Protein is an extremely important nutrient that must be obtained in the diet daily. Protein in liquid form, as opposed to food, is much easier on the body and provides quick energy and nourishment. Food sources can take up to two hours to process, whereas a protein shake takes only 30 minutes. Try one of these delicious protein smoothie recipes, or create your own! The options are endless.
Sometimes as the seasons inevitably change, so do our stress levels. To combat these fluctuations in our emotional and hormonal balance we should try and take best care of what we can control: our diet. This little gem of a smoothie is not only tasty, but functional to boot, thanks to the fibre and protein packed chia seeds, the healthy fat of avocado, and the caramel-y smooth addition of the amazing maca root powder.
