Turmeric Kiwi Protein Smoothie | TheRoastedRoot.net

My mealtimes all revolve around protein. If you follow me on Instagram, I probably sound like a broken record, as I have mentioned many times in the past, I take a but first, protein approach to food. I make sure I get at least 20 grams of protein at every meal, and in the event that I snack between meals, I make sure my snacks are protein-centric as well.

In addition to making sure I get adequate protein throughout the day, I also tend to drink a smoothie for either breakfast or lunch. That may seem like a pretty light meal, but my smoothies are typically on the higher calorie end in the way of smoothies, and have a pretty decent macro profile.

I’ve found that having one liquid meal per day also helps with digestion – simply put, liquid is far easier for your body to process than solid food. In this sense, protein smoothies are currently a big deal in my life, as I usually drink them after I workout to replenish muscle glycogen and feed my broken down muscle fibers with protein.

Fig Beet Blueberry Smoothie - a lower-sugar banana-free smoothie recipe

Before I discovered my banana intolerance, I drank smoothies every day. Since going banana-free, I go in and out of smoothie kicks depending on the state of my gut health. If I have an IBS flare up, I gravitate toward replacing a meal or two with a smoothie or bone broth, as liquid is much easier on your digestive tract than solid food.

This fig beet blueberry smoothie is one of my recent happy-gut concoctions. It incorporates ingredients that are not only easy on your digestive system, but are welcomed with open arms. I use a fig, a few hunks of beet, blueberries, pineapple, coconut milk yogurt (probiotics), almond milk, ground cinnamon, raw pumpkin seeds (a natural anti-parasitic!) and some collagen peptides (awesome for repairing damaged gut lining!).
