Happy Monday! If the last few months have caused you to put on some weight in quarantine, there’s no time like the present to start making healthier choices. I love smoothies and I’m always playing around with different recipes that minimize sugar and calories and maximize nutrition and taste.
The key is to keep it simple and incorporate whole and natural foods from the key food groups rather than including processed foods that are likely high in artifical ingredients and are loaded with sugar.
Here’s one of my new favorites that I made this morning. Combine the following ingredients:
- 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup of organic blueberries
- 1 cup of organic baby spinach
- 1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon of dark chocolate chips
And then mix it all together in your blender…and that’s it!
This smoothie has about 300 calories and helps you start off your day with fresh fruit, vegetables, protein, complex carbohydrates, calcium, fiber, iron, vitamins D, K, A, B, E and C and lots of antioxidants.
Let’s start the week of strong and healthy you guys…we can all do it!
