B-Vitamins are one of the prime nutrients needed to create energy and the Pick Me Up smoothie is not only a good source of B vitamins but, contains over 100% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C and 50% of the daily recommended intake of magnesium. These important nutrients help to boost immune function as well as support nervous system health.
Orange – helping to support immune function, if you feel like you are always run-down/unwell, vitamin C is a really important nutrient to boost immune health. It’s good to be aware that immune health starts in the gut!
Baby Spinach – leafy greens are an amazing source of antioxidants, vitamin C and minerals, in particular, magnesium, the nutrient essential for supporting nervous system health.
Peanut Butter – full of healthy monounsaturated fats and a good source of energising B-vitamins. I always recommend buying nut butter that is 100% nuts.
