There is nothing I crave more in the summer than a cold smoothie bowl. Not only are they delicious and refreshing, but they can also be the key to good health. Smoothies are one of the ways I get my daily nutrients and greens I need in order to nourish my body. Here is what you will need:
1 Frozen Banana
1 Handful of Spinach
1 Spoonful of Navitas Organics Acai Powder
Coconut Water as needed
Superfoods aren’t just a hype, trust me. They truly do make a difference in the way you feel. If you’re skeptical, just give one a try and see how it goes. They transform any smoothie bowl into a small slice of heaven. Yes, this means they are just as tasty as they are good for you!
What do these superfoods do for your body? More like what don’t they do? Chia and hemp seeds help your body fight off aging by providing antioxidants. They also give your body energy to take on those long work days or strenuous workouts. In addition, hemp seeds strengthen your immune system and chia seeds ward off hunger. You may not expect a lot from these tiny seeds but they are indeed powerful.
I am currently addicted to goji berries. They are chewy and sweet, but also extremely good for you. I eat them on almost everything, but they are my favorite on top of smoothie bowls. Just like chia and hemp seeds, they are a great source of antioxidants. While they have an extensive amount of benefits, they are particularly good for eye and skin health. They also help regulate your cholesterol levels.
You may be questing the health benefits of the last superfood I mentioned, cacao nibs. Well, cacao is actually an ingredient added to chocolate before it is processed. Since it is not yet processed, it is actually very beneficial for your health. It is packed with magnesium and is proven to make you happier. And who doesn’t need a little extra happiness in their lives?
