Slow-Carb Green Smoothie: Protein Fiesta

This Slow-Carb Green Smoothie is high in protein, loaded with veggies, savory flavors, and is incredibly delicious to boot!

The Slow-Carb Diet, made popular in Tim Ferriss’ book The 4-Hour Body, has taken the world by storm. The idea behind the diet is pretty simple: eliminate all sugar, even from fruit, and focus on eating protein-rich foods and healthy “slow-carbs,” including tons of veggies, to help you lose weight.

Our slow-carb green smoothie, Protein Fiesta,  is a fantastic meal replacement. It’s 100% savory, no fruit allowed! We’ve used Mexican flavors (tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, spices, etc.) plus a good hit of plant-based protein using chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and our favorite protein powder from The Natural Citizen. And don’t worry, there are plenty of leafy greens in there too.
