Did you know that you need 9 to 11 servings of vegetables per day? Even if you like your greens, that is still a high number of servings, and smoothies are a stealthy way to sneak more goodness into your day. Green smoothies have revolutionized my health and I hope they will do the same for you!
I always ask my health coaching clients, "Do you drink smoothies?" If not, I recommend giving them a try! No real cooking required; at most just some washing or chopping and clean up dishes! It's the fast food of the super-healthy!
Why is this guide specifically about "green" smoothies? Why not just fruit smoothies?
An easy way to add more servings of vegetables into your day
More veggies= more critical micro-nutrients
Less fruit=less blood sugar spiking sugars
More veggies=more fiber=satiety
More veggies=fewer calories
In short, more of the goodness with less of the not-so-good! Enjoy my personal guide to the best ingredients you can throw in your blender!
Whenever you need an energy boost, have a glass of my super-green- it is so energizing you will wonder if you actually had a cup of coffee!
