My new Favorite shake! What do you do when you get a NutraBullet? Experiment!!! I am continually trying to find ways for my clients to incorporate Beets and Microgreens into their diet and I found a new combination. The flavors compliment each other and it’s pretty pink instead of green, which scares people for some reason. I don’t understand why people drink blue Gatorade or lime green Scooby snack mixers but take a double look at my green smoothie made from actual food.
Amaranth is a micro green high in vitamin C, E, K and provides immune support. These vitamins help improve eye health, and skin elasticity. Who doesn’t want that as we age?
Fennel or sometimes called Anise, contains quercitin. This aids in digestion and helps reduce inflammation and helps prevent cancer. Also excellent source of Vitamin C, which is a major antioxidant. Great source of fiber, folate, and potassium.
Cinnamon helps slow the glycemic response of sugar by 29% in the body which helps with stabilizing blood sugars. Especially great for diabetics.
Collagen After the age of 35, our bodies stop making collagen. Which means we need to stimulate growth and replenish daily where we can. If you are unwilling to make #bone broth, then a powdered collagen is needed daily. We need collagen for strong bones (forget the milk!) We need it for joint health, for inflammation reduction and muscle repair due to the high amino acids content.
Amino acids are the building blocks of immune system! Bet you thought I’d say muscles right? Yes, we need aminos to rebuild torn muscles but we need Aminos because they help the protein synthesis in our bodies. We need it for our Gut Health and brain Health. The more amino acids the more hormone regulation can occur in your body.
Think of a chain link fence, it takes a lot of “Chains” and you don’t get to pick where the body uses it first. Whatever system is lowest in your body the amino acids convert and build to complete what your body is asking it to do. IF you want to build muscle then start with GUT Health!
