Bounce back after Easter

So how many Easter Eggs did you have? Be honest, I am not going to tell anyone! I am also not going to guilt you into feeling bad about overindulging, because really, there is no point. And there really is no such thing as a guilty pleasure. There is only pleasure. So I hope that no matter how many chocolate eggs you had, you thoroughly enjoyed every single bite.

I always teach my clients that if you happen to overindulge it’s a good idea to take it easy the next day – enter a smoothie. Yes, I am slightly obsessed with these blended cups of goodness. They are easy to digest, which means optimal assimilation of nutrients. They are also great for stabilising blood sugar, as long as you include a healthy fat.

Here are my 3 go to recipes for a quick bounce back after all these chocolate eggs.
You can either go on a mini smoothie detox and have all of them in one day or just replace one of your meals with a smoothie over the next three days.
