Green Recovery Smoothie - Vital Proteins, simplholistic, gut shot, gut health

Smoothies are one of the best ways to give your digestive system a break. Whenever I’m feeling hungry but don’t want a big salad, chicken or a lot of avocado, I opt for a smoothie. Adding proteins, healthy fats and greens is a winning combo because they all work synergistically when it comes to absorption.

Having greens without fat isn’t a good plan because you won’t be able to get those vitamin A, D, E and K vitamins that are fat soluble. The protein and fat combo is killer if you’re trying to get a good smoothie that will actually sustain your energy. If you eat a blender full of carbs alone, you’ll likely get hungry 30 minutes later. I mean, I love to eat but I’m not a super fan of that.

What you’ll need (always organic)

spinach

cucumber

pineapple

lime

cilantro

coconut butter

coconut water or filtered water

Vital Proteins 

Farmhouse Culture gut shot

After two months of working with Ashlee, we got pregnant. She's kind, diligent and truly invested in my family and health. We tried for over a year to get pregnant with no luck after our first baby. I definitely recommend!

My back pain literally left, my puffy arms toned up and now I'm able to chase my baby boy around. HOLY CRAP, I was hesitant to implement the changes Ashlee always talked about on her Instagram stories (which led me to work 1:1 with her). Thank you Ashlee, from the bottom of my heart.
