New Year’s Eve Fizz


The Skinny on Fat by Glen Matten


Spiced New Year’s Smoothie

Happy New Year! This smoothie has a comforting, spiced, indulgent flavour and is packed with nutritious ingredients. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory and helps against nausea and upset stomaches. The hemp seeds are a good source of protein, the sunflower seeds are a good source of magnesium and selenium and the dates have high polyphenol content to improve metabolic health.
