Post-Thanksgiving Slim Smoothie, Written by: Kayte Corrigan

Still feeling full from last night? Regret everything? Need nourishment? Don’t reach for the leftovers. It’s recommended to stay away from gluten, salty and processed foods the day after a big meal. First and foremost, hydrate! A lot of times when we think we are hungry when we might just be thirsty. Keep a glass of water with lemon by your side all day. Second, start your day off right with a smoothie packed with everything you need to fuel your day’s activities.

Slim Smoothie:

  •  1 cup berries (your choice)
  •  1 cup leafy greens (spinach, kale etc)
  • 2-3 sprigs of fresh parsley (aids digestion)
  • 4oz Coconut water
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder (Sun Warrior Protein is 100% raw vegan)
  • Ice cubes to chill then blend to perfection!

Getting a cup of greens in between 9:30 and 11am will keep your energy even all day long. Don’t worry, you can’t even taste the greens in this smoothie. They are like undercover nutrients. Treat your body right and try to fit a workout in. Whether you’re heading to class, taking a jog, going for a hike or enjoying a walk, this smoothie will keep you satisfied for proper recovery from rich food consumed the day before. No need to decrease your food intake, just take in the right kind!
