Why these are my favorites?
Our bodies need to maintain a certain balance between free radicals and antioxidants. When this equilibrium is disrupted, it can lead to oxidative stress. Dietary intake of antioxidants is essential for optimal health, but more is not always better.
A variety of food antioxidants are Berries, green tea, and dark chocolate. (source: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/antioxidants-explained#antioxidant-types )
I prefer to get mine with an antioxidant smoothie:
1 cup of frozen mixed berries (trader joes)
2 tablespoons greek yogurt / 1/2 cup of almond or oatmilk
1 large banana
1 small piece of raw ginger
1/4 tsp of turmeric
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 pitcher of water
II. Fiber & Nutrition
Green smoothies are rich in vitamins and minerals. Including leafy greens in your smoothie can provide health benefits such as digestive health, bone strength, and immunity support. Which are also high in antioxidants. Although, I haven't found the right balance for the ultimate green smoothie. I did find this recipe on how to mix one up.
