Nutrition Corner: Eating slower in order to improve digestion
Many of us eat on the go, eat while driving, and eat in 2 minutes flat if that is all the time we have available. Unfortunately, no matter how healthy we eat, if our body is not digesting properly, we fail to benefit from these healthy food choices. In order to digest properly, we must slow down, and only eat when we are calm, rather than stressed. This smoothie bowl allows you to sit down and consume your smoothie a little slower than you probably would normally. Practice mindful eating by taking the time to eat breakfast apart from watching TV, talking on the phone, or rushing to get to work.
- 2 frozen bananas
- ½ avocado
- 2 cups spinach
- 6 tablespoons hemp seeds
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons flax seeds or flaxmeal
- 1 1/2 cups almond milk
- Dash fine sea salt
- 2-4 drops stevia to taste (optional)
- Toppings (per serving): 1 tablespoon dry roasted nuts of choice, 1 teaspoon cacao nibs, sprinkle of cinnamon
- Add all ingredients except toppings to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Add more almond milk if needed to facilitate blending, however, try not to thin out this mixture too much. You want it to be a thick smoothie you can eat with a spoon. Pour mixture into 2 serving bowls and add toppings.
