Folate for Mental Health:
This month our O2 Living recipe's will feature fruits and veggies dense in vitamins and nutrients crucial to our mental health. This week our spinach, kale and berry smoothie is dense in folate (folic acid and vitamin B9). Studies have shown the increased intake of folate is associated with a lower risk of depression! Leafy green vegetables like spinach and kale, fruits, nuts, beans and whole grains have high amounts of folate, or folic acid.
1 cup organic spinach
12 ounces Living Juice, Green Vitality
1/2 organic banana, frozen if you like!
1/2 cup of organic strawberries
Combine spinach, banana, and strawberries in blender. Add in Living Juice's Green Vitality. Blend and enjoy! If you prefer a colder smoothie, you can freeze the banana or add ice when you blend!
