Glow Chef has written a book about Power Smoothies! Some time ago I announced an e-book with special recipes for “recent moms”. In fact, these smoothies are complete, healthy meals for anyone, not just mothers …
Their particular feature is that they are high protein and the combinations of ingredients have special goals: high energy, antioxidant, glowing skin, and a regular gut … Basically, all those health and beauty concerns that have us wanting to eat better.
Smoothies, Can It Get Any Easier?
Glow Chef’s goal is to help you on a daily basis, showing how easy it is to eat in a balanced way.
This e-book has 5 new smoothie recipes created with busy days’ breakfast in mind when you have to be out the door in minutes, you can’t afford to sit and read the newspaper while chewing …
While I was at it, I also shared a couple ideas for healthy snacking, for eating at home, in the office, wherever you are.
The best way to ensure that I eat a good breakfast every day is to prepare it well in advance, so I suggest you do the same: prepare freezing bags with the ingredients for each smoothie. They are all different, so you don’t think that healthy eating is boring.
I’ll leave you with a sample: an original pear recipe, included in the Power Smoothies E-book.
I use pears of the “rocha” variety, a typical Portuguese pear that, according to experts, has a higher antioxidant component compared to other varieties of pear. But you can use your favorite pears.
This combination of pears and mandarin orange is fresh and different from the usual banana based smoothie recipes. I think you’ll like it!
The night before: prepare a cup of skim milk, with…
- 1 tablespoon oats
- 6 blanched almonds
- 1 tablespoon flaxseed
Cover and place in refrigerator.
- 2 ripe pears (‘rocha’ or other variety), skinless and pitted
- 1 mandarin orange peeled and pitted
- 1 cup of spinach leaves
- 1 tablespoon hemp protein
- 1 teaspoon of brewer’s yeast (optional)
Place the milk preparation in the blender and blend for 30 seconds.
Add the remaining ingredients and blend until the smoothie is nice and creamy.
