Green Smoothies

by - December 30, 2018


Green Smoothies are a great way to get more nutrients into your diet. These nutrients help to activate our immune system's repair mechanisms using the phytochemicals in the food, which helps our body repair the damage from toxins and aging. 

According to Dr. Fuhrman, blending the greens help to pulverize the cell walls of the plant food. This makes the phytochemicals more beneficial, which maximizes nutrient absorption. 

A basic smoothie recipe might include the following ingredients:

2 cups greens 
1 cup frozen fruit
1 ripe banana
1 & 1/4 cups liquid
2 TBSP seeds (if using)
Any other additions
You can save money with green smoothies by using up fruit that is on the verge of spoiling. It's a great way to use up bananas. 

In my smoothie today I'm using greens that were bought on markdown, and includes kale, swiss chard, and spinach. 

Other things I include in my smoothies are Beet Boost, Matcha, and Wheat Grass powder because my research leads me to believe that these items will only increase the nutrients I put into my body. 

Somedays I use other fruit as it depends on what I have on hand. Seeds are also good to add to your smoothies. Chia, flax, and hemp seeds are good examples. 

The liquid I used today was pineapple juice and water. Some days I like to use cooled green tea, which also boosts the nutrients. 

Starting my day with a green smoothie helps to keep my energy levels high and fuels my body with the nutrients it needs. 

Do you include green smoothies as part of your diet? If so, I would love to hear about it in the comment section.
