Smoothies are one of my favorite meals because they are so quick, versatile and a perfect way to pack in a ton of high-quality nutrients in a small package. The thing you have to be careful with in most smoothies is SUGAR. Most contain so much fruit that while it's 'healthy' it's not going to help you burn fat and get / stay lean.
The key with smoothies is learning how to keep them high-nutrient and low-sugar. Today, I'm sharing one of my favorites with you!
For optimal energy levels and fat-burning, the first meal after you break your fast should be high in healthy plant-based fats, moderate in protein and low in net carbohydrates (total carbs - fiber = net carbs)
Your body also appreciates an easily digestible liquid meal. You don’t have to do a smoothie every morning but, your digestion will improve if you work them in a few days a week.
Here’s a great one to add into your week - for best consistency, its best to use a high powered blender. This is also a great way to work some superfood seeds into your day!
Try this one out and let me know how you like it!
I'm sharing one of my favorite low-sugar, vegan, no-cook lunch recipes later this week so, stay tuned for that!
