The Root to a healthier spring in your step
Discover the root to a healthier spring in your step and some new food #inspo
During the winter period, many of us suffer from colds, flu and feeling blue but as the weather gets warmer and the evenings get lighter we approach the new season with a smile! Health and happiness go hand in hand and eating right is one way to support this.
Recently we’ve been working with health and fitness guru @wolfpackfitness13. Francesca provides her online followers with nutrition via her tailored nutritional plans. She’s been creating some tasty, antioxidant-rich dishes using Roots Collective Blends, packed with nutrition and goodness leading to a happier and healthier you.
“Eating clean doesn’t have to be a chore. It can be enjoyable, fun and your way of life. You can have your cake and eat it too.” – Francesca
Root Collective’s mission is to get real veggie goodness into everyone’s diet as easily and deliciously as possible, with minimum prep effort on your behalf and maximum mouth-watering taste! Our Blends boast an astonishing quarter of a kilo of vegetable content in every bottle, meaning each one delivers one of your five a day! Not only that, but they are completely free from dairy, gluten and sugar, leaving you refreshingly satisfied and full at less than 127 calories per 230g bottle.
We’re not a juice. We’re not a smoothie. We are bigger and better and the combinations are pretty much endless. Whether its breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert, here’s some examples showing you how versatile Roots Collective Blends are.
We’ve shared a few of Francesca’s fantastic recipes below, so make sure you’ve got the Blends you need to give them a whirl by ordering them right from our webstore! http://bit.ly/2dmy8FE
The first recipe from Francesca includes our Asian Sling Blend which packs a punch, boasting nutritious flavoursome ingredients including sunshine yellow peppers, vitamin-rich carrot, spinach, fragrant lemongrass and coriander. It contains Honey, coconut milk and avocado which are offset by a kick of red chilli and lime zest. A perfect combination of veggies, perfect for spicy oriental dishes!

This recipe is easy pea-sy to put together, why not get creative and throw in some of your favourite fruit or veg for added goodness? Francesca has opted for some colourful chopped courgette!
By adding a Roots Collective Blend to your breakfast regime, you’ll benefit from a sustained nutrition release into the blood stream throughout the day which will help to stabilise blood sugar levels and kill those pesky hunger pains.
