Smoothies are such a nutritiously convenient way to fuel the body. Many don’t have time to create a nutritious meal for their whole family all the time. For busy working mothers, sporting teenagers, exhausted and stressed clients I suggest a 30-day nutrition program. The program includes superfood smoothies twice a day. They are packed with all the essential nutrients the body requires for vitality. They are a delicious, nutritionally complete meal replacement. Wholefoods I sometimes add to our smoothies include.
IsaLean Shake contains active enzymes that break down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats to maximize absorption of key nutrients. Packed with quality protein, energy-fuelling carbohydrates, good fats and essential vitamins and minerals you need to maintain good health. 21 vitamins and minerals to nourish the body while you enjoy an active lifestyle. This is a perfectly balanced low-glycaemic meal replacement. However, sometimes we add the following nutritious superfoods. For my clients who have weight loss goals, I suggest not adding anything to the IsaLean Shake.
I always have a stash of fresh and frozen berries. They have a very low GL and are jam-packed full of antioxidants. Berries give you that sweet hit without spiking your blood sugar levels.
Green Leafy Vegetables
Green vegetables are high in chlorophyll, which increases the oxygen in your blood. More oxygen equals more energy, better endurance, and faster recovery.
They help maintain energy during sport and help recovery. Chia seeds are a great source of protein and antioxidants, which help reduce inflammation. They also replenish minerals that are lost through sweat like magnesium, potassium, and calcium. They bulk up the consistency of the smoothie so I pack a spoon.
Live Natural Yoghurt
Packed with live bacteria. It is easier to digest than milk. Live yogurt, where the bacteria remains intact, can be particularly helpful in promoting a healthy digestive system. Calcium found in yogurt is easier for the body to absorb than that found in milk.
Raw cacao is high in essential nutrients including; Chromium which regulates blood sugar, detoxifies the liver and influences cleansing the blood. Phenethylamine helps increase focus, alertness and lifts the mood. Magnesium relaxes muscles, helps digestion, builds strong bones, relaxes heart, and cardiovascular system.
Especially relevant are almonds, brazil, and cashew nuts are always in my kitchen. They are a good source of protein, healthy fats, essential minerals, namely calcium and magnesium.
