If you’ve done anything with Raw Food, you’ve heard the term “Green Juice.” What goes with Green Juice, and the raw food lifestyle, are smoothies! Yes folks, you read that right, Green Juice Smoothies! What is this Smoothie we’re talking about? The best way I know of to explain this is to think of your favorite ice cream joint. You know the shakes and smoothies you get there? The same concept goes into this Green Juice Smoothie. (without the ice cream).
Instead of ice cream, add fruits and fresh veggies until you get a nice, smooth, creamy concoction. Guess what? That’s a smoothie in its purest form! OK Andrew, why are these Green Smoothies so good for you? Great question! I’ll list a few of the benefits below. You may even be a bit surprised at what you read.
First of all, if you truly understand what goes into this type of drink, it’s easy to understand how good it is for you. For instance, when you make your first smoothie, which will probably be done in some sort of blender, you’ll use the basic stuff, usually a 50/50 split of fruits and vegetables. Apples and Pears are probably the easiest and, of course, vegetables. Keep it simple and start with simple green leafy stuff like spinach. Then, after you learn a bit more, you can branch out (no pun intended!).I strongly suggest you to visit Organifi Green Juice to learn more about this.
A Green Juice Smoothie can be used as a meal replacement. Oh sure, you can find countless protein shakes that claim this, and they may do it, I’m not here to talk about that stuff, but a healthy smoothie, that you create and know what’s in it, hits all the nutrients you’re body craves (and needs). Think about it, how many times have you had a meal with fruits and veggies? If you’re into a healthy lifestyle, you’ve had this kind of meal before. You felt great afterwards, right? Well, now you will have it again, but in a different kind of form. So, I’ll challenge you to have a nice Green Smoothie for breakfast instead of that protein shake next time, OK?
Also, they are not just good for your body, but your brain as well. If your body is getting the nutrients and vitamins it needs, it just makes sense the blood flows better throughout they body, which includes the brain. With good blood flow through your brain, that thing that controls your body, you’ll be more focused; you’ll be in a MUCH better mood; you’ll see things more clearly; etc. That’s a topic for another day, OK?
Another benefit of this Smoothie is to your digestive track. We’ve all heard that a lot of foods out there lack fiber, so we take fiber pills, right? Well, fruits and vegetable have natural fiber in them and, when you juice or “smoothie” regularly, you’ll “go” regularly, get it? AND, since it’s all natural, it’s great for your body. One thing to remember, without getting into details, what comes out of you (yes, in THAT way) may surprise you, so be ready for it! And YES, that’s a good thing!
One more thing about Raw Food Green Juice Smoothie type of drink, it helps you get away from that processed food addiction you’ve build up all these years. Why? Because it’s all natural stuff! With obesity the way it is, maybe we all should step back and actually start to wonder why it is and how we got this way. Hey, if you want to keep up with processed food, great! Go for it! All I’m saying is that if you feel you’re overweight and want to do something about it, why don’t you start with WHAT you put in your body, not HOW MUCH you put in your body. Just something to think about.
