The Benefits of Drinking a Smoothie a Day

The Benefits of Drinking a Smoothie a Day

The smoothie hype came to us from the sunny beaches of California, where warm weather and cool, healthy drinks are part of the culture. The first smoothies were made by blending orange juice, bananas, and strawberries, served right on the beach. It wasn’t long ago before other combinations were created and a whole new category of beverages was invented.

Let’s have a look why smoothie can be definitely categorised as an essential part of Healthy Diet!

 

Vegetables and Fruits hold the key to healthy diet

What a nutritious diet should consist of: protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fiber and water in proportions that promote growth and maintain healthy cells.

It also should include abundance of vegetables and fruits reach in phytochemicals that hold the key to prevent many diseases. The problem is, even the most disciplined person can find it difficult to consume the quantities of fruits and vegetables that health professionals recommend.

Adding a daily smoothie (or two!) to your diet is one of the easiest ways to ensure that you eat enough fruits and vegetables to promote good health. One large glass of blended raw vegetables (or lightly cooked if sensitive digestion) with fruits, herbs and other nutritional ingredients such as flax seeds, chia seeds, spirulina will help to strengthen the immune system, increase energy, clear skin and lower risk of diseases.
