A HEALTHIER YOU, A SMOOTHER YOU: 7 REASONS YOU SHOULD INCORPORATE SMOOTHIES TO YOUR DIET

Smoothies are a great way to kick start your day, boost your energy, and nourish your body. The best smoothies are nutrient-dense, providing vitamins and oils necessary for good nutrition. 

1. Good thing about smoothies is that you can make them at home. A homemade smoothie for your morning meal is an excellent choice for breakfast on-the-go. You can make it minutes before you leave the house and sip it on your way to work, school or in your home office.

2. Smoothies are not time consuming. It would take you less time to make one than prepare a full meal. 

3. The number of healthy ingredients you can add to your smoothie is practically limitless. Besides your basic fruits and vegetables, you can add an array of various spices, herbs, superfoods, and other health foods. The possibilities and combinations are endless.

4. Consuming smoothies is a great way to get your fruits or vegetables in your diet. Unlike fruit juice or using a juicer, smoothies use the whole fruit and vegetable so that you get all the fiber and nutrients. Fiber is essential for good colon health and it keeps your bowels in working order. Fiber also gives you a full feeling, so you tend to eat less which make smoothies a good choice if you’re trying to lose weight.

5. Smoothies provide your body with the nutrients it needs to excel during sporting activity, and recover and rebuild the body after working out. It is easier for your body to absorb and assimilate the nutrients in a smoothie as opposed to a meal.

6. You can consume a smoothie at any meal, not just breakfast. No time for lunch? Grab or make a quick smoothie!

7. We all crave sweets and unhealthy foods from time to time. Reduce those cravings, or better yet, replace them with a healthy alternative.
