It’s a rainy, Blissfully Gl-Airy Free, Healthy and Eas-E Sunday! – Wendy Blanchard, M.S.

I recently bought a Nutri-Bullet, and made a healthy and eas-e protein shake with Arbonne Essentials nutrition products.  I have just become an Arbonne Independent Consultant, and I am so excited about their products!  I have not yet set up my Arbonne website, so if you would like more information, you can email me at wendyblanchard044@gmail.com, or call me at 845-500-0211.  If you would like to go directly to Arbonne to place an order, please use my Arbonne ID #14675800.  Arbonne  products are gluten and dairy free, with over 500 personal care, and nutritional products!

I made a protein shake using one scoop (you can use two scoops, as directed) of Arbonne Essentials chocolate protein shake mix, one stick pack of Arbonne Essentials digestion plus, one scoop of Arbonne Essentials daily fiber boost, 8oz. of almond milk, 1/2 cup almond butter, 1/2 cup organic raspberries, 4-6 organic cooked brussel sprouts, and a handful of organic red grapes.  You can use any fresh, or frozen organic fruits, and/or vegetables that you love!  Mix it up in the Nutri-Bullet, garnish with fruit, and enjoy for your good health!

Raspberries have anti-cancer benefits that have long been attributed to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.  In addition, new areas of research on raspberries involve management of obesity and type 2 diabetes.  Almond butter is good for the heart, lowers blood pressure, controls blood sugar, is rich in antioxidants, and helps with weight control!  Almond milk is great for digestion, especially if you are lactose intolerant, as it does not contain lactose.  It contributes to muscle strength, healing, strong bones, heart health, weight management, and so much more.  Brussel sprouts are an amazing source of  health benefits such as cholesterol lowering benefits, cancer protecting benefits, digestive and anti inflammatory support, etc.   It is a cruciferous vegetable that you eat on a regular basis if you want to receive the fantastic health benefits provided by the cruciferous vegetable family. At a minimum, include cruciferous vegetables as part of your diet 2-3 times per week, and make the serving size at least 1-1/2 cups.

Research continues on the vast health benefits of resveratrol, found in purple or red grapes. Here are some of the amazing healing benefits of resveratrol:

Red grapes have healing powers as well!  Studies at the University of Switzerland proved resveratrol’s brain-protecting ability. They found that resveratrol mopped up brain-damaging plaques and free radicals, which have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease.  It also helps with heart health, weight loss, brain power, skin protection from cancer, and more.

Hurry up, and make yourself a protein shake!  It is healthy, and eas-e!

I also baked my Almond Quinoa Cookies!  I love to bake, and cook on a cold, rainy day, and then share my Gl-Airy recipes with you!  Enjoy!
