Fitbodies Recipe of the Month
This month in the Fitbodies kitchen I am ALL about smoothies.
I'm currently trying a new recipe daily and loving some of the ideas I am getting. Cooking is an experiment, as is nutritional planning to an extent. We must diversify and try new things. Put our taste buds to the test!
This Carrot Cake Smoothie was everything I was hoping for and more!
Most of us know that carrots contain the highest amounts of beta-carotene, the precursor for Vitamin A. Vitamin A is necessary for a well-moisturized and shiny head of hair, but most important is in promoting a healthy scalp—which is needed for the growth of healthy hair.
Another amazing benefit is that natural healers have long believed that carrots possess strong cleansing properties that are extremely effective in cleansing our livers—removing toxins from the blood and thus, aiding in transporting nutrients and nourishing hair, and all around our bodies.
If that wasn’t enough to get you started on this smoothie, carrots also contain calcium, potassium, iron, fiber, vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, K, and biotin—amazing, anti-aging and beautifying properties. Let’s carrot- up and make this awesome smoothie!!
And as always, if you can't calculate your macros email me and I'll help.
