Green smoothies are all the rage. From celebrities to athletes, people love green smoothies and the effects it has on the mind and body. In this article, I am going to show you why you should start drinking your greens every day!
Green smoothies are smoothies made from primarily greens such as kale, spinach and Swiss chard, mixed with other assorted fruits to even out taste. Many people like to add strawberries, mango, kiwi or blueberries because of their sweetness. You can also add protein powder and other powdered supplements to kill two birds with one stone.
Why are people raving about green smoothies? Well for one, green smoothies are extremely versatile. You can drink them to both gain and lose weight. Adding certain components to green smoothies can make them meal replacements, something more common when incorporating green smoothies into a cleanse. Green smoothies can also be used to gain weight, as they are an easy way to take in extra calories that provide an abundance of nutritional value.
Green smoothies can also play a role in clearing your head. The more fried, processed junk food you eat, the foggier your head can become, impairing your ability to concentrate, stay alert and work diligently. By replacing the junk food with a green smoothie, it will clear your head and get you ready for anything you need to do throughout the day. Opting for the green smoothie can also dampen those cravings for junk food!
Introducing green smoothies to your diet can also help your physical appearance! The smoothies will not only help you lose weight, they can rid your skin of acne and wrinkles. Because the contents of the smoothie have detoxifying properties, blemishes will disappear. The extra skin hydration will also keep your skin tight and free of wrinkles.
Do your research. Go online and find green smoothies that work and sound tastiest to you! There is something for everyone, and the health benefits are limitless. By incorporating green smoothies into your diet, you could be feeling and looking better than ever. I’ve included a recipe for you to try 🙂
