Bellies Love Smoothies! Instead of assaulting your belly with refined sugar foods, make smoothies for energy! Here are three favorite smoothie recipes: a fruity one, a delicious veggie combo that gives you big servings of Vitamin B greens, and a pumpkin pie smoothie which is also delicious served warm as a creamy soup on chilly nights. Smoothies are wonderful for those of us who can’t stomach solid food in the morning, but want to turbo-charge their metabolism, their mind and their mood. They’re also great for mid-afternoon pick-me-ups and late-night blood-sugar boosters. You’ll sleep better if you have something easy to digest and nutritious as your late-evening, guilt-free snack!

Happy-Gut Reminder: If you’re stressed, skip a meal and drink smoothies for energy instead.
