3 Minute Superfood Smoothie Health Connections Superfood Leafy Green Mix

5th August 2017

These days life seems to more hectic than usual for me, hence my 3 minute green smoothie which nourishes me most mornings without too much fuss.

Just as the 3 minute smoothie I am keeping my post short & sweet.

I have recently fallen head over heels for Health Connections Superfood Green Leafy Powder, it is well priced and easy to get hold of from most supermarkets, but most importantly it has exceptionally nutrient dense ingredients which will add a significant punch to your daily nutrient consumption.

This smoothie isn’t ‘heavy’, and therefore just perfect to drink before your yoga, gym etc.

Here goes

  • 2 oranges – one juiced and the other one peeled and quartered
  • 1 banana
  • two heaped tablespoons of Health Connections Superfood Green Leafy Mix – buy it here from Faithful to Nature

Throw all the above in your nutri-bullet or blender and drink in the car if need be 😉  

Pssst……click here and visit our Faithful To Nature collaboration store on the Secret Supper Club page to purchase your very own Nutri Bullet at a fabulous little discount)

Until next time and always in dedication to your best health,

Breakfast just got better. superfood start to the day

1st July 2017

The Yoga Kitchen is crushing hard on Health-Connections new breakfast porridge and cereal range.

There is the delightful Chocolate Chia Oats. Its is simple and quick to prepare, but also delicious and perfect for winter when a warm breakfast is what we yearn for. The ingredients list is pretty perfect, with only 3 ingredients listed; Oats, Cacoa Nibs & Chia Seeds, all of the highest quality and crammed full of real nutrients. There is no sugar, and no preservatives or additives of any kind, this is clean eating of the highest order.

Then for those who are high on Low Carb food options, the Flax & Coconut Porridge is a match made in heaven. Its high in Omega 3 and fibre, two food stuffs that we can all do with more often. I really like the flavour and texture, it’s nutty and although it is a porridge it still has enough texture. To prepare one simply has to add either hot water, or milk/ or any milk substitute that you prefer. I also added the Flax & Coconut porridge to a banana & peanut butter smoothie with a pinch of cinnamon and some almond milk and it worked really well.

But my very best out of these three (difficult as it was) is the Sprouted Buckwheat Cereal, buckwheat has become one of my favourite things this year, it is high in protein and has a delicious flavour. This cereal works really well with a dash of almond or coconut/ rice milk and has sliced almonds and goji berries added into the mix. It has lots of crunch and keeps you going until lunch.

Now I guess there is no excuse not to have a super healthy start to the day.

In dedication to your best health,
