If you’re looking to up your fiber game, look no further than this fiber-packed Super Seed Fab 4 Smoothie! It’ll also give you a hefty, plant-based dose of protein and healthy fats to keep you satisfied for up to 6 hours! 

Nuts and seeds are a staple in my diet. As I mentioned, they provide protein, fat, and fiber so they make for a great addition to any meal. I also recommend them as a bridge snack and love nuts like pistachios that make you work a bit to get to the good part - that can slow you down and help keep your snacking in check. 

Whether your nut intake comes mostly from nut butters or you like a handful of nuts as a snack or to top your favorite dish or smoothie, keeping them stocked in the pantry is an excellent idea. For the most part they’re shelf stable (I recommend keeping shelled hemp hearts and ground flax in the freezer to prevent oxidation) and are easy to add to auto-ship to your favorite grocery delivery subscription. Thrive Market has become my go-to over the past year and I’m always making sure I have my staples stocked before my auto-ship comes. Aside from their excellent selection, great prices, convenient delivery service (alright, there’s a lot to love), I love the mission behind Thrive - you can learn more about that in my podcast episode with their CEO! Then head on over to Thrive to stock up on your favorite nuts, seeds, and the ingredients for this fiber-filled smoothie!
