How to Start a Smoothie Kick
With swimsuit season right around the corner, I always find myself wishing I had started my smoothie kick earlier! Replacing one meal a day with a smoothie can be a great way to lose weight, or just add more nutrients to your diet. For me, smoothies are the best way to get fiber, collagen, and tons of super-foods into one delicious package. Before getting into a regular routine with making smoothies you’ll need a few essentials to ensure your smoothie isn’t just filled with sugar-rich fruits.
Smoothie Starter Kit
- High-quality blender
- Supplements and Superfoods
- Vital Proteins
- Hemp Seed
- Trust Your Gut.
- Tumeric Powder – anti-inflammatory properties
- Bee Pollen
- Philosophie Superfood Powders and Honey
- Eco-Friendly Glassware and Straws
- Instead of buying plastic straws, consider cutting down on waste buying these glass ones. I think they are much easier to drink out of anyways!
Southern Source Side Note:
Bee pollen is said to contain more protein for its weight than any animal-based food, and for its weight has more amino acids than meat or eggs.
