Kick-start the day with a dose of nutrient-dense goodness that will add plenty of supportive vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre. Ginger helps support digestion, and passionfruit brightens the flavour and adds nutrients. In the US, I buy passionfruit in the frozen fruit section.
High fibre foods are an important part of a healthy digestive system. Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are high in fibre.
Anti-oxidant are phytonutrients that can help slow & prevent cellular damage from free radicals that can cause disease. Many plants contain anti-oxidants.
Recipes have ingredients that support our immune system and help our bodies to fight bacterial and viral infections. Foods high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals support our immune functions. Food and herbs with anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties help our bodies fight infection and support our immune response.

Super Green Smoothie
ADD all ingredients into a blender jug and blend until smooth. If it is too thick, add a little more water.
TASTE if you need more sweetness, add orange, apple or banana first. Blend and taste again, then add a little honey or maple if needed.
STORE any leftovers in the fridge for up to 24 hours and reblend before drinking.
*GREENS use – spinach, kale, arugula, romaine lettuce, parsley, chard, celery.
SWAP Passionfruit for citrus juice or fresh cranberries.
FROZEN FRUITS + BERRIES can be much cheaper and more sustainable with less packaging than fresh berries. Frozen fruits and berries retain all their nutrients as they are picked at optimum freshness and quickly frozen.
*THE SUPER SEED MIX is a great addition; it helps balance hormones and our bodies’ natural elimination + detoxification process. Blended smoothies are a great way to help aid our digestion & nutrient absorption process and balance our blood sugar.
*PROTEIN POWDER – Use what you like. I use a neutral flavoured plant protein with no sweeteners or fake sugars, flavours + “stuff”. Purchase powders from a trusted + sustainable source and always read the ingredients label.
