      A delicious green smoothie is an integral part of my wellness plan. As most of us are full of empty calories and nutrient poor, a green goddess smoothie is quick and versatile and adds that extra nutrient boost most of us are craving.

      I’m not an advocate of replacing food with smoothies but they make a great snack or brekkie on the run. I used to skip breakfast but now I just whip up a quick smoothie to take with me instead.

      INGREDIENTS:

      Small handful of kale and/or spinach

      1 inch of cucumber

      1 broccoli floret

      Handful of frozen blueberries (organic if possible)

      1 frozen banana

      Half an avocado

      Tablespoon of coconut oil

      Fill to the line with Almond milk/coconut water or filtered water

      Optional boosters: 1 spoon of maca powder – an adaptogen that contains natural fatty acids found in food and B6 which makes it a superfood for mood. Maca is a great addition for people struggling with depression and/or anxiety. It has also been known to boost energy, fertility and even menopause symptoms.

      Another great booster is spirulina powder – The incredibly powerful blue/green powder is a natural “algae” (cyanbacteria) that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins and other nutrients. It’s health benefits are endless from helping to detoxify heavy metals, boosting energy and helping to alleviate sinus issues.

      Having a green smoothie helps me to stay on track with my healthy eating. You need to find what works for you but for me personally its hard to get a nice variety of veg into my diet each day. The boosters I add depend on how I feel. If I’m stressed I add spirulina as I find it helps and if I’m feeling down I reach for the maca. When you start to live more mindfully you can tune into your food and feed your mood, sleep and overall health and wellbeing in a more connected and conscious way.
