Hi ladies, it’s healthy mom month here at Take Ten with Jaime and Jacinda. THIS IS NOT A JOKE, I SWEAR. Since New Years Jacinda and I have been committed to supporting each other in our goals of healthy living and properly functioning bowels. So right off the bat, let me overshare that I have stomach issues. Always have, always will. The good news is I have my IBS under control as of late (and I’m losing weight!) with the help of a daily smoothie. Every morning Scarlet and I whip up a new smoothie, experimenting with vegetables, fruits, and various supplements in our concoctions. Bonus: She has tried more new foods in the past month than in all the previous 58 months of her life combined. Any parent knows that’s a HUGE PLUS. There really is no downside to giving daily smoothie-making a try.
I’ve given the basic run-down on setting yourself up for morning-smoothie-success for smoothie newbies over at Prudent Baby in my post How to Make A Smoothie (Or How I Keep My IBS in Check), and here I am sharing 20 of our favorite smoothie recipes. I post one recipe every morning (for the most part) on my social networks: to get my daily recipes follow Prudent Baby on Facebook, or @prudentjaime on Instagram, but today you are in luck because I’ve gathered the best smoothie recipes from our experiments right here on Take Ten. Which is perfect because it only takes about ten minutes to whip up a morning smoothie that will satisfy your hunger and make you feel like a good parent all at once. Yes, the smoothie could potentially replace therapy and become a family-bonding activity – it did for us Curtii at least.
