14 Jun Breakfast Smoothie: Lemon and Poppy Seed
This post is written in partnership with New Chapter, Vermont-based maker of whole-food vitamins and supplements, however, all opinions are my own. I only work with and recommend companies whose products I love, and I’m so excited to share these with you!
I honestly didn’t think I could ever love a breakfast smoothie more than my Double Chocolate Chip, but this new Lemon and Poppy seed recipe from my 21 Day Beauty Nutrition Program might be a new winner!
Not only is it delicious, but it’s packed full of skin loving and collagen boosting beauty ingredients…
New Chapter Complete Organic Plant Protein+: my plant based and vegan clients often ask me how they can boost their skin’s natural collagen production, and one of my key recommendations is to make sure they are getting sufficient amounts of high quality plant based protein in their diets. This will provide the amino acids that are the building blocks of collagen. I love New Chapter’s Complete Organic Plant Protein+ as it contains 20g of complete protein that is easy to digest and absorb.
Lemon: provides a boost of Vitamin C that is an essential co-factor needs for the skin to form new collagen.
Plant Based Yoghurt: probiotic rich foods contain Lactobacillus, a strain of probiotic bacteria that produces superoxide dismutase. Superoxide dismutase is a powerful antioxidant that may prevent collagen breakdown by reducing the production of free radicals.
Poppy Seeds: poppy seeds are incredibly high in the minerals that are needed for collagen formation (and that are often low in our diets) such as zinc and copper.
