Today, I’ve got a really delicious alkaline smoothie recipe for you that supplies your body with a few powerful sources of the Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids that we talked about in my last post.I told you that flax seeds and chia seeds are excellent sources of all of the essential fatty acids. Add to that the MCT (medium chain triglycerides) in coconut oil, and you have one powerful smoothie.
And if you are worried about the fat – don’t be. These are the type of fats that BURN FAT!
Remember, there are fats that HEAL, and fats that KILL, and the more of these healthy fats you put into your body, the healthier you will be.
And if you are looking to lose a few pounds, you need healthy fat to make that happen – it’s a tradeoff!
But what I didn’t tell you in that article is that your dark greens like spinach also contain Omega 3 fatty acids.
I’ll bet you wouldn’t have guessed that, would you?
Although greens are not high in fat… spinach, arugula, and romaine do contain plant-based Omega 3s.
This smoothie is not only a nutritious way to start your day, it’s really tasty too.
The combination of banana and blueberries gives it a really good taste, and the healthy fats in the flax and coconut oil neutralize all of the acid in the sugar, also preventing an insulin spike in your blood.
So give it a try tomorrow morning and see how good it feels to start your day with a yummy alkaline smoothie!
