#LunchBreakLIVE today featured Lateefa Smith of The Veggie Connection and Sahsha Campbell Garbutt of Life and Life and Light Wellness a.k.a “Plant-based Passionistas.” And we were there escaping the heat with these ladies while they showed us how to make an avocado BLT sandwich paired with a refreshing cherry/pineapple summer smoothie.
Check out their new product, Alkaline Aminos plant-based protein powder! The powder “provides all the essential aminos” that you need for all the muscles in your body. Try their 10-Day Cleanse to combat yeast, mucus and so much more. They emphasize the importance of healthy fat like that found in avocados and how it helps the brain function. And how cool and easy is the coconut bacon to make??
Pair their BLT with chips and their refreshing easy cherry/pineapple summer smoothie made with their signature Alkaline Aminos, and it’s packed with vitamin C! This smoothie is perfect for a post-workout chaser because it provides electrolytes as well. Thanks for sharing your amazing plant-based heavily-nutritive recipes ladies!
