For those allergic or sensitive to nuts--or if you just want to try something new--here’s a great smoothie recipe for you to give a morning boost. Sunflower seed butter is high in healthy fats, thyroid supportive selenium, and trace minerals like magnesium that support all of the bodies functions. It’s a great alternative to nut butters and can be found in health food stores - be sure to read the label and make sure you get one that is unsweetened. Combine that with our new upgraded Cleanse Shake, antioxidant packed blueberries and phytonutrient rich spinach and you’ve got yourself a super nutritious breakfast or snack!
