Green with Envy Smoothie
Sometimes it’s hard to get your fruits and veggies each day, but this recipe helps by giving you three servings in the few short seconds it takes to blend them all together. It’s also a great way to use up your older bananas.
This is my to-go-smoothie.
I add Maca and ashwagandha powders, my two secret ingredients (see recipe) to balance my hormones.
I have a sweet tooth. If not controlled, it will control me through Candida overgrowth. I satisfy my sweet tooth and what I believe to be a craving by substituting the sugary kind of ingredients with nutrient dense ingredients that are not only delicious but also non inflammatory to my body.
This smoothie is very satiating. It gives sustaining energy for hours and it helps balance the blood sugar.
It is jam packed with nutritious ingredients!
Bananas for cardiovascular health (because of its potassium, sterol and fiber content), with low glycemic index and FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) for digestive benefits as it gets metabolized by bacteria in the lower intestines feeding the friendly bacteria. It is a great source of vitamins, minerals and low glycemic carbohydrate among endurance athletics.
Leafy greens have antioxidant, anti inflammatory, anti cancer properties. It supports the heart by lowering wasteful cholesterol. When we eat kale, fiber-related nutrients in this cruciferous vegetable bind together with some of the bile acids in the intestine in such a way that they simply stay inside the intestine and pass out of our body in a bowel movement, rather than getting absorbed along with the fat they have emulsified. When this happens, our liver needs to replace the lost bile acids by drawing upon our existing supply of cholesterol, and, as a result, our cholesterol level drops down. Kale and other leafy greens helps the body detoxify naturally and non invasively.
