One of my biggest “healthy swap” recommendations for weight loss and overall nutrition is a nutrient-dense protein smoothie to replace a meal a day.
This Beginner Smoothie Recipe is a perfect place to start! It may take a little time to play around with the ingredients and consistency you prefer, but it’s worth the effort. I have so many clients that say they are “addicted” to their morning smoothie.
As one of the world’s healthiest foods, spinach is nutrient dense, loaded with antioxidants and powerful anti-inflammatory abilities, and it’s also low in calories.The benefits of it are endless, including everything from shining hair to protecting you from diabetes and cancer.
