Today I want to share another recipe for a PCOS proof smoothie. This smoothie is filled with vegatables and fruits. This is a easy way to get enough vegatables per day, you can drink it on the go. I love these smoothies because how easy they are to make and to drink. I make them in 5 minutes, put them in my smoothie cup and take it with me to work. I love eating salads instead of bread as lunch but they take a lot of time. You’ll have to cut everything and eating a salad takes more time to eat. I have been working as a nurse in home care for 4 years now and I am always looking for healthy food on the go which can be consumed easily between patients during the car ride.
The smoothie of today has 8 ingredients, one of them is Maca powder. This powder is beneficial for multiple reasons. It should give you more energy and fertility. It has an influince on the part of the brain that controls your hormones. It can bring balance to your hormonal levels when consumed. A second effect is on the libido. It should increase it ánd make the quality of the sperm higher. The powder has a sweet vanilla taste, I like it a lot in smoothies. You should start on a low dosis! So a small teaspoon per day is more than enough.
But now! The recipe of today:
5 cubes of spinach (frozen, will give it a fresh/cold taste)
1 tsp coconut
1 tsp maca powder
optional: 1 tbsp linseed
Put everything together in the blender and let it spin for about 1 minute. The taste is sweet and fresh. The cucumber makes it really fresh and light but the mango and maca makes it a little sweet. I love putting avocado in a smoothie. This gives the smoothie a soft and creamy tast and texture. Good luck trying it out and let me know if you like it!
In the summer of 2014 was the first time I tried Bootea. It was recommended by my sister. Not only was promised that I should loose weight but: having a better skin condition, more energy and would my digestive system get better a better condition. I was sold because all of these things were problems I was having.
First of all the package is so cute and appealing. But besides that the tast is amazing. Of course this is only my opinion but I drink a lot of different kinds of tea. The day tea is a grean tea with a complex taste of different herbs. The night tea has a peppermint flavour to it. The smell is awful at first but the taste is fresh and smooth. There’s a diet plan on the site of Bootea which is low in chemicals and at the end of the teatox most of the toxins should be removed out of your body.
The results I experienced on my weight have been different but my weight was lower every time I started it. The most I lost was 6.3 kg which is about 14 pounds in 28 days. Also I experienced having more energy and feeling less bloated as usual. I must say I have a history of bad digestion and normally had to use laxatives. The bootea night tea has a laxative effect! This effect caused that I didn’t have to use normal (chemical) laxative any longer.
I don’t recommend Bootea to everyone but if you’re trying to loose weight and eat healthier you should try it out for yourself. Every body is different and will react to it differently. For me it’s my favourite and perfect after a period of eating unhealthy.
A few weeks ago I blogged about the DCI I bought online. It should help with a lot of the negative effects of PCOS. The past two weeks were very hectic for me. I finished my thesis and started my last semester of nursing school. This last semester will be a internship at a home care company. One of the effects of DCI should be having more energy. And wow, even though the full effect will be after 8 weeks, I already experienced so much! I’ve got more energy, my skin is way better. I have had difficulties with acne on my back which is almost gone right now. I will continue till the bottle is empty and will decide if I’ll buy a new pack then.
Besides the more energy and better skin condition I haven’t noticed anything about hair, weight or my cyclus but I think it’s to early to say something about this. So I will update about that part later!
If you’re thinking about buying this supplement to have more energy I definitely recommend it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comment section.
