Why We Love Green SmoothiesJune 12, 2018
Adrenal What? Fatigue.July 18, 2018
Okay babes! It's Day 1 of our 10 Day Green Smoothie Challenge. This challenge is to help cleanse our insides and give us lots of nutrition. It's to keep us mindful about what we put into our bodies. It's not designed for weight loss. I am not a nutritionist. I am a nutrition enthusiast. This is just a challenge to include more fruit and veg into our diets. To get us glowing from the inside out. Because, we are what we eat!
With that in mind, today I thought I would share with you one of my go to smoothies for a healthy, clean and clear glow from the Inside out! It is packed with goodness like pears which are rich in fibre to help sweep those toxins away from and they are gentle on our digestive systems.
This glowing goodness also contains pineapple which is particularly great as a natural anti-inflammatory. It's rich in Vitamin C which helps our immune systems as well as helping with the production of collagen which we know helps rejuvenate our skin. It also has mint which is gentle and relieving on our tired tummy’s. The coconut water and flesh is the perfect hydrator along with good, natural, healthy fats … so what are you waiting for? Get your glow on from the inside out!
