Through this struggle I have been getting my smoothie on every few days when my stomach says “YES.” I am using the following ingredients in my smoothies these days with Origain protein drink as the main ingredient to add a protein bunch.
- Origain protein prepaid drink
- Handful of fresh blueberries
- 1/2 bananna
- two handful of spinach packed tight
Although the struggle is real I know I need to create a loving and nurturing relationship with food again in my life and I am working on it as I type this blog. I know it’s important to healing and that in every way it shapes how we go about our day.
In addition to the smoothie, my goal is to try a new recipe each week and try something new from the ever-growing stash of cookbooks I have around the house. This week was a really yummy detox soup that I found within my Oh She Glows cookbook. It included some awesome spices that make the flavor really great and it tasted yummy. I substituted out vegetable broth with a healthy dose of bone broth. Bone broth is known for some amazing health benefits. Give it a try next time you are making a soup that calls for a broth base. It’s known for its healing powers. Even if you just sip it straight from a nice warm cup like a tea it’s great! I have been drinking warm cups of bone broth a couple times a day. It’s actually not a bad little sipping snack during these long, cold winter days in Maryland. Full recipe here for the Oh She Glows - Detox Soup
