SHAKE IT UP
Weekends and holidays can be a time of overindulgence. Whether its happy hour on Friday, date night on Saturday, Sunday morning brunch (or all three!), it can be tough to reestablish a healthy equilibrium. Perhaps you've been exempt from all three, but are generally feeling sluggish and your digestion is simply "off".
After starting the following day with a tall glass of lemon water or green tea, try this detoxifying mean green lean protein shake below to recover from bloat, fight ravenous hunger and fatigue. The best part is this vegan gluten-free recipe will help to balance hormones and improve your midday stamina.
Weekend Warrior Recovery Shake
1/2 to 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk
6 - 8 ounces of water, almond milk or oat milk
1 - 2 teaspoons of flax seed oil
1 teaspoon of L-glutamine powder, an amino acid to help muscle recovery and repair weak digestion (goodbye leaky gut!)
1 capsule of digestive enzymes, opened and mixed into shake, for symptoms of indigestion gas and bloating
1 teaspoon of chia seeds, high in nutrients and supports endurance energy throughout the day
1/4 teaspoon of grade B maple syrup or unrefined blackstrap molasses to combat stress and balance blood sugar
Blend (with or without ice) until smooth and enjoy!
