How To

If you’re looking for a way to boost your energy levels for even better hiking adventures in 2015,  take our advice and embrace the smoothie. It’s the perfect on-the-go nourishment, to help you reach new heights.

The Nutribullet takes smoothie making into the 21st century and seems to have been the No.1 Christmas gift for health fanatics.

Instead of simply blending your smoothies, the Nutribullet uses high-powered blades to ‘extract’ nutrients from food, meaning that your smoothie is fully broken down and antioxidants are more easily absorbed into the bloodstream. It also makes for ideal post gym fuel, with travel-sized flasks that double as the blender itself.  Meaning, no more dreaded cleaning of juicers.  Now that’s worth celebrating!


The great benefit of smoothies is the all important fibre aspect.

The great benefit of smoothies is the all important fibre aspect. Blending breaks down the fibre, balancing blood sugars, creating slow release energy and helping to keep you feeling full. Adding energy boosting fruits such as bananas, really aid your workouts whilst the addition of nuts can boost your protein intake. The ultimate winning combo!

Smoothies also allow for the addition of superfoods such as wheatgrass, maca and spirulina powders, or perhaps chia or flax seeds, to help in cleansing the digestive system.

We recommend boosting your nutrient and fibre intake by switching up your breakfast routine, and swapping it for a smoothie. For a nutrient dense blend, try to make your smoothie vegetable based, and add superfood powders.
