My favourites are Sage & Lemon Balm tea, restricting coffee, alcohol and nicotine goes well with a clean eating, healthy lifestyle.
I regularly use red beets in my diet – either chopped into salad or shredded in wraps and an essential ingredient to my daily veggie smoothies.

I’ve found smoothies the easiest way to get the 5 minimum and ideal 9 vegetables every day. I go for any dark green or red veg, then add a little fruit from thin skinned berries.

My research has led me towards raspberries, grapes and blueberries for fruits.

The vegetables I use are spinach, avocado, broccoli, kale and sweet bell peppers.

For nuts and seeds- to increase the Omega 3 content- I’ve been adding a mixture of linseed, sunflower seeds and goji berries. I quite like the crunch the seeds give.

I add a clean protein powder to one smoothie and have it as a snack, the other daily mix I have either after my high protein breakfast or mid morning.

Try it they’re delicious. Its too early to know if they help with menopause symptoms. But, I will let you know how I get on.

Now, I’m off to make sage and lemon balm tea!!

I hope you’ve been thinking more about your digestion this week!
This chart will give you an ideas of how much a portion of various vegetables actually looks like.
Adding veggies to your meals is an excellent way to improve your ‘transit time’ – that’s how long it takes your food to travel through your digestive system.
Vegetables are also low in calories and high in water content- double whammy!

My clients add as many vegetables to their meals as they like – having prepared veggies in the fridge and your lunch box can REALLY help you avoid craving for carbs and break your ‘sweet tooth’ urges too.
