As many of you know I have been tweaking my diet, my supplement and my workouts lately. Two major goals, to inch my weight loss forward and to balance my hormones and in turn crush lingering inflammation. I am glad to report I am seeing good results with these changes. Whoot Whoot! While my eating habits remain squeaky clean they are more intentional. Keto most days with carb up meals in the evenings the days I work out. A big factor in my leap in healing, I attribute to the changes in my supplements. I’m focusing more on food based supplements that focus on nutrition, digestion and inflammation. I’ve added a video at the bottom of this post going through them in detail, there are also links to where you can get them. You’re welcome 🙂
Now, how about this smoothie? One of the intentional choices I made recently was omitting nuts from my diet. This along with the lack of starches or dairy in my diet posed some obstacles for this now super low carb diet of mine. Suprisingly it’s gone off without a hitch and I have felt satisfied. This smoothie has been a life saver. When I’m in a rush, when it’s too hot to cook. When I eat a meal but still feel hangry. This smoothie packs all the things a keto woman needs. Protien, 20 grams- check! Fat, 100 grams, check! Vegetables, 30 grams of fermented kale, check! Not to mention it’s icy and goes down like a chocolate milk shake… so yeah!
- 1 scoop fermented kale powder
- 2 scoops (22 grams) collagen peptides
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder (use carob powder for AIP)
- 1/2 cup full fat, canned, coconut milk
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- a few drops stevia
- 1/2 cup ice
- Combine all the ingredients in a high powered blender.
- Blend on high until smooth.
- Serve, enjoy!
