My Go-to Smoothie For Preventing Micronutrient Deficiency

It’s a well documented fact that the majority of Americans do not get enough micronutrients from the foods they eat. Things like vitamin C, zinc, magnesium and other nutrients are not found in many of the typical foods we eat.

This causes a myriad of subtle health problems from easy bruising to trouble recovering from exercise.  And while its always a good idea to take a multivitamin obtaining important nutrients from food should also be a priority.

This smoothie recipe is my go to smoothie to make sure I get plenty of high quality nutrients from my food.  It’s easy to make and tastes great plus you get a good balance of healthy fats and carbohydrates.
