Losing weight successfully starts with breakfast and the right drinks. Last week there were already the first 6 of a total of twelve reasons why you should start adding green smoothies to your diet today.
7. They provide better health – Green smoothies are rich in antioxidants and botanicals, so you are consuming a variety of natural substances that improve your health.
8. They provide us with fiber – According to the WebMD website, the average adult only consumes 15g of fiber per day. The Institute of Medicine states that women should consume 25g and men should consume 38g of fiber per day. Fiber is important for our intestines and ensures regulated digestion and helps with successful weight loss.
9. They support the immune system - Chlorophyll, a green pigment found in algae and plants, not only strengthens the immune system, but is also good for circulation, digestion and has a detoxifying effect.
10. Smoothie to go – Green smoothies can be taken anywhere in a drinking bottle – anytime. Perfect for nipping cravings in the bud and helping you lose weight successfully.
11. They vary in taste - Of course you can follow recipes, but you can also experiment until you find your personal taste.
12. Children love them – convince children about vegetables and fruits? Not an easy task. With a delicious smoothie, this is no longer a problem and they voluntarily eat their daily portion of vegetables and fruits.
A good mix in terms of taste and nutrients is 60 % fruits and 40 % vegetables. You can also add coconut water, green tea, guarana and ginseng, whey protein, acai berries, almonds or flax seeds, for example.
