My recipe for today’s totally awesome Ginger Pear Green Smoothie.
One of my readers who is doing the Body Fuel System wrote me last night because she has a big exam coming up, and she asked me what snacks she should take to stay alert!
Good question! This recipe was one of my suggestions – I said bring this in a shaker bottle with some ice. Some nuts for a little extra fat to fuel your brain, and you’ve got some good energy for focus.
Additionally, adding a little nutmeg to your smoothies is a great strategy, as one of the benefits of nutmeg is improved focus and concentration.
