🥑Blend 1/2 unsweetened coconut shreds with 1 cup of water. Next, add 1/2 avocado, a handful of spinach, 1 banana, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 2-4 dates (Depending on desired sweetness), and 1 scoop @furtherfood Marine collagen peptides. Top with @traderjoeslist ancient grain & super seed blend, bee pollen, and unsweetened coconut chips.
🐝Local bee pollen is another natural way I gear up for allergy season. I like switching it up with local wild flower honey (Local to you is so key!) because consuming small amounts of both foods weeks before the season starts is a process called desensitization, which means you’re introducing small amounts of the allergen to your body signaling the immune system to produce antibodies that will help eliminate the allergic reaction. However, I continue to eat both foods all year long to upkeep the results. In all honesty, since I have focused a bit more on incorporating both foods into my diet, it has worked for me these past couple of years, but I’ve also read that others may be allergic to bee pollen so be aware that would be a serious reaction! Aside from acting like an antihistamine, bee pollen also contains rutin↠an antioxidant that helps with the production of vitamin C and collagen.
