Woman’s health is not a one-time appointment. We need to be acutely aware of our body and its needs on the daily basis. October, being a National Breast Cancer Awareness month, brings a point of awareness to the forefront.
When we are in the moment and are focusing on the needs of this moment, extraordinary things can happen.
The moment tells us exactly what we need to do: feed out body or feed our soul; go for a brisk walk or allow it do yoga; hydrate the body or breath in deeply.
Food is an amazing component of our daily lives, will you agree on that? Food can heal or slowly kill us. Learning about foods, checking the facts against the ra-ra “discoveries” is important.
What we know for sure is that whole foods, fresh, uncooked foods bring us the most benefits. The bodies crave these foods, which happen to be fruit and vegetables rich in phytonutrients, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Aside from fruits and vegetables, we gotta eat healthy fats and proteins, too.
Today, I’d like to offer you an easy healthy recipe for a Carrot Ginger Smoothie to honor our body’s need for antioxidants and probiotics.
Easy Smoothie Recipe With Veggies And Yogurt
Yogurt is loaded with probiotics, calcium and vitamin D. Probiotics have been linked to a decreased risk of cancer. Vitamin D combined with calcium protects against breast cancer, especially aggressive tumors. Other probiotic-rich foods include miso, tempeh, kefir, kimchi and sauerkraut. Other forms of dairy are also rich in calcium and vitamin D.
This delicious easy carrot ginger smoothie does not any bananas or milk. Yogurt is a fermented milk product, as a result it has a different structure changed by the fermentation bacteria which is great for our gut flora. Therefore, improving and keeping a check on a healthy gut flora is a must for our stronger immune system.
