If you drink our smoothies regularly, try adding in some of these foods as a way to increase your metabolism even further.
4 Metabolism-Boosting Super Foods For Your Healthy Mummy Smoothie
It has been suggested that calcium metabolises fat more efficiently. So aim to include calcium rich foods and drinks within your Healthy Mummy Smoothie.
If you use cow’s milk, then you will be increasing your calcium intake. If you choose to include plant based milks, aim to choose one which has 100mg of calcium per 100ml to benefit from this fat metabolising mineral. You could also add in a good quality yoghurt too.
Iron is important in many metabolic functions and if your body is low in iron, your metabolism will be slowed.
Thankfully, The Healthy Mummy Smoothie powder already containers 25 per cent of your iron needs in one serve, but you can also add some super green powder for an extra iron boost!
3. Green tea
Green tea contains a plant compound called EGCG which is thought to promote fat burning. Matcha green tea has become a popular cold and warm drink in the last few years.
Try brewing a green tea, allowing it to cool and then mixing it in with your smoothie along with a few pieces of fruit.
Wholegrains and high fibre foods take longer to break down and it has been suggested that eating whole foods as opposed to refined foods can significantly increase thermogenesis in the body and even burn 50 per cent more calories compared to when you consume refined foods.
Wholefoods such as wholegrains, rolled oats, chia seeds and LSA (linseed, almond meal and sunflower seed meal) are easy options to add to a Healthy Mummy Smoothieand increase your fibre and wholegrain and seed intake.
