I absolutely love smoothies! They are a quick and convenient way to boost your health at any time of the day. You can squeeze in a solid source of fruit, veggies, antioxidants, nutrients, etc in one punch. An added bonus is that by it all being blended in a smoothie, it makes it that much easier for our bodies to digest. Here's a smoothie recipe I like to use when I need an afternoon pick-me-up, an energy boost before (or after) the gym or just a delicious snack.
Slowly but surely, the days are getting longer which means spring is just around the corner! However, we are still in winter and the cold weather makes me crave my favorite warming foods and beverages. One of these is hot chocolate. Being plant-based, I enjoy making my own hot chocolate from scratch versus using a pre-packaged one. Not only does this allow you to have more control over the ingredients, but it’s cost effective (you may already have some of the basic ingredients at home), simple and pretty quick to make!
