￼Smoothies, The Right Way!
Smoothies can be a filling and nutrient dense snack or meal, but you need to know how to make it the right way so it’s not just another sugar laden milk shake that spikes your blood sugar levels!
For optimum health, it is recommended that we consume at least 9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. I know what you’re thinking, “How? I’m so busy and this is so much!” Well, smoothies are a great strategy to easily increase your daily intake of those fruits and vegetables in a fun and enjoyable way!
Take a break from the sugar-laden smoothies and stick to fiber rich superfoods that add vitamins, minerals, essential fats, phytonutrients and fiber to your diet. Your body will get the nutrients it needs to remove toxins, boost weight loss, and help to strengthen your immune system, minus the blood sugar spike that comes alongside most smoothie recipes.
It’s much easier to create healthy, long-lasting habits when you’re doing it with an inspiring group of people. And since adding one smoothie per day to your wellness practice has extraordinary benefits for your energy, immune system and overall well-being, I thought it would be the perfect idea to get us all motivated....
