High-Protein Diet: Spinach And Flaxseed Smoothie Recipe For Detox

This filling and wholesome smoothie will help keep untimely cravings at bay. Spinach is a rich source of fibre, which takes the longest to breakdown and digest, due to which they remain in your system all the while longer, preventing you from mindless bingeing. Additionally, spinach is also a rich source of potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and folate. Flaxseed, on the other hand, is enriched with protein. It is, in fact, one of the most potent sources of plant-based protein. Protein helps fill you up. They also help check cravings by regulating hunger hormones. Protein helps build strong muscle as well. Flaxseeds are also loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and a bunch of other vital minerals.
