After a long and very cold winter, we’ve gotten our first taste of warmer temps and preview of spring as we head into March....wait, MARCH? Where has the time gone? Well, I may not be able to slow time down, but I’m going to take full advantage of the warmer weather! One of the things I’ve found to really help my gut has been incorporating a greens supplement (this one is by far the best I’ve tried, it’s made with all organic grasses sourced right here in the US) and Glutamine to help heal my stomach.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, and it’s extremely helpful for those with digestive health issues because it provides the cells of the stomach and intestinal lining with the amino acids needed to properly repair itself, which can help reduce the incidence of leaky gut, supports the immune system, and aids in the repair of muscle as well! One of my favorite ways to get my Glutamine in is through smoothies, and with the warmer weather it felt right to whip up a healthy blended treat for breakfast!
2 cups spinach
1 cup ice
1 scoop Level-1 Vanilla Ice Cream protein
2 scoops Optigreens50
1-2 scoops Glutamine
1/4 cup oats
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until well combined and creamy. Enjoy!
