Nutritionist and Stress Coach
As a holistic nutritionist specializing in reducing stress on our bodies on all levels, one of my most common phrases is “make each meal as nutrient dense as possible!” When your body is nourished with the essential vitamins and minerals it needs to function optimally, you take away the stress of compensation that arises when you are deficient in something.
Drinking a smoothie is a great delivery method for a densely nutritious meal, with the removal of any heavy digestive stress on your body. When making a smoothie, don’t forget your healthy fats. A diet rich in healthy fats is vital for brain health, blood sugar regulation, skin health and much more!
Below is a delicious example for you:
Brain Boosting Nut Butter & Jelly Smoothie
· 2 cups milk of your choice
· ½ a banana
· 1 tbsp chia seeds
· 1 cup berries of your choice
· 2 tbsp walnuts or nut butter of your choice
Blend and enjoy often!
