I made this smoothie for breakfast a couple times last week and I had to share it, talk about delicious! Move over Starbucks your a billion grams of sugar frappaccino doesn’t taste half as good as this cold, creamy, deliciousness I can whip up in my own kitchen in 10 minutes!
Quick note on salt. Salt, fat and sugar are the most common “evil” nutrients (yes I just called them nutrients) people I consult with avoid. However, all three are required ad some level for the body to function normally.
Salt is necessary requirement, especially for hydration and adrenal health. When we are eating a predominately clean diet with little processed foods we may lack salt. Many people I work with suffer from adrenal fatigue and they crave salt, suffer from low energy, foggy thinking and low blood pressure (among other symptoms.) In fact, improving my adrenal health has been somewhat of a ongoing project for myself. This smoothie contains a lot of sodium, but I don’t worry about it because to me it was the perfect way to replete after a hard workout or overnight fast. In fact, I often drink salty keto lemonade (sea salt, lemon juice, and water) at night, but that’s a topic for another day!
However, that being said if you have high blood pressure or concerns of high blood pressure, salt will exacerbate that problem and should be avoided while the root cause of inflammation is addressed.
Let me know if you try it! Have a fantastic Friday!
