Have you been wondering what all the fuss is about Smoothies?
Question: How can I get 2-5 servings of fruits and vegetables in one meal?
Smoothies may seem like a lot of trouble; you need a blender and a variety of different ingredients.
It is a bit of a transition when you decide to incorporate this delicious, nutritious meal-in-a-mug into your daily routine.
I know from experience that trying anything ‘new’ can be challenging.
The question you have to ask yourself is this:
Are you getting enough servings of fruits and vegetables every day?
If not, it is worth the trouble of preparing a delicious meal made entirely of healthful, fresh and nutritious produce.
Is it expensive to keep the smoothie ingredients on hand?
If you are currently preparing cold, processed cereal for your first meal of the day?
Believe me, that is going to cost you in health issues.
Worse yet, are you skipping breakfast altogether and running on empty?
This is also a great way to ruin your health and rack up expensive medical bills as you go through your life.
When you look at the big picture, smoothies become very affordable!
Organic is always the best choice, especially because since it is so easy to blend up healthful skins and certain seeds. (Use caution since many seeds are toxic. Never consume seeds that you are unsure of).
The best and most powerful nutrients are usually found in the skins. If your produce has been treated with pesticides and shellac and other harmful toxins, you really don’t want to be consuming it.
Generally speaking, organic and GMO free is always the safest bet when it comes to food. Our bodies have been subsisting on organic and natural foods for possibly millions of years, at the very least thousands. We have no idea what the consequences from the new technology will be, but current research suggests it is not good for humans or animals.
Here is a delicious, easy to prepare smoothie recipe:
1 handful of kale, spinach or other leafy green
1 cup of frozen blueberries, blackberries, or strawberries.
1 scoop of super food blend- optional
2 tablespoons plain, unsweetened yogurt
Unsweetened almond milk to blend
Sprinkle of cinnamon or ginger
Throw the ingredients into a blender ending with the liquid.
Blend and enjoy!
