During this stressful time, remember to take care of you and your family. Don’t skip your adjustments and have the family checked if they haven’t been already.  Also, don’t forget to be a great friend and recommend your friends to Queen City Health Center for holistic chiropractic care! They will thank you later…

This year, we are celebrating 12 days of Christmas toward a healthier 2016. Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be posting one healthful action step that you can take to get on track to a healthier new year. Commit to making one thoughtful health change over the next 12 days, and you’ll notice a difference in the way you feel.

Day 1: Try this incredible smoothie for breakfast or lunch or create your own and include one superfood.

Ginger Bread Cookie Smoothie – Healthy Holiday Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Full Fat Organic Coconut Milk [From the Can]
  • 1/4 cup Vanilla protein powder [2]
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ground ginger (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp Butter extract (or vanilla extract)
  • ½ Cup  Organic Spinach
  • 1/2 cup Water (Alter this according to desired consistency)
  • 5-10 Ice Cubes (depending on how thick you like it, use less for a thinner consistency)
  • 2-4 Stevia packets (or sweetener of choice to taste)

Directions: put all ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

This healthy holiday recipe tastes just like a ginger bread cookie, but, it’s much healthier for you. Some people worry about putting spinach into their breakfast smoothie, but I promise you won’t even taste it! But you will get all the health benefits, and there are a lot. Remember the old cartoon Popeye? He wasn’t lying. He was definitely onto something special when it came to eating spinach every day. This incredible superfood is loaded with protein, iron, vitamins and minerals, all of which are important for skin, hair, and bone health. This leafy green is one of the world’s healthiest foods, and adding it to a smoothie is a great way to consume it because the other ingredients will mask its taste (that is, if you don’t like spinach… me personally? I love it. But to each his own!) It’s also a great way to get your kids to eat their leafy greens without them knowing.

Day 2 will be posted tomorrow, so stay tuned!

Enjoy!
