Nutritional 2 pennies: Our liver is our body’s filtration system. It takes everything we put into our bodies—whether it is swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin and separates the nutrients that the body needs and prepares to dispose of metabolic waste, toxins and excess substances.

Keeping your liver healthy is critical to your overall health, including proper metabolism and function of your hormones. This smoothie is a great starting point to support your hard-working liver!!

 

 

Protein Smoothie 

 

Time: 2 minutes 

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 4 scoops of Vanilla Vega Protein Powder (This is the best, most cost-effect vegan protein powder I’ve found)

  • 1 avocado 

  • 200g of frozen berries

  • 400ml of water 

  • Pinch of sea salt 

 

Method: Place all of the ingredients in a blender, blitz until smooth and enjoy straight away

 

Nutritional-2-pennies: I choose to have vegan protein powder as whey protein has something called Insulin-like Growth-Factor in it, which can act in a similar way to insulin (fat storing) and also promotes excess androgens (male hormones) in women! Also, it is hard to find a good quality whey protein that is organic and therefore does not contain hormones (as many animals that are not organic are injected with hormones to keep alive, which means that eventually the consumer will eat these hormones – nice!)
