Whether you have IBS or simply want to optimize your energy and health with a nutrient packed smoothie, the following recipe is for you!
Start with half a cup of unsweetened, organic kefir for the probiotic, magnesium and calcium contents. Then add one quarter of an avocado, for the gut-healing essential fatty acid benefits and spinach for a healthy dose of antioxidants and soluble fibre. Next, throw in a handful of berries because they contain pectin which is soothing to the digestive system and vitamin C which is healing. Then add lemon to help detoxify your liver and get your digestive juices flowing for the day. And finally, add a fingertip sized slice of ginger for its anti-nausea and digestive stimulating plus soothing properties.
“Only kale can save us now!” reads my favorite t-shirt! And really, is there a green that’s more nutritional? I don’t think so! When I started incorporating kale into my green salads I discovered that it broke down just enough to be easily digestible and was even more delicious raw than cooked! Now I can enjoy this powerhouse green year round. Add garlic, avocado and lemon and you have prescription-strength medicine disguised as a delicious gourmet salad!
We have a solution (a genius solution if you ask me!): our green pina colada! Fresh, no sugar, and no additives — simply a delicious drink that will leave you hydrated and refreshed.
