Yep, another green smoothie. Kale is to blame but in a good way! I guess since I can’t really control the colors of these smoothies, I decided to mix up the container I use to drink it out of. My favorite vessel is a typical mason jar but today I used a glass milk bottle. It really doesn’t matter what you drink it out of, it is delicious! Today’s smoothie has a power house of nutrients. It is a bit higher in calories but my goal in these smoothies is to get nutrients and healthy fats.
If you are Bee-gan (vegan that doesn’t consume bee products) you can skip it.
Pollen is an excellent free radical scavenger that can protect against the negative effects of pollution and exposure to radiation.
The wide range of nutrients found in bee pollen work together, providing a synergistic impact that seems to improve their overall absorption by the body and enable better utilization of other nutrients present in the diet. Pollen corrects imbalances caused by deficient nutrition, and provides particular benefits when the body is challenged during times of increased stress. You can read more on a quick post that I did (here).
Blending fruits and vegetables together breaks down the cells of plants and improves digestibility. BUT even with that, be sure to chew your smoothies. The chewing process starts the release of the saliva in your mouth. The mixture of saliva and your food is where digestion begins. This is a very healthy habit to get into. It may feel strange at first but soon it will become an automatic response.
