Essential green smoothie recipe for energy and clear skin
I’m sure you’ve heard that a higher consumption of fruit and vegetables is associated with a lower risk of all-cause mortality including cancer and heart attacks. But what researchers have recently learned is that for every additional serving of fruits or vegetables you consume daily, there is a 4% reduction in your risk of cardiovascular mortality. Every single extra serving of fruits and vegetables you ingest really does add up in a measurable way towards better health.
This week we’re adding a basic green smoothie to our morning routine. What might seem like a small habit is extremely beneficial for your entire body, particularly for disease prevention and overall energy levels. The fibre and nutrients in this powerful glass of goodness act to keep you feeling full and reduce cravings for other foods. This, along with the weight management benefits from eating avocados, is a fantastic kick-start to weight-loss. Additionally, after even a week of eating these skin friendly nutrients every day, most people notice an improvement in the overall condition of their skin.
“This one tiny green smoothie habit is incredibly rewarding.”
Green smoothies are the easiest way I’ve found to sneak nutrients into our diet in a very pleasurable way. When you taste it, you won’t believe this sweet tasting concoction has vegetables in it, but as you’ll see below, it contains more than 100% of your daily antioxidant needs for good health.
