Have Your Chocolate and Beat the Bloat too!
Dr. Vincent Pedre’s Chocolate-Covered Almond Smoothie
I enjoyed being a featured guest recently on Dr. Oz’s show on how to beat the bloat and have a happy gut.
He shared this recipe on his blog, as I recommend drinking this smoothie daily to prevent next-day bloat.
The secret ingredient in this smoothie is hemp hearts, the shelled seeds of the hemp plant. They are an amazing superfood, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamins, and enzymes. You can find them at many health-food stores.
