I started making this smoothie this past winter after reading Kelly Leveque’s book Body Love. In this book, Kelly promotes eating according to the Fab 4 Method (protein, fat, fiber, and greens) in order to help turn off your hunger hormones and keep you feeling satiated for longer. Additionally, the book talks about a diet that is lower in sugar and carbs. I was inspired by this book to make a low sugar smoothie bowl that is full of protein and healthy fats in order to feel satisfied for long after consumption.
This is not turning into a keto or low carb blog. I believe different ways of eating work for different people. I want to share a variety of different recipes that support several different ways of eating. All of my recipes, however, have one common thing- they are all made with real food. I’m a real food enthusiast, meaning I believe in eating food in its most natural and unprocessed form. In my mind, eating real good is #1 and any other diet that you follow comes second.Continue reading “Low Sugar Blueberry Cacao Smoothie Bowl”

This Green Goddess Smoothie is by far my favorite summer smoothie! It was actually the first smoothie combo that I have ever made. It’s a fun green color and tastes super refreshing.

It may be best to avoid wheatgrass if you are gluten-free.Continue reading “Green Goddess Smoothie”
