Hey Chicks,

At FIT CHICKS Academy we love seeing the creative smoothie recipes our Holistic Nutrition Weight Loss Expert students whip up in their blenders! Today we are excited to share this recipe from Holistic Nutrition Weight Loss Expert Program  grad Bella Hanske.

“My name is Bella. I’m a Food Specialist, retired RN, Zumba Instructor, Zumba Kids and Zumbini instructor, Doula and Postpartum Doula. A mom to my sweet 2 year old boy and I’m happily married.

I always was passionate about nutrition. I wanted to have more knowledge towards being a food specialist. I struggle with weight issue myself after a series of injuries. Then I started using bmi scales to make sure I complete my goals and lose some weight.

[FIT CHICKS] spoke to my soul. I didn’t feel worthy to do a certification as I think I don’t look apart. You exactly addressed this in your lives and it became clear to me how passionate you are about this topic and how right you are!!!!

My favorite part of the program was the assignments, having to have a volunteer person and the practical exam (even though this was scary lol)

I haven’t started working as a HWLE but I plan to once my son is in FT daycare.

If you are considering taking the HWLE program, don’t think about it. Don’t wait. DO IT!!! You will NOT regret it!

I loved the modules and the bonuses offered. In general [FIT CHICKS] are very personable and within reach. Loved this very personal approach.”

Recipe: Mango Tango Smoothie

I created the smoothie to have a refreshing healthy meal replacement. The smoothie is beneficial for weight  management as it has the well balanced amount of calories, fat, protein and fiber. It also includes ceylon cinnamon
to help with balancing your blood sugar levels.
