If you have a blender this is a great option. The benefit of this recipe is that it’s a meal in a cup that you can sip for breakfast or have as a snack. If you add the right ingredients it can be super nutritious and support you as you adapt to braces. Always make sure you include a protein (Example: Some nuts and seeds or a protein powder) and some fat (Example: avocado or coconut oil) as this will slow down the release of sugar and keep you fuller for longer. Try and make it so you have 80% vegetables and 20% fruit and add as many greens as possible, which will support your nervous system and keep you in a positive frame of mind. Also try and add some anti-inflammatory foods like ginger, or turmeric to help with any discomfort.
If you don’t have a blender, there are lots of places popping up that have fresh juices and smoothies on their menu.
