The Smoothie Revolution

The Smoothie Revolution

I’m converted. I love them, they are easy to travel with, contain tons of nutrients and protein, fun to make and you can tailor them to be sweet, savoury, green or chocolate.

And if you’ve been on Pinterest or Instagram for any amount of time, you’ve probably seen a decent number of green smoothie pictures floating around.

SO why the smoothie revolution?

Because they’re so amazing for your body, skin, and energy levels!

Green smoothies are a great way to get fiber, vitamins, and minerals – all served up in one glass that you can take on the go!

Smoothies are:

  • Chock full of vitamins, enzymes, and minerals
  • Easy to digest, which means optimal assimilation of the nutrients you need
  • Great for stabilizing blood sugar (you will see each smoothie here has a healthy fat, and fat is key for blood sugar stabilization)
  • A fabulous way to consume a variety of different fruits or vegetables at one time
  • Terrific for cleansing the body of toxicity
  • An easy way to add more fiber to your diet for optimal bowel function

When you add in a handful of greens to your smoothie, you can an extra dose of awesomeness in every serving!

Here are some of my favorite greens to add to smoothies:

  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Swiss chard
  • Mint
  • Parsley
  • Celery
