In case you haven’t heard, my #SayNOToCrunches Challenge is in the works, so I thought I’d reach out to my new friend and certified holistic nutrition coach, Kasey J. Smith, for a smoothie recipe to help us in our quest towards a flatter tummy. I’m super excited to try it because I’m a huge sucker for anything with ginger. So here’s some nutritious info and a delicious smoothie recipe from Kasey:
Smoothie’s are a great way to get more nutrients into your diet but did you know that not all smoothies are created equal? There are a lot of smoothies recipes out there that taste great but will leave you feeling hungry and tired just minutes after drinking them. Why? Because they contain too much sugar and not enough healthy fats and protein to keep you satisfied and energized. I explain in my free “7 Day Smoothie Challenge” ebook all about how to make the perfect, balanced smoothie that will keep your blood sugar level and your energy up. As a health and wellness coach, I am here to guide you towards making the right food choices in order to boost your metabolism and improve your digestion. It is time to smoothie it up – make em’ taste great without the sugar. I swear this will be life changing because once you are consuming low sugar smoothies, you will feel amazing! Plus, all we’re using here is real, whole food ingredients for our smoothies. No special products to buy – just healthy food you find at every grocery store!
I hope you enjoy my “Happy Belly Smoothie.” It’s packed with fiber, protein and healthy fats to keep you full and energized. It’s the perfect compliment to Sara Haley’s #SayNoToCrunches Challenge!
