The stress that comes with the belly pain, bloating, leaky gut and discomfort of digestive issues can literally send a person right into a “meh” existence. I AM VERY familiar with all of this, as I have struggled with SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth).
A few years ago, I was placed on antibiotics for 9 months that destroyed my gut ecosystem and left me with a digestive mess. As I am on the journey to improve my health and my digestive brain, I am sharing a smoothie with a secret ingredient that will heal and soothe your gut with each slurp: Aloe Vera.
I have to admit that prior to me finding this recipe, I would have NEVER thought to sprinkle cayenne pepper into my fruit smoothie… but I am so happy that I did!
This smoothie is naturally vegan, gluten-free and EASY!!! It only takes a few minutes to make. Cayenne, and its many health benefits, is the secret ingredient that instantly livens up this green smoothie.
School is OUT and snacking is IN…and at times, it feels like it’s constantly! Snacking isn’t terrible – It’s actually good!
Your kids are running, jumping, playing, and burning more in the summer, more than any other time of year and if they’re anything like my kids, they’re literally growing right before your eyes!
They need more to fuel them during this time, so snacking is actually good…the issue, if any, is WHAT they are snacking on.
Sweet tastes better…THERE, I said what everyone was thinking!
Is it just me or is it safe to say this has been the most stressful summer of the century? Finding “calm” now is more important than ever...but sometimes, juggling family with work can literally seem to endure the entire 24 – making it hard to squeeze in the “ME TIME” we all need to relieve and reset our mind and body of the weight that stress can bring.
Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures...so, let’s get blending and let the bliss begin with this Lavender and Relaxation Smoothie!
As a working mother of three, I’ve quickly learned that smoothies are the perfect way for me (and my kids) to get a daily dose of health-benefiting, immune-boosting nutrients, all while on-the-go. They hit all my requirements: yummy, easy, quick, and healthy!
This week’s smoothie is packed with nutrient-rich and delicious ingredients like turmeric. With just one sip, you’ll quickly realize “youth” never tasted so good! “Youth”?
