You can practically hear your insides breathing a sigh of relief now that the season of indulgence is behind us. And to help start the new year off on the right foot, we recommend a protein shake from Vitality Natural Food Market. Their Little Miss Sunshine consists of vanilla protein, orange, mango (the king of fruits!), organic raw cashews, almond milk, turmeric, and cinnamon. The pulpy flesh of the orange packs a punch of fibre, the cashews amp up the protein and provide nutrients like copper and magnesium, turmeric contains curcumin (a compound known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties), and cinnamon is anti-microbial, can help control blood sugar, and has a warming effect on the body. Thick, creamy, and nourishing, this shake will give you sustained energy long after the sun goes down.
