Here’s my fix: a green smoothie. It’s easy on the stomach, has the right 3:1 or 4:1 balance of carbs:protein. Add some avocado if you want some healthy fats and enjoy!
Basic Green Smoothie
In a blender, mix:
1 cup leafy greens (kale, lettuce, spinach, etc.)
1 cup fruit (pineapple, strawberries, banana, etc.)
1 scoop protein powder (I like hemp and pea in my smoothies)
2 cups water (more or less for desired consistency)
Enjoy! The veggies and fruit provide lots of antioxidants to help keep you healthy while the protein helps balance out your blood sugar until your next real meal.
