SALADS? REALLY?

  Can we be honest? Salads can only get so interesting, especially if you are replacing more than one meal with them. You may start out with good intentions, but staying on your path to healthy eating can be difficult if you find yourself becoming bored or disinterested in what you’re eating. 

Smoothies offer a great alternative as a meal replacement. By simply blending your favorite vegetables and fruit with yogurt, eating clean could not be easier. You can incorporate textured, sweet, sour, bitter, or even spicy ingredients to maximize the variety in your healthy eating plan. 


Your Weight Loss Weapon

Including smoothies into your diet can have major benefits, including rapid weight loss. It all depends on the ingredients. Some fat-burning powerhouses include berries, red pepper, and green vegetables like broccoli and kale. Be sure to include protein to promote satiety and keep those cravings at bay.


Hydration

Your body needs eight to 12 glasses of water a day; that’s a lot of water! Proper hydration is crucial for so many of our body’s functions, include energy and weight loss, but it can be challenging to consume that much water. Smoothies can serve as an additional, more interesting way to get the water we need, especially those that include fruits and vegetables with high water content. 


You Stay Full For A Long Time

Smoothies, especially those rich in fiber, are great for people who love to snack. Starting your day with protein- and fiber-packed smoothies can help curb your appetite and keep you feeling fuller longer. Try including ingredients with healthy fats, as well, like half of an avocado.


Improved Digestion

Poor digestion is often the root cause of many diseases; smoothies can become your guard against that. Green smoothies especially provide the hydration and fiber your body needs to improve your digestion and increase your metabolism. Alkaline-based smoothies may also resolve a variety of other internal issues, such as heartburn or acid reflux. 


Strengthen The Immune System 

Smoothies are a quick, easy way to get your body the protein, vitamins, and antioxidants it needs to strengthen your immune system. Sweet potato is an unexpected, great-tasting ingredient that can help support your bones, eyes, and overall immune health. 


Better Sleep 

Smoothies can actually help you have a better night’s rest. Research has shown that magnesium and calcium can contribute to more sound sleep at night, so throw in a kiwi or a banana.
