Smoothies to the Rescue
They are on everybody’s cheat sheet! Not only can they be made to be delicious but because they can disguise some not so popular foods such as the oiliness of healthy fats, they can also subdue those crazy food cravings!
Proteins too can be stowed away in a flavorful smoothie. In short, you can stash whole foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, protein, fiber, yogurt and foods you hate in a well-made smoothie.
Cherries, cranberries, pineapple, melon, apple, banana, peach, pineapple, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, guava, pear, kiwi, watermelon, papaya, mango, grapes and passion fruit are all amazing additions to your morning wake-up smoothie.
A tart citrus smoothie with grapefruit, orange, lime or lemon pulp can be made delicious when combined with coconut and fresh pineapple!
Carrots (cooked), pumpkin, celery, beets (cooked), spinach, kale, cauliflower and broccoli (cooked), mushrooms, chillies, beans, asparagus, avocados, and cucumbers are all highly nutritious contributions to your healthy smoothie.
Coconut, walnuts, cashews, ground flax seeds, chia, hemp and of course peanuts are just a few of the assorted nut butters which may be happily added to your smoothie for a more satiated feeling.
If you are that person with a life out of control, running from sun-up to sun-down, smoothies are your answer. Smoothies provide that chance to relax, but still get the benefit of a full meal, with possible added vitamins, oils, polyphenols, probiotics and more to create that immeasurable sense of well being which comes from a balanced diet.
