nausea busting & energy boosting smoothie!


I recently posted on my Instagram page that smoothies have been my go-to this pregnancy. Although I've been a huge smoothie drinker for a while now it was surprisingly also pretty much the only healthy thing I could stomach during those first very sick few weeks. Thankfully, I'm feeling a lot more relief now and if you're currently dealing with the nausea/vomiting/exhaustion I hope it goes away soon!


This recipe has been my fave! The gojiberries really give me long-lasting energy. I can never taste the spinach in this thing and the berries add enough tartness that it helped a lot. For me, sour, ginger, cold and spicy food gave me relief- go figure! If this doesn't help with the all-day sickness, it is sure to help with the exhaustion part :)



Recipe:

handful of spinach
1 cup organic soy milk
1 cup water
1 tbsp goji berries
1 cup frozen triple berries (raspberry, blueberry & blackberry. I get our frozen bags at Costco but I've seen them at Target too!)
1 cup frozen strawberries
I add a little bit of maple syrup or a riped banana for added sweetness! The banana also helps fight heartburn and cramping!

Sending all my get well vibes and preggo or not this smoothie is yum!
