Green smoothies can be both delicious AND hormone healthy!
Every time you make a smoothie is an opportunity to nourish your hormones with essential nutrients so that you can THRIVE!
To make any smoothie hormone-healthy you have to make sure you are ticking these 3 essential nutrient boxes:
1. Protein - helps to stablize blood sugar and keep you satiated
2. Fibre - feeds good gut bacteria + promotes healthy elimination of excess hormones & toxins
3. Healthy fat - required to MAKE hormones & fight inflammation
1 small handful of Cilantro (cilantro helps detox heavy metals from the body)
1 large handful of spinach (spinach helps remove excess hormones)
1 tsp Luna's Gold PMS blend (Luna's Gold reduces inflammation & boost moods)
1 tbsp Earth Seeds (Earth Seeds gives you extra nutrients to fight PMS)
1 scoop protein powder (My go-to is the plant based protein from PranaON)
1/4 avocado (healthy fats to make healthy hormones)
1 small handful of frozen blueberries (anti-oxidant goodness to fight free radicals)
2 Brazil nuts (Rich in selenium for thyroid function)
1/2 cup water
A small handful of ice cubes
Add all into a blend & turn on high until smoothie and creamy consistency!
Add your favourite toppings and enjoy as a mid-morning or afternoon hormone-balancing snack throughout the month to help prevent PMS.
