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)






coconut butter

coconut water or filtered water

Vital Proteins 

Farmhouse Culture gut shot

Pain-free cycles, peaceful pregnancy, healthy clear skin and actually feeling warm were far off dreams for me just 3 years ago. I couldn’t even imagine having a glass of raw milk or enjoying a bowl of garden salsa (it made me bloated just thinking about it!). Worst of all, I was unsure if I’d ever get to start a family. From being passed out on the bathroom floor from the pain of rupturing ovarian cysts to a vibrant and healthy mom.
