Smoothie – Beets & Blueberries

In regards to stewardship in biblical terms, we must also consider and become thoughtful in not only what we are eating on a regular basis, but how we are eating.

Research that has been conducted over a period of years, using human subjects are discovering a strong connection with our foods to our health and wellness, along with a strong correlation in conditions or diseases acquired as humans.

I am making myself smoothies for lunch.  This is my own homemade recipe based on the type of nutrients I feel my body requires, along with having an enjoyable and tasty light meal.

In case you were unaware, adding Chia seeds to smoothies helps to reduce one’s appetite as they expand in your stomach, making you feel fuller longer.

RECIPE

1/3 c beets

1 TBSP peanut butter

2 TBSP bee pollen

1 TBSP molasses

2 TBSP combined flax & chia seeds

Frozen blueberries – a handful

3 TBSP Organic Hemp Juvenate (Health Ranger’s)

Filtered water

BLEND ALL INGREDIENTS UNTIL THEY FORM A THICK SMOOTHIE AND ENJOY!!!

I mixed the above ingredients in my small ninja bullet and as this is rather thick, I am actually eating mine with a spoon, but so tasty, delicious and healthy.  You can feel free to add more water if you want to drink this beverage.  All the ingredients I use are 100% certified organic.  The beets and blueberries are ones I froze.

My husband and I pick chemical free blueberries every year, making a day leisure trip out of doing this as it is a lovely 45 minute drive into a rural area.  We take plenty of water, our lunch and taking time eating at one of the picnic tables the owner has placed under some trees, which also provide us shade from the often hot sun at this time of year, which is usually in July – August, the warmest and most humid season in Northeastern part of America where we live.

 

Delights from my kitchen to your home!  It has been my pleasure to once again share a bit of homemade goodness to your day!  As always, may we all become more thoughtful of our health and wellbeing as we only have one life, so let us live it wisely in choosing the types of foods we consume on a regular basis, making sure they are nutrient dense in providing our bodies with necessary sustenance.
