As a woman that suffers from Endometriosis, inflammation is something that I struggle with on a regular basis. This week I had my first flare up in months. That being said, because of my diet changes, I noticed that my pain levels were much more manageable than they’ve been in the past. This smoothie is my go to when I need antioxidants!

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

Ingredients

1-1.5 cup coconut milk
1 cup of spinach
1 cup of blueberries, blackberries and raspberries frozen
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 sliced banana fresh
1/4 cup fresh blueberries, blackberries and raspberries
1 tbsp coconut flakes
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp coconut flakes
Optional: 1/4 cup ice

Directions

1. Add the coconut milk, spinach, frozen berries, 1 tbsp of coconut flakes and 1 tbsp of chia seeds (optional: 1/4 cup ice) to a blender.
2. Blend till smooth. If the consistency is too thick add small amounts of coconut milk until desired texture is achieved.
3. Pour smoothie mix in bowl.
4. Top with sliced fresh banana, berries and 1 tsp of coconut flakes

This recipe serves 1.

Inspire Me, Gluten Free

My name is Lauren and I'm the creator of Inspire Me, Gluten Free! I'm here to help YOU get more comfortable in the kitchen! How? Great question; with the art of meal prepping! I'm not talking the boring prep that leaves you wanting more halfway into the week. I plan delicious versions of classic and unique gluten-free meals. Originally, I started meal prepping as a means to manage my budget and my waist line. What I didn't realize was just how much money I was saving monthly, because I was buying less and wasn't wasting money on unused or spoiled food. Choosing fresh ingredients helped me consistently lose 1-2 pounds a week. I had more time in the mornings/evenings, because I wasn't having to cook during the work week. All of these benefits made a world of difference in my life and they can do the same for YOU! Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist or financial advisor.
