Happy Friday! After an over indulgent week my body craves something healthy, but nourishing. I’ve started whipping up these Raspberry Avocado Cacao smoothies a few times a week and have noticed a huge difference in my digestion. I adapted the recipe from nutritionist and wellness expert Kelly LeVeque. Kelly suggests that your smoothie contain: 1 serving of Protein (I used vanilla protein powder here) + 1 serving of Fiber (I used chia seeds) + Greens (spinach) + 1/4 cup of Fructose (raspberries) + 2 tablespoons of Fat (avocado) + Liquid (almond milk) + Super Food (cacao.) I am constantly referencing Kelly’s site for guidance and ideas in addition to my Food Pinterest board which I update weekly! These chia chicken tenders are super easy to make and this brussels sprout salad is so light and refreshing for lunch. After my morning smoothie I like to get my heart rate up and I’ll either do FlyBarre, Flex Pilates, or go for a run (I try and do intervals on the treadmill.) I notice a major difference in my mood when I work out in the morning. I’m always looking to try something new so I would love to hear!
