A very simple way of consuming loads of fruit and vegetables every day has to be healthy smoothies. Smoothies are rich in fiber and are super-fuel for getting your metabolism really going.
In this way, they aid in weight loss as this fiber keeps you feeling full long after you have consumed your delicious healthy snack. You are therefore much less likely to snack on the wrong food types and note that they can be prepared super-quickly. Another plus!
Be Healthy In Easy Way Just For You
A smoothie also keeps you well hydrated and they are full of goodness in the form of essential vitamins and minerals. The health benefits are enormous and that extra energy a real plus. In fact, the energy boost from a delicious healthy smoothie when you are feeling quite weary beats a cup of coffee hands down!
Healthy smoothies are a delicious snack or you may prefer to turn them into a meal. For optimum flavor, I look for fresh, ripe fruit that is in season. If you have a quick look at what’s in your pantry a delicious meal can be prepared in next to no time. You might have apples, carrots maybe some ginger. That’ll work straight away. Think out of the square and you will be surprised what combinations work when planning healthy smoothie drinks.
Another benefit of a smoothie is that they are low in calories if you make the sensible choice of either low-fat milk or low-fat yogurt. These still taste absolutely lovely. However, if you desire rich and creamy you need to look no further than your freezer as the colder they are the more creamy they become!
The lovely part of having a healthy smoothie when it is thanklessly hot or humid is that you can enjoy that wonderful fresh flavor, while still satisfying your appetite. You can also be happy in the knowledge that it tastes as good as an ice-cream but is certainly better for you.
Even the kids can get off to healthy eating habits by asking Mum for a smoothie as opposed to an ice-cream! Chances are you will have everything on hand to make them a truly delicious treat. Everyone knows we need a lot of fruit and vegetables daily, but how many people actually have enough? The good news is that if you throw them all into a smoothie you will certainly be well on the way to better general health. In a well-balanced diet they are an ideal snack and you still manage to maintain high energy levels. Eating on the run is easy as you get a high-fuel burst, faster metabolism, great tastes and loads of energy.
Choose fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables if possible or store a variety in your freezer of berries or maybe even that banana that is a little too brown to consume ordinarily. If you choose to freeze fruits in this way make sure you freeze them on a tray first and keep them all separated.
Once frozen they will split into bite-size pieces and you can take them out as you require. A real plus here with your delectable healthy smoothies is that the frozen fruits become rich and creamy and totally scrumptious.
