Green Smoothie for Gut Health and Adrenal Support

3 Minutes

2 Servings

Introduction

👋 What is the first drink of your day?
Most of my clients start their day with coffee, and they suffer from fatigue and low energy… even though coffee ☕️ is not a direct cause for fatigue (sleep, diet, exercise, stress, all play a role) but it’s a vicious cycle because they feel that they need the caffeine for energy but in fact, it depletes them of minerals and stresses their adrenals even more.
Here are 2 easy consecutive drinks that you can try first thing in the morning for 2 weeks to cleanse, hydrate, and nourish you. Start your morning with either lukewarm water (with fresh lemon juice – preferable but optional).
Then follow with a green smoothie to give you energy (after a workout or after your lemon water).
You can then have your coffee later in the morning as you start working, or early afternoon after lunch. This way, you are not stressing your adrenals with caffeine first thing in the morning, and further dehydrating your system with the diuretic properties of coffee.
