Here is Why You Should Have a Daily Smoothie
I post a picture of my daily smoothies on social media just about every day
I love smoothies and they are great for so many reasons. Here are some of the reasons I have and you should have a daily smoothie everyday:
They are nutritious.
You can pack as much fruit and vegetables into them as you would like. I'll admit, I'm not the biggest vegetable fan. Smoothies make it easy for me to get the daily recommended servings of veggies.
They are packed with fiber.
Fresh juice is great however, it is stripped of all of the fiber that we need to keep us healthy and regular. When making smoothies you keep all of the good stuff in there. This also means the nutrients are delivered to your system slower and help to keep your blood sugar regulated.
Smoothies are filling.
If you are trying to control cravings and decrease your appetite, smoothies are great for this also. I often have a smoothie for breakfast and it keeps me full well into lunch. Adding in filling foods like chia seeds, flax seeds and psyllium husk can also help with satiation.
Smoothies are NEVER boring!
You can make so many combinations of smoothies, the choices are endless! I like to experiment with different flavors, fruits, and protein powders. Doing this helps keep me interested in drinking smoothies and keeps me excited about new recipe creations.
I also like to make smoothie bowls, these are made a little thicker and you can add fresh fruit and toppings and eat it with a spoon. There are many more benefits to having a daily smoothie but these are the ones that keep me making mine each day.
