Vegetable Smoothies Can Be Your Best Friend

You know that a vegetable smoothie is healthier than a bucket of chicken but you may not realize just how much so it is. We’ll overview a few areas in which your diet and health will benefit by adding 3-5 vegetable smoothies to your weekly diet. You know that if you fill up on vegetables, there will be less room for junk food, but did you realize that drinking your vegetables in a smoothie form can also be delicious and greatly beneficial to your health? It’s the case and when you spend a full month trying a few shakes a week, we’re willing to bet the farm that you feel noticeably better!

Your first starter tip is to invest in a quality blender. There’s really no other easy way to have a good vegetable smoothie aside from going to a business that serves such things a la carte. Once you’re prepared with a blender, load up the green leafy vegetables. They’ll form a nice base to the drink, pack in the calcium and make sure the smoothie is the color it’s supposed to be – green!

Kale and other leafy greens contain a high amount of rich calcium. This will help prevent kidney stones, which are extremely painful. Another benefit of drinking these healthy-veggie shakes is the fact that you’ll feel full longer and crave less heavy carbs such as bread, pasta and rice. Those winter carbs will slow your body down and leave your immune system open for attack. Subbing out slow carbs for fast veggies is your go-to move for optimum health.

Without getting a bit too describing or vulgar, let’s just say that you’ll be able to “go” when you’re on the spot. Vegetable smoothies are great for keeping the digestive health of your body in tip-top shape and can have you feeling very regular and dependable. You won’t have a bloated or backed-up issue like those who regularly dine on fast food. You’ll be able to do your business!

Some awesome vegetables to consider are broccoli, okra, zucchini and brussels sprouts. Spruce up the flavor with some persimmons, lemon, lime or some carrots. French beans are filled with water and will give your shake a bit of a natural sweetness. Add peppers for a kick and a banana or some apples to take the “super-healthy” edge off. Staying on a smoothie-based diet will help you keep regular and in the best shape of your life. Trust in the veggie.
