Enjoyed this refreshing green smoothie this morning outside even though it still does not quite feel like Spring has arrived here! I like to enjoy a good smoothie every once in a while. It’s so easy to toss some ingredients together in a blender. If you have smoothies frequently, make sure you use a variety of different vegetables and fruits to ensure you are getting a wide spectrum of nutrients.
This nutritious green smoothie is rich in fiber and dose of vitamins and minerals like Vitamin A, Vitamin K and Vitamin C. The healthy fats included in the smoothie help with the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins and balance blood sugar. I added a small amount of L-glutamine powder for some extra immune support. Glutamine is an important amino acid and one of the most important nutrients required for a healthy digestive tract. It has the ability to rebuild and maintain the structural integrity of the intestinal wall. I use it in combination with my probiotics to help support a healthy gut!
Cheers to warmer weather!
