Tips


How I make my smoothies to ensure I am fuelled after exercise and ready to start my day:


๐ŸŸฉ If I'm not having a meal or in a rush, I make sure my smoothie has everything I would eat for breakfast. This includes veggies, protein, fats and carbs.

๐ŸŸฉ I make sure my smoothie is a thick consistency. A watery juice or smoothie won't keep me satisfied and energised 'til lunch.

๐ŸŸฉ Sneak in my greens. I add in cruciferous vegetables, aka leafy greens including broccoli or spinach.

๐ŸŸฉ Protein. I use protein powder or supplements. If you enjoy full fat greek yoghurt this is another way to add in protein.

๐ŸŸฉ Flax seeds and chia seeds. I add these nutritious sources of Omega-3 and fibre for digestion.

๐ŸŸฉ Frozen fruit and vegetables. I use frozen spinach. When bananas are about to go off, I chop them in thin slices and freeze them for smoothies. This goes for all my fruits and veggies, including stalks from veggies I don't use in cooking...I save them for a smoothie!



Thick, creamy and delicious!
