I am always looking for easy ways to get more Essential Fatty acids into my diet. This delicious smoothie is one of them, it is an easy breakfast smoothie or great for an afternoon ‘pick me up’.
If unsure whether you’re getting enough EFA in your diet, here are a number of signs that are linked to a deficiency – excessive thirst, frequent urination, rough dry or scaly skin, dry, dull or lifeless hair. Dandruff and soft or brittle nails. Raised bumps on the skin.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) perform many functions. Regulate oxygen use, electron transportation and energy production (these are the most important processes occurring in the cells). Help to form red blood pigments (haemoglobin). Support the production of secretions of digestive enzymes..

I always blend a bit extra so I have another glassful for later on.
