipes are light, delicious and incredibly detoxifying. It’s important to give our bodies the right nutrients as we switch from winter to spring and I’ve put together the perfect plan to help you do so. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter (sign up to the right) to receive all the details as to when the detox will be launching.
Our 21-day meal plan and recipe guide is over 70 pages! It’s full of nutritious and healthy recipes, plus I’ve put together amazing bonuses, like our Spring into Exercise Guide, our 30 page Complete Guide to Detoxing (full of detox tips and tricks and liver cleansing info) and so much more! Can you tell I’m excited 🙂
