When you’re feeling like a rich, creamy, and satisfying smoothie that’s not too heavy, this nutrient-packed blend might be exactly what you’re looking for.
As some of you may have seen in Joe’s recent posts to Facebook and Instagram, he had the opportunity to do some hiking in Zion National Park this past weekend. The trails were long, some very steep, and the 7 hour hiking days required some fuel for the pack. This granola was made to be easy for transport, to take on the plane, and then to load up in the backpack for the hike. Did we mention it’s delicious? Get the recipe.
Smoothies are refreshing, a great way to pack in lots of nutrients, and extremely portable so you can take them with you on the go. This smoothie is loaded with superfoods including chia seeds, goji berries, spinach and blueberries that are all rich sources of phytonutrients (plant-based nutrients), fiber, and antioxidants. It’s also a good source of healthy fat and protein thanks to the hemp, chia, and flaxseeds. Try this tasty spring smoothie for breakfast, as an addition to a light lunch, or as a snack.
