One of the simplest ways to improve your health is to eat more vegetables AND the easiest way to get more vegetables in your diet is to drink Green Smoothies. They are packed with nutrition, easy to make and easy to eat!
There are lot of things you can do to eat clean and improve your health but it’s important to take it step by step. I find that when I try one new thing at a time, I am WAY more likely to stick to it in the long term.
Take Green Smoothies for example. If you could do only one thing to improve your health, this is what I suggest. Drink more Green Smoothies! Challenge yourself to drink just ONE green smoothie a day for a few weeks.
Imagine all the nutrition that is packed into just one of these Easy Green Smoothies. If I had to eat the same amount of kale in salad form, I probably couldn’t do it. When it’s packed into a smoothie with fruit for sweetness, you almost don’t notice.
Are Green Smoothies Good For You?
Heck yes, they are but it all depends on what you put in them.
The most important part of the Green Smoothie is, duh, the greens. They are the number one most nutritious thing that you should be eating.
Leafy greens are essential to building a healthy body and immune system. AND eating greens crowds out other foods that are less nutritious. If you fill yourself up on vegetables you won’t have room for donuts.
