It’s Super Bowl Sunday and in celebration of our Philadelphia Eagles I am giving you a super green smoothie recipe that is loaded with healthy nutrients, good healthy fats and of course it’s the color green.
This Super Bowl Sunday is special to me for 2 reasons; one is that our Eagles are in it and even more important is that I married my wife 30 years ago on Super Bowl Sunday. Hopefully the Eagles can give us a Super Bowl victory as a 30th Wedding Anniversary gift.
This recipe will give you a very large smoothie that you can put in a travel mug and drink it all day for continuous energy. Or you can divide it between 2 servings. This recipe is low carb and has lots of good healthy fat. I like to make this early in the morning and take it with me to the office. I keep it in the refrigerator and drink it in between patients.
Here is the recipe:
- 2 Avocado
- 2 handful of sprouts
- 2 handfuls of greens
- 2 tbsp organic cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 can of coconut milk
- 6 ice cubes
- Optional stevia to taste
Combine all of the ingredients into a blender, blend and enjoy. The Smoothie will have a very thick and creamy consistency.
The avocados and full fat coconut milk have lots of good healthy fat that should help you eliminate your appetite. In another article on this blog that I posted some time ago I wrote that there is a section in the colon that is called the brake and that when good healthy fats pass over this section the body releases hormones that should help control your appetite for as much as 3 hours. That’s why this smoothie should be part of your diet program.
During the week when I am in the office seeing patients I have this smoothie for one or even two of my meals. In today’s world it seems that most of us do not have time to sit down and enjoy a good healthy meal. So smoothies go a long way in providing your body with all the vitamins and nutrients that it needs. Smoothies are not as enjoyable as sitting down and having a nice meal with your family but they do the job of giving your body what it needs nutritionally. If you are short on time to enjoy healthy meals and if you do not have enough time to prepare good healthy meals, smoothies like this should be part of your Nutrition program.
I hope you all enjoy this recipe. If you, a friend, family member or loved one needs help losing weight, I invite you to call us and schedule your free weight loss consultation. Call us now at 215-821-7336.
