Well....I was having a little metabolic issue after traveling from Taiwan to the states. On top of time changes, sleeping schedule, weather, etc, the most suspicious cause lies on the diet. My diet consists of a minimum of 5 types of vegetables daily plus a glass of freshly made juice from my dad (Thank you!). However, that amount of fiber intake was reduced drastically during the first few days of my arrival.
I've got to do something to save my ever bloating tummy. So here is it, I took whatever that was available in the kitchen combined with my dad's healthy juice idea, and the tummy savior was born.
Energy boost juice with mixed berries, banana, apple, carrot, walnut, milk, and a splash of honey -
Ingredients (for 2 to 3 full cups)?
1 handful of strawberries
2 tablespoons of blueberries
1 ripe banana
1/2 stick of carrot
3 to 4 walnuts
Some 2% reduced fat milk
Peel the apple and carrot. Chop the banana, peeled apple, peeled carrot into bite sizes and toss into the blender. Remove the stems from strawberries, cut in half and add to the blender. Add in the blueberries too.
Toss in 2 to 3 walnuts along with some honey to sweeten and smooth out the acidity -
Pour in the milk till all the ingredients are submerge underneath. You can substitute the milk with soy milk or even water. The amount of liquid used depending on how thick you would like the juice to be. I prefer mine condensed and unstrained, that's how I got all the nutrients in one glass. Blend till smooth, should take less than one minute.
My metabolism and ...well..."bathroom" schedule turned normal again only one day after having this juice. And yes, hello my happy tummy, good to see you couple sizes down again!
