TRUTH: I used to despise all smoothies/shakes…maybe because the only ones I had really encountered were those prepackaged weight loss shakes or gritty protein powders?
After becoming a mom, I realized that smoothies were an EASY way to get a dense dose of nutrition into my daily routine…nutrients that I would never be able to fit in with basic foods alone, even as I’m eating clean and having salads DAILY. And it literally takes me 2 minutes to blend up each morning!
I truly have seen a difference in my energy, cravings, anxiety, and metabolism just by consistently starting my day off with a superfood smoothie each day.
I prefer Vegan Shakeology because:
#1 It’s got 70+superfoods (not just protein!)
#2 It’s sustainably sourced and high quality
#3 It’s dairy & gluten free (important when you are looking to reduce inflammation & thyroid/autoimmune symptoms)
#4 It actually TASTES GOOD when you find your perfect blend/recipe!
Here’s on of my favorite ways to mix it up…who else is into smoothies for a quick healthy meal? Share in the comments below how you like to mix yours up!
