Heart Health


The recipe is rich in monounsaturated fats from the olive oil and avocado. These fats are known to help reduce levels of 'bad' LDL cholesterol and increase 'good' HDL cholesterol, contributing to heart health. The recipe also contains a good amount of fiber from the mixed greens, strawberries, blackberries, and avocado, which can help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.


Digestive Health


The high fiber content in this recipe, particularly from the mixed greens, strawberries, blackberries, and avocado, aids in maintaining a healthy digestive system. Fiber adds bulk to the diet, helping prevent constipation and promoting regular bowel movements. Kombucha, a fermented beverage, also contributes to gut health by providing probiotics, beneficial bacteria that support a healthy gut microbiome.


Immune System


This recipe is packed with vitamin C from the strawberries and blackberries, which is essential for a healthy immune system. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the body against free radicals. The recipe also contains garlic, which has been shown to boost the immune system and help fight off illness.
