Smoothies can be an easy way to get lots of great vitamins and minerals as well as a macro-balanced meal if they include protein, carbohydrate, and fat in each mix. However, smoothies can be hard on the digestive system if consumed unintentionally or too quickly. So, be sure to drink smoothies in a slow, relaxed state moving the smoothie mixture around in your mouth before swallowing to promote enzyme activity and increase ease of digestion.
Choose combinations from the following lists for some healthy, nutritious smoothie options 😊
Protein (Use 2-4 different sources of protein)
Collagen powders (Perfect Brand hydrolyzed collagen is our favorite—Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen Unflavored – Veritas Medical )
Nuts and Nut Butters
