Benefits of drinking Smoothies
Drinking the recommended 6-8 glasses of water can seem daunting but with smoothies, you’re already part of the way there.
We can get some of our water intake from our food and this includes smoothies, not least because lots of fruits and vegetables are quite rich in water.
If you find yourself snacking because you never feel full, the fiber in fruit or veg based smoothies could be your new best friend!
Avocado is one example of a smoothie that will leave you sated until lunchtime and curb your urge to snack and you only need half an avocado to get its benefits.
I’ve talked about the fact that smoothies help you to feel fuller and the knock on effect of this is that you’ll have far fewer cravings for snacks and junk food.
For example, drinking a protein rich smoothie to start the day is the perfect way to stop cravings and keep your appetite in check until your next meal. This will help a lot with your goal of being in shape!
Have you tried “Green smoothies”? This is the kind of smoothies were you blend fresh leafy green vegetables like spinach, kale, celery or collard.
These greens in particular are alkaline foods so they are your best bet to counteract the discomfort of acid reflux and heartburn.
Fruits and vegetables are a great source of nutrients and antioxidants for good health but some are proven to increase your immunity.
Adding sweet potato to your smoothies isn’t just a way to make them taste nice; the beta-carotene that they contain is an immunity booster.
