Wondering why this green smoothie is called “Stress Less”?  Not sure how drinking a delicious smoothie may help you to chill?  

Let’s take a look:

  • Potassium in bananas and avocados helps to reduce blood pressure.
  • Soybeans and dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and chard contain magnesium, which can help to combat headaches & fatigue (which can either be direct result of stress, or can make stress worse).
  • The Omega-3 fatty acid contained in flax seeds can actually help to keep stress hormone levels low.
  • Healthy doses of Vitamin C will keep your immune system strong and allow you to cope better with stress.  This smoothies packs a Vitamin C punch with dark leafy greens and strawberries.
This all adds up to a delicious way to chill!
