It might not even be that you're eating "unhealthfully," per se, but maybe something you are having regularly just ain't serving you!
While I don't have all the answers for you and your individual self (although if you'd like to work with me and schedule a free health consultation, click here!), I am offering a recipe for a green smoothie that might help kickstart things for you and turn your mood--and energy levels--around!
Green smoothies are such a wonderful way to get in healthy fruits and vegetables because they taste AMAZING! Or they can, at least. Rest assured, this one does!
I will mention that you should stick to this exact recipe when you're getting started--and maybe even if you're not! Why? There are SO many smoothie recipes out there with everything but the kitchen sink in them--banana, flax, chia, shredded coconut, almond mylk, spirulina, wheat grass, pea protein, blueberries, pineapple, parsley, cucumber, hemp hearts, avocado.
You get the idea.
The more ingredients you put into a smoothie, even if they're "healthy" ingredients, the more work your body is going to have to do to digest everything and this can be a lot of work for the body, even though it's essentially a liquid so K.I.S.S.
Oh! And make sure and "chew" your smoothie.
Banana-Berry Green Smoothie
(Add in this order)
1 c. filtered water
1 T. ground flax seed
2 kale leaves, stalks removed (similarly, you can use one cup of tightly packed spinach)
1 banana, cut in halves for easier blending
1/2 cup berries, heaping (here's where you can be creative and decide which berries to use!)
Small knob ginger
Blend everything and enjoy! Warning: this smoothie is tasty so you'll want to chug it down but please resist the urge to do so! You want to S-A-V-O-R it and chew ;)
With love, light and happiness,
