Celery Leaf + Collagen Smoothie
We were recently interviewed by Well TO Do, a web-based go-to on everything fitness, nutrition and wellness in T.O. We talked about the inspiration behind the brand, visions of the future, and our own wellness rituals, which inspired us to share a little of that ritual with you.
One of our favourite wellness practices starts at breakfast, with a giant blend of *so many things* including fruits, veg, proteins and powders.
It seems like everyone around us has a cold right now, and we're desperate for an immunity-boost. This week, our CSA basket included Celery Leaf, a green that we've never cooked with, and the perfect opportunity to put a new spin on the classic "green smoothie."
Lemon juice, ginger, and vitamin C rich grapes and mango are bright-flavoured immunity boosters. Avocado, hemp seeds, and collagen powder are the proteins and healthy fats that make this smoothie satisfying and satiating.
