When people want to feel good about how the are eating, the first thing they do is start subtracting things from their diet. They give up dairy, gluten, sugar, or whatever else.
While that might make you feel good for the first few days, ultimately it’s not creating real change since it’s usually temporary. So instead of getting rid of things, consider what you could add to your diet. That could be new foods, like fruits and vegetables, or it could be playing with the quantities of what you’re eating. It could mean adding more plant-based fats or adding more gluten-free grains like quinoa and oats.
Because real health isn’t about restriction. It’s about abundance, feeling empowered eating a variety of foods, eating a full range of colors, and nourishing yourself.
But have you heard the new thing about smoothies? You can put them in BOWLS. Yes, bowls. Why, you ask?
Because you can make them into even more of a complete meal with the simple addition of a few blend-in ingredients and toppings. Count me in!
My ideal green smoothie bowl has:
Super bright green color (achieved with lighter-colored berries and lots of greens)
Nut butter or protein powder for extra protein
Avocado for healthy fats and richnessFlaxseed meal for fiber
And natural sweetness from frozen bananas
