5 reasons why these smoothies will rock your health
1. The right balance of macronutrients, including protein.
In order to call a smoothie a complete meal it’s important to combine the right ingredients, using the right ratios. The smoothies you’ll be making will contain all macronutrient groups including: smart, high-fiber carbohydrates; healthy fats; and high-quality protein.
Protein tends to be the missing ingredient in a lot of smoothie recipes. Protein contains essential nutrients that are required for weight loss, gut healing and optimal health, which is why you’ll find high-quality protein in all the recipes.
2. No excess fruit or juices, keeping blood sugar levels in check.
Adding multiple cups of fruit or juice to your smoothie may defeat the purpose of what smoothie making is all about – to be healthier. Excess high-sugar ingredients (fruit sugars in this case) will only create short-lived energy and may lead to health issues down the road. Chronically elevated blood sugar levels can lead to weight gain and a list of other illnesses.
These smoothies will keep your blood sugar levels in check, yet still give you small doses of powerful nutrients and fiber found in whole fruits.
3. Healthy fats for optimal health and a smaller waistline.
Many people tend to associate dietary fat with the fat that ends up stored on their body. This idea couldn’t be further from the truth – or at least when it comes to healthy fats. Healthy fats actually fuel and support every cell in your body, which is important for optimal health – and optimal health leads to effortless weight loss.
In addition, fat is the body’s preferred and most reliable form of energy, allowing your body and mind to run more efficiently. Healthy dietary fat not only gives your body the fuel it needs, but also allows you to absorb fat-soluble vitamins found in fruits and vegetables.
4. Loaded with green goodness.
‘Eat your greens’ wasn’t ingrained in our minds from a young age for no good reason. The list of benefits vegetables provide is endless: antioxidants to combat free radicals, essential vitamins and minerals, detoxification, collagen production, gut health through dietary fiber, weight loss, disease prevention, etc.
These smoothies make it realistic to add more vegetables to your diet in an easy & delicious way.
5. Gut-friendly and healing ingredients.
I have chosen nothing but nutrient-dense, high-quality ingredients that are gut-friendly.
All my smoothie recipes and recommended protein powders are free of gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, grains, GMO ingredients, fillers, artificial flavours, colours, preservatives or sweeteners and other common gut irritants. These smoothies are safe for those dealing with IBS or other gut related issues – and will provide nutrients needed to help heal an unhealthy gut.
