Smoothies were the very first “health” food that I made when I decided to start my healing journey. I still remember it–not very tasty, chalky (from the type of whey protein I was using), too sweet, and well, it left me very uninspired to keep on keeping, lol. And this was long before blogs, instagram and even google so there wasn’t many places to turn for inspiration. Yep, that’s right. ha. However, I stuck with it, and making modifications until my morning smoothie became something my body not only craved, but that I looked forward to.
Fast forward 20 years, and my smoothie game is STRONG! I still do get stuck in a rut of the same green smoothie combo (almond milk, spinach, banana, frozen avocado and plant protein), but I do love to create and try new recipes, as much to inspire you as to nourish and inspire myself.
As a side note, I use plant-protein in all of my smoothies and over the years have come to love VegiDay the best. (I favour the vanilla or unflavoured). I find it blends well, gives a delicious taste and texture, doesn’t leave me gassy or bloated, all while providing 21 grams of protein per serving. I absolutely NEED protein in the morning and each meal and or snack. Without it, I just feel hungry and off. There are obviously so many ways to get protein into the diet, but in the morning, I love the versatility and ease in which VegiDay supports my day.
