Chocolate & Ginger Smoothie

By Kezia Hall

Why is it at this time of year that everyone seems to go a little mad when it comes to new regimes and diets, exercise plans and other fads? I know its March but still the endless promotion of ‘New Year, New You’ is still going strong! I am not interested in getting a ‘New Me’ thank you very much!

But before I go off on a rant let me introduce myself. I am Kezia Hall, based in beautiful Scotland, UK and run Super Naturally Healthy where I equip and empower women with delicious solutions for increased health, healing and JOY.

I came to run this business this through my own sordid relationship with sugar, my body, journeying through eating disorders, alongside massive health problems (try having chronic diarrhoea for about 6 years - NICE!) all whilst my LOVING food. For me eating healthy had to be healing, had to give me results but also have to be fun, joyful and delicious.

And, as I can imagine that you are one creative soul with jam-packed days and a tricky schedule to manage, here is one speedy and easy tip I want to share with you that will make a massive different to your health:

Start small and just add one thing to your day. 

Don’t hop onto any regime or plaster yourself in a dietary label, just on a daily basis do one thing to value your body and your soul. One of the simplest and most practical ways we can do this is by giving yourself some food that will help you get healthy from the inside out. And this delicious recipe is a great example of that. 

It's a beautiful blend of chocolate, ginger and sneakily, vitamin-rich goodness from spinach, that is going to naturally energise you through your day.

I love green smoothies (or brown smoothies in this case!) not because they are some miracle fixbut because they are 100% natural, speedy and super delicious. They take 2 minutes to make and even if the rest of my day is filled with coffee and cake I know that I have given my body the nutrients it needs to THRIVE.

So wipe the dust off your bender, invest just 2 minutes a day in valuing your gorgeous body and get your green smoothie groove on!!
