Unicorn Toast for Weight Loss? – Saturday Strategy
Today, my friend and fellow health and wellness extraordinaire, Abbey Gibb – holistic nutritionist and founder of the lifestyle network, AbbeyGibb.tv – has an exciting trendy recipe that will give you exactly the nutrients you need in the morning! So excited to have her with us for another Saturday Strategy.
Magical Nutrient-Rich Unicorn Toast
We’ve all heard about avocado toast, but have you heard about UNICORN TOAST?
Not only are you going to love this toast because it’s absolutely gorgeous and nutrient-packed, but your kids are going to love it too. It’s an easy way to get in a lot of greens in the morning without needing to make a smoothie. Also, it doesn’t take much time at all!
Let’s talk about our ingredients!
Coconut Milk Yogurt
Coconuts are a miracle food packed with several B vitamins, fiber, iron, selenium, calcium and manganese. Because coconut yogurt is dairy free it is great for those who are intolerant to lactose or who prefer avoiding dairy in general.
Coconuts can help prevent obesity by speeding up the metabolism and suppressing appetite. They are a good source of energy with fewer calories than other fats. They also contain medium chain fatty acids (MCFA), which represent 1% of all fatty acids consumed and have no negative effects on cholesterol. In populations such as Sri Lanka and Polynesia, where coconuts are regularly consumed, there are very low to no rates of heart disease and serum cholesterol.
Adding yogurt to unicorn toast ensures that you are starting your day with beneficial probiotics. A healthy gut is the core to a healthy YOU.
Here’s where the greens come in! 11 superfoods in effective doses, designed to help you feel more energy, lose weight and support your body in fighting inflammation and illness. It’s the best tasting juice powder on the market and has even been through 3rd party clinical trials to test effectiveness.
To give you a sneak peek into the cool qualities of Organifi Green Juice… let me tell you about one of it’s finest ingredients: ashwagandha. This adaptogenic herb is a powerhouse in helping to balance your body’s hormones from stress. Ashwagandha is one of the FEW known natural substances that help our brain increase levels of Brain-Derived-Neuropathic-Factor! This means it is one of the only substances on the planet that supports our brain in creating new brain cells.
Let’s get some red on that unicorn! Organifi Red Juice is an 11 superfood blend formulated to boost metabolism, improve aging and taste incredible with only one gram of sugar! This blend is packed with nutrient dense berries and medicinal mushrooms that have been used for centuries to improve overall health and wellbeing.
Here’s your sneak peek into one of my favorite Organifi Red Juice ingredients: Reishi Mushrooms. They’re called “the king of mushrooms.” Ancient Japanese women brewed this into a tea for immortal youth. Modern studies support reishi mushrooms as lifespan increasers.
Immortal toast? Cool, I’ll take it.
Packed with antioxidants and anti-aging nutrients, berries are one of the best fruits to load up on because of their relatively low sugar and calorie content. They are also the perfect colorful topper to this unicorn toast recipe!
Blend berries with almond milk in a blender, make sure it is thick.
Spread berry mixture on top of bread.
Top with banana slices.
What other colors could we add to this toast? Try it out and let us know what ideas you come up with. Comment below!
Remember, we’re in this together.
