Green smoothies are a simple way to pack in the veggies! It can prove tricky to ensure that you’re hitting that 7-10 portions of fruit and veg recommendation each day, but including a green smoothie into your daily routine certainly makes it easier.
The trick is to turn drinking a green smoothie into a new daily habit, until it forms into a routine and you’ll automatically be reaching for your blender.
At Boost Yourself – we challenge you to try a green smoothie a day! Why? Here’s 7 good reasons to give it a go…
1. It helps with natural, healthy weight-loss.
If we had a dollar for every person, who has ever written to us saying that drinking green smoothies has helped them with weight loss, then we could easily close our doors, buy a private island, and drink pina coladas under a coconut tree for the rest of our days!
A daily green smoothie is a great way to help with losing weight in a natural and
sustainable way. To achieve the best results, you should drink green smoothies as a separate meal (for breakfast or lunch). Or choose a smoothie over an unhealthy snack helps too. Extra points, when you a add couple of teaspoons of superfoods to your smoothie!
Superfoods are packed with nutrition and will help ease different cravings, keep you full for longer and charge your body with all the good vitamins and minerals it needs.
2. A natural boost of energy – without the coffee
Thanks to the work of the blender, creating a smoothie with fresh vegetables and fruit breaks the protein and fibre into easily digestible liquid form. Making it easy to digest and absorb into your body much more quickly.
In addition to that, the fruits, vegetables, berries and superfoods will restock your
body with a wide variety of vitamins, antioxidants, phytonutrients and other natural substances, that help your body produce energy.
“I feel 10 times better, have more energy than ever before and my mind is alert. Smoothies have changed my overall eating pattern and guided me towards a healthier and more active life. Unbelievable, how one little thing can change so much!”Elie
3. Easy to make – fits in with your routine.
The secret of smoothies is not just their healthiness, but how easy they are to make too! Especially when you’ve created a few favourite recipes that you know you love.
There’s nothing easier than throwing all the ingredients into a blender and pushing the button. A minute later you’ll have a delicious, healthy smoothie to drink right away or to take with you – to school/work/or the gym.
The reason why I am extremely taken with Boost Yourself is that after boosting my smoothies with a dose of superfoods my skin is in much better shape.
4. You make healthier choices and have less cravings
Starting your day with a smoothie, helps avoid overeating and helps you to make healthier food choices during the day. If you tend to not eat breakfast – whether you don’t have the time or appetite in the mornings – a smoothie is the perfect choice to start your day off the healthier way!
5. Your skin benefits too!
Drinking smoothies has shown to have healthy effects on the skin too. All of those nutrients and minerals that are heading straight into your bloodstream have a direct affect on your cells – helping balance the hormones and prevent skin problems. Green smoothies enrich your body with the nutrients and fluid it needs
Great ingredients to add to boost skin health are: pineapple, ginger, turmeric, blueberries and of course green leafy vegetables. Adding these into your daily smoothie will help to take care of your skin – from the inside out.
6. Helps to heal your digestive system
Fruits and vegetables are high in fiber and so green smoothies are the perfect way to consume the recommended amount of fiber each day. The main task of the digestive system is to extract nutrients from your food to provide energy for the body and brain. In other words – the better the digestion, the healthier body!
The most effective body system cleaners are nutrient dense algae’s like spirulina and chlorella, also wheatgrass and barley grass. We’ve put these four greens into our healthy detox superfood blend with an added boost of Vitamin C from camu-camu an Amazonian berry, which contains more vitamin C than any other food.
7. Nutrient dense superfoods
When you add to your smoothie a teaspoon or two of superfoods blends you enrich it with vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, bioactive particles,antioxidants, chlorophyll, important amino acids and unsaturated fatty acids – all your body needs for its normal functioning. Superfoods are 100% natural and help us boost our immune system, energy, maintain overall well-being and regulate digestion.
Habits are easy to form and when drinking one smoothie a day can be so beneficial to you without going through too much trouble, why not try it yourself?
