Everyone knows that oranges are a great source of Vitamin C, but did you know that pineapple actually has more Vitamin C per serving? Pineapple also contains bromelain, a digestive enzyme that helps reduce bloating. Goji berries are full of Vitamin C, antioxidants, and carotenoids, which have been linked to an increased lifespan. And let’s not forget about the good old yam, which is full of complex carbohydrates (the best kind for increased energy) and soluble dietary fiber. When you mix in a serving of hemp seed, which is full of protein, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, you’ve got a meal replacement smoothie that can get you through any kind of workout life throws at you.
