Healthy eating is hard.
Walk into any supermarket and you’ll see the disparity between the the junk food on display alongside healthy and nutritious food.
Not only does availability come into it but cost too. It’s much cheaper to buy unhealthy food than it is to buy fresh organic produce.
Eating nutrient dense foods are key to living a long and healthy life. And the more they’re in their natural state (i.e. uncooked) the better.
Smoothies can help you get those all-important daily servings of healthy veg, fats, vitamins and antioxidants in one full swoop.
Below is a video of how I put together my own nutrient dense smoothie or ‘power smoothie’ as I call it. The recipe is:
- Mixed berries
- Hydrolysed collagen
- Water / ice
I try to consume one of these each day usually as a meal replacement since there are around 700 calories in one of these.
More importantly they’re full of Vitamins A, B, C and K. And also potassium, folate, fibre, iron, calcium as well as a bunch of disease fighting antioxidants.
That’s why I call it a power smoothie.
