Our health is one of our most valuable assets and we all strive to feed ourselves the nutrients our bodies need and to find a balance between life, work and self-care. The act of caring for oneself can be a healing experience in its own right, so I’m excited to share this delicious (and healthy) recipe for Murielle Banackissa’s Beet & Berry Ginger Smoothie Bowl! It’s chock-full of antioxidant-rich ingredients that deliver wholesome nutrients so we’re at our best. She also throws in a homemade granola recipe to add an additional layer of flavor!
