Enter the smoothie. Easily one of my favourite go-to lunches, it is fast, easy, and nutritious. I was excited to try out a new product called Now for Mothers Healing Mix. This healing mix is a natural and organic blend of flax, almonds, pine nuts and other yummy ingredients. It's designed to keep you full over a sustained period of time, and also aid in lactation.
I added a scoop of the healing mix to my favourite smoothie and drank it for lunch. It tastes a bit like homemade granola, which I also love, but don't always have time to make. Two little ones were also dying to try it… well one in particular. Soren took a big drink and proclaimed it to be 'delicious!', so it passed the test in our household. As I was running around for the rest of the day I was surprised to see that several hours had passed, and I didn't feel hungry in the least. I am usually a pretty bad 'grazer', but I had no desire to pick at Soren's goldfish crackers or sneak in a bite of chocolate.
I'll be adding this healing mix to my grocery list, and it would also be a perfect gift for new mothers. I always try to give the gift of food to new moms (and dads!), and I'll definitely tuck a bag of this alongside some fresh muffins or a ready-to-eat dinner.
