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.

Be sure to check out our video below!
