    Nearly everyone has something they want to improve about their health, but not a ton of time to invest. With the chaos of modern living, smoothies are a great way to effortlessly boost your diet with nourishing ingredients.

    We love smoothies because they prep fast and are an easy, on-the-go option to curb cravings. Plus, you can harness the power of your smoothie to hack your health goals! Each smoothie below contains ingredients that help promote different health goals, from weight loss to balancing hormones to boosting gut health. Take your pick below and get blending.

    1. Weight Loss

    Losing weight can feel like a complex battle rooted in mathematical equations that try to solve the complication of enough time to work out, prep food, and take care of life as usual. Luckily, this Strawberry Avocado Protein Smoothie has you covered.

    • Coconut milk: loaded with healthy fats that keep you feeling full
    • Paleo protein powder: promotes balanced blood sugar and keeps cravings away
    • Avocado: healthy fats that are loaded with vitamins to support the gut

    Blood sugar issues are tricky, but this cozy smoothie helps provide balance. You don’t have to wait until autumn to eat it, either. If you’re diabetic or counting carbs, leave out the optional honey.

    • Pumpkin purée: loaded with fiber, which helps slow down carbohydrate digestion
    • Collagen: protein to promote blood sugar balance
    • Cinnamon: when regularly eaten, can help to promote balanced blood sugar and insulin

    4. Clears Skin

    Berry-Coconut-Chia-Smoothie.jpg

    The skin is a reflection of what’s going on inside of our bodies, so to promote healthy skin, we need to also have a healthy gut. Foods that worsen complexions include dairy, sugar, and processed foods. Luckily, this smoothie is packed with skin-friendly superfoods.

    • Coconut milk: nourishes the skin with healthy fats to keep it supple and smooth
    • Spinach: leafy greens are loaded with antioxidants that help eliminate toxins that contribute to acne and other skin problems

    Recipe: Berry Coconut Chia Smoothie

    5. Balances Hormones

    Ginger-Turmeric-Smoothie.jpg

    Hormones function within a delicate balance in the body and can get out of whack when inflammation or gut problems take over. This anti-inflammatory smoothie helps to support the liver, which metabolizes hormones and keeps them, especially estrogen, in check.

    • Pineapple: promotes healthy digestion and enzyme function
    • Ginger: anti-inflammatory and supports a healthy digestive process
    • Turmeric: supports natural detox and helps break down old hormones

    Recipe: Ginger Turmeric Smoothie

    6. Increases Fertility

    Paleo-Strawberry-and-Collagen-Smoothie.jpg

    Boosting fertility in preparation of having a baby is an exciting task. Filling your diet with fresh fruits and vegetables is a great way to ensure you have the nutrients you’ll need.

    • Coconut water: helps to balance hydration and support fertility
    • Spinach: rich in antioxidants and fiber
    • Collagen: supports gut health and prepares the body for pregnancy

    Recipe: Paleo Strawberry and Collagen Smoothie

    7. Boosts Thyroid Health

    Blackberry-Protein-Smoothie.jpg

    Eating for thyroid health means taking in lots of anti-inflammatory nutrients while making sure you get enough protein for balance. Remember: the thyroid needs a stable environment to produce hormones.

    • Coconut milk: healthy fats promote a balanced weight
    • Blackberries: rich in antioxidants to reduce inflammation
    • Paleo protein powder: promotes stable blood sugar for optimal hormone levels

    Recipe: Blackberry Protein Smoothie

    8. Boost Energy

    Matcha-Smoothie.jpg

    Matcha is a natural way to boost energy without using coffee. This smoothie pairs it with avocado for a creamy texture that will keep you feeling full and energized.

    • Coconut milk: healthy fats keep you feeling full
    • Avocado: filled with B vitamins and other nutrients to support energy
    • Matcha: an antioxidant-rich way to get a natural burst of energy

    Recipe: Matcha Smoothie

    9. Detoxes

    Beets-and-Berries-Smoothie.jpg

    Your body is constantly detoxing. However, the detox organs, especially the liver, need the right nutrients to get the job done properly. This smoothie is loaded with the right stuff.

    • Beets: nourish the liver and support natural detox phases
    • Avocado: filled with B vitamins and antioxidants that keep the detox organs protected from toxins
    • Strawberries: have fiber and antioxidants to promote healthy elimination

    Recipe: Beets and Berries Smoothie

    10. Improves Digestion

    Green-Smoothie.jpg

    Digestion is something we don’t notice unless it’s not working right! This greens smoothie is packed with enzyme-rich vegetables and fruits that support healthy digestion.

    • Ginger: eases digestive discomfort and relieves nausea
    • Lemon: naturally encourages the right amount of stomach acid
    • Flax seeds: fiber to promote proper elimination

    Recipe: Green Smoothie

    11. AIP-Friendly

    Paleo-AIP-Smoothie.jpg

    You don’t have to sacrifice convenience just because you’re on the AIP diet. This smoothie is filled with antioxidant goodness and is an easy-to-make drink.

    • Collagen: an easy protein source that also nourishes the gut
    • Coconut oil: healthy fat to support natural energy
    • Blueberries: antioxidants to fight inflammation

    Recipe: Paleo AIP Smoothie

    12. Balances Gut Health

    Tropical-Coconut-Smoothie.jpg

    Good gut health is a combination of healthy digestion, absorption, and elimination. This smoothie is packed with foods that support all three.

    • Pineapple: contains enzymes that support the proper breakdown of food
    • Banana: contains prebiotics to nourish the good gut bacteria

    Recipe: Tropical Coconut Smoothie

    13. Hydrates

    Triple-Threat-Avocado-Smoothie.jpg

    Staying hydrated goes well beyond just drinking water. While sports drinks provide electrolytes, they also come with a hefty dose of sugar and fake ingredients. This smoothie, on the other hand, provides natural electrolytes and nutrients that keep the body hydrated.

    • Coconut water: provides electrolytes
    • Mango: natural sugar to help the body use electrolytes
    • Avocado: healthy fats and nutrients to help the body maintain the right fluid balance

    Recipe: Avocado Smoothie

    • Kale: filled with vitamins, minerals and fiber to balance blood sugar and curb cravings
    • Lemon juice: high in vitamin C, supports weight loss and boosts digestion

    Recipe: Kale and Apple Smoothie

    15. Lowers Inflammation

    Lemon-Turmeric-Smoothie.jpg

    Whether you’re fighting inflammation from a chronic condition or want to avoid elevated levels, this smoothie is loaded with anti-inflammatory superfoods.

    • Lemon: rich in antioxidants
    • Turmeric: an anti-inflammatory superfood that reduces systemic problems
    • Collagen: nourishes a healthy gut and helps repair leaky gut issues

  • Asian Meatballs

    Post From https://nomnompaleo.com/post/39832097367/whole30-day-6-asian-meatballs

    Today’s Whole30®-friendly recipe is great for meal-prep: Asian Meatballs!

    Asian Meatballs by Michelle Tam / Nom Nom Paleo https://nomnompaleo.com

    This East-West fusion-inspired take on classic Sunday meatballs is a hit with our entire family. These savory balls of meat and minced vegetables are a cinch to prepare, and each bite is bursting with umami from the mushrooms, fish sauce, and tomato paste. (What can I say? This mommy knows umami.)

    Wanna watch a replay of me cooking these live from my home kitchen on Facebook (recorded on 9/5/18)?Here’s the video:

    Make a double batch, and you’ll have a fantastically versatile emergency protein that you can use throughout the week to accompany big salads, zoodles, or simple cauliflower “rice.” Or just pop a few meatballs into a container and bring ‘em to work as a handy snack.

    Before we get down to brass tacks, I should probably explain what “umami” is all about – and why I’m such a big fan of umami boosters like Paleo-friendly fish sauce, mushrooms, and tomatoes.

    Until the late 1800s, the conventional wisdom was that there were only four fundamental tastes: Sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. But then Auguste Escoffier came along. Escoffier, the author of Le Guide Culinaire and one of the greatest chefs of his time, began serving up dishes that tasted like nothing anyone had experienced before. His secret ingredient was a stock made of veal that he invented. Foods cooked with Escoffier’s veal stock tasted more robust, complex, and satisfying – but the veal stock itself wasn’t sweet, salty, sour, or bitter. Escoffier had actually stumbled upon the fifth taste: Umami.

    Asian Meatballs by Michelle Tam / Nom Nom Paleo https://nomnompaleo.com

    In Japanese, “umami” means “deliciousness,” and describes a robust, savory, mouth-filling quality to food. Why did Japan get the naming rights? Because although Escoffier was wowing rich European diners with his umami-packed dishes, no one could put their finger on this fifth taste until a chemist at the University of Tokyo named Kikunae Ikeda did some detective work. For generations, Japanese cooks had used a seaweed stock called dashi to imbue their food with a unique richness. Intrigued by this effect, Ikeda did some digging, and finally uncovered the source of this wonderful flavor: A chemical compound called glutamate and ribonucleotides like inosinate and guanylate.

    Asian Meatballs by Michelle Tam / Nom Nom Paleo https://nomnompaleo.com

    Glutamate occurs naturally in most savory foods, including animals and vegetables. But we don’t sense the wonderfully mouth-filling umami flavor until the organic matter starts to break down (through ripening, cooking, aging, or fermentation), and the glutamic acid is converted into the salt form, L-glutamate. When that happens, the umami kicks in. Mushrooms, asparagus, tomatoes, anchovies, and bacon are all rich in L-glutamate, making them crazy-good flavor enhancers. When something tastes insanely awesome in a way that’s not sweet, salty, sour, or bitter, you’re experiencing umami.

    Umami is the reason I’m such a huge fan of fish sauce (called nước mắm in Vietnamese). It’s a staple ingredient in a number of Southeast Asian cultures. Anchovies and salt are allowed to ferment in wooden barrels and then slowly pressed to produce the intense, savory liquid. Yes, it sounds a little gross, but I love fish sauce. Just a splash of the stuff can lend a deep umami quality to all your dishes – not just the Asian ones.

    Asian Meatballs by Michelle Tam / Nom Nom Paleo https://nomnompaleo.com

    Unfortunately, most of the fish sauce found in supermarkets and Asian grocery stores are full of additives: Hydrolyzed wheat protein, sugar, MSG, chemical preservatives – you name it. But many years ago, my super-chef sister pointed me in the direction of Red Boat Fish Sauce – made with just black anchovies and salt, and I immediately fell in love. I’ve been spreading the gospel of Red Boat Fish Sauce ever since, and it’s now become one of the most potent and popular flavor weapons in Paleo kitchens everywhere. It’s even Whole30 approved!

    My Asian Meatballs recipe is a great example of the power of umami.

    Makes 36 meatballs

    Ingredients:

    • 8 medium fresh shiitake mushrooms, minced (or 8 dried shiitake mushrooms, rehydrated)
    • 1 medium shallot, minced
    • ¾ cup minced sweet potato
    • 2 tablespoons minced cilantro
    • 2 pounds ground beef
    • 1½ tablespoons Paleo-friendly fish sauce
    • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • Magic Mushroom Powder or Diamond Crystal brand kosher salt
    • Freshly-ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons melted fat of choice (unnecessary if using parchment paper)

    Equipment:

    Here’s what you do:

    Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper or foil, and preheat the oven to 375°F. In the meantime, finely mince the mushrooms, shallot, sweet potato, and cilantro.

    Asian Meatballs by Michelle Tam / Nom Nom Paleo https://nomnompaleo.com

    In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, fish sauce, tomato paste, and the minced veggies and herbs. Sprinkle on Magic Mushroom Powder (or kosher salt) and pepper. If you’re unsure of how much seasoning to use, start with ½ teaspoon Magic Mushroom Powder (or kosher salt) and a few grinds of freshly ground black pepper.

    Asian Meatballs by Michelle Tam / Nom Nom Paleo https://nomnompaleo.com

    Thoroughly combine the ingredients but don’t overwork the meat.

    Asian Meatballs by Michelle Tam / Nom Nom Paleo https://nomnompaleo.com

    To check if your seasoning is correct, form and fry a mini patty. Chow it down and adjust the meatball mixture for additional salt and pepper if needed.

    Scoop out uniform balls with a medium disher (1½ tablespoons) and roll out three dozen meatballs. Each meatball should be about 1½ inches in diameter. (If you’re not using parchment paper, brush the foil or baking sheet with the melted fat before you place the meatballs on top.)

    Asian Meatballs by Michelle Tam / Nom Nom Paleo https://nomnompaleo.com

    Divide the meatballs onto the two lined baking sheets. Bake each tray of meatballs for 15 to 20 minutes, rotating the tray at the midpoint to ensure even cooking.

    Asian Meatballs by Michelle Tam / Nom Nom Paleo https://nomnompaleo.com

    Plate and serve immediately, or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. You can also freeze the cooked meatballs for up to 6 months. Simply freeze them in a single layer and then place the solid orbs in a freezer bag or sealed container.

    I’m not a regular imbiber of morning smoothies ’cause I’d rather eat something savory for breakfast, but sometimes an icy drink hits the spot after a workout or when it’s super hot. When the mood strikes, it’s easy for me to make this tropical smoothie because I almost always have the ingredients in my kitchen. Plus, drinking my Gold Glow Smoothie takes me back to Maui where I first tried something similar at one of my favorite health food spots—and that’s always a good thing.

    The Paleo View (TPV), Episode 315: The Scoop on Red Light and Infrared Therapy

      • Intro (0:00)
      • News and Views (0:40)
        • Stacy went to the lake (and the boats stayed on the roof!) and has finally learned to stand and paddle her board!
        • Sarah’s kids have been at school for almost a month and she now has a middle schooler!
        • Cole turned 13, so Stacy now has a teenager! School starts for her this week!
        • This week’s podcast is sponsored by Joov! If you want to check out Joov’s light therapy boxes, visit https://joovv.com/paleoview
        • Joovv is the main consumer product on the market that optimizes all the variables needed to hit that therapeutic window. Many other products out there use dosages and power outputs that are too low to achieve benefits, don’t use the right wavelengths, or don’t target large enough areas of our bodies (or better yet, target our entire body!).
        • New FDA-approved electrostatic-coated LEDs that deliver even more intensity and have passed rigorous 3rd-party testing.
        • Brand new modular design that lets you build a full-body Joovv system now—OR over time. The cool thing is that you can start with just one Joovv, and add on to it over time. Sort of like legos for light therapy!
        • Lastly, all Joovvs now come with a cool built-in Bluetooth control that’s compatible with their new app as well as multiple connected home devices like Alexa and Google Home. “Alexa, I want to Joovv for 10 minutes.”
        • Sarah loves hers and wants to build a whole room of them to stand in!
      • Question from Terri: “I am considering purchasing a Red Light Therapy device…I have read about the sweet spots and the NM needed to be beneficial. I don’t want to waste any money, so…..are they effective, or just a fad? I am most interested in skin rejuvenation, surface capillaries, joint and muscle effects. Thank You. Sarah, I value your advice. There are so many scam artists “out there”….hard to know what to believe!!!”
        • Sarah believes in red light therapy because it’s so well supported by scientific research!
        • Dates back to the 1960s, when we discovered that low-level laser light caused mouse hair to grow back more quickly and also stimulated wound healing
        • By the 1970s, low-level lasers on humans treated non-healing skin ulcers.
        • Research on this therapy has grown to include various skin benefits (including wrinkle reduction!), weight loss, oral health improvement, improved muscle recovery, better sleep quality, enhanced thyroid health, reduced joint pain and inflammation
        • Super well researched: over 3,000 published clinical studies on light therapy, including over 200 of them double-blinded, randomized, and placebo-controlled (the gold standard!).
        • How does it work? It excites chromophores in your mitochondria and stimulates the energy chemical ATP to form!
        • Induces transcription factors that play role in: protein synthesis, cytokine modulation, cell proliferation growth factors (muscle recovery, tissue repair, collagen formation), angiogenesis, tissue oxygenation, Endogenous antioxidant enzymes (SOD, iNOS), Liver regeneration, inflammatory mediators (pro and anti), CNS health (increases bone-derived neurotrophic factor)
        • Immune cells are strongly affected by red light therapy, Strongly anti-inflammatory, Improves wound healing, Reverses age-related immune dysfunction, Promotes “M1-related immunoregulation” (immune balancing), Antiviral immunity, Antitumor immunity (inhibits tumor growth in studies), Pathogeneisis of autoimmune disease
        • Effects on fibroblasts (collagen-forming cells), enhances production of basic fibroblast growth factor, increases the proliferation, maturity, and motility of fibroblasts (a type of cell that produces collagen and extracellular matrix). Resulting increase in collagen production responsible for much of the skin and joint benefits.
        • Red light also decreases joint pain! Studies have found it to be a good alternative to NSAIDs!
        • A study found that using red light therapy decreases the amount of thyroid medication needed
        • Red and near infrared light has been shown to boost collagen, smooth wrinkles, enhance tone, boost healing and skin regeneration, reducing inflammation and cellular necrosis, and even combating acne. It helps with vitiligo, psoriasis, scars, and more!
        • Existing research has shown that wavelengths of 635 nm can significantly reduce overall body circumference measurements of regions that have been spot-treated, including the waist, thighs, upper arms, and hips (and, studies are increasingly showing that these effects remain in place long-term!).
        • There is an ideal wavelength for red light therapy. The best absorption by our tissues peaks in the ranges of 660-670 nm and 830-850 nm
      • Currently, Joovv is the main consumer product on the market that optimizes all the variables needed to hit that therapeutic window. Many other products out there use dosages and power outputs that are too low to achieve benefits, don’t use the right wavelengths, or don’t target large enough areas of our bodies (or better yet, target our entire body!).
      • Get your questions in! We want to hear from you! And there’s no end to questions we can answer and topics we can address!
      • Engage on social media! That’s how we get feedback!
