Slow down with a Smoothie
In a world of fast food and snacks, keeping healthy has become harder and harder. Time is constantly against you, juggling your work, kids, and the rest that life throws at you. Smoothies allow us a small escape from the day-to-day stress, and allow us some sweet, energetic, vitamin-packed goodness that all of the family can enjoy!
What is a Smoothie?
A smoothie is a blended mixture of ingredients which have been mixed to create a thick drink. They often contain two or more fruits or vegetables, and other ingredients to compliment. This could be honey, yoghurt, or oats, for example. A smoothie will also have a ‘thinning’ ingredient such as water, orange juice, or milk. This helps to make the smoothie easier to drink.
Why the Smoothie Diet?
A smoothie diet is not a method to becoming instantly thin, and it is not a miracle cure. A smoothie diet is a varied, and tasty, way to a healthier lifestyle. Think about it… ensuring you get your five-a-day out of the way in just one or two smoothies. Let’s consider the following well-known facts:
- Fruits and vegetables are packed with vitamins!
Smoothies are great for maintaining healthier skin, nails, and hair! They help your organs, and encourage more energy. You’ll feel more energized to get up and do stuff like exercise or work-from-home activities. Or you’ll just be more attentive at your job, and will generally feel MUCH better living the smoothie diet!
- Smoothies contain good calories!
A smoothie isn’t a stick or celery, nor is it a greasy box of deep friend chicken. They are the perfect mix of allowing you to give yourself enough get-up-and-go energy for the day, whilst filling you with good calories that promote a healthier lifestyle!
- They are fun for all the family!
Tired of trying bland salads and raw veg? Smoothies are endless in their make-up. You can mix hundreds, or even thousands, of combinations. They can be a great way to spend fun time with your kids, whilst subconsciously preparing them to lead a healthier lifestyle when they grow up. Just remember to secure the lid on the blender before they press “GO”!
Is a Smoothie Diet Expensive?
No! That’s the thing… Diet pills, supplements, and all these “miracle cures” are expensive and are designed to SUCK YOU IN to a sales funnel. If there was a miracle cure, do you honestly think they’d be selling it to you for $27?! Thought not! A smoothie diet only requires a blender, some ingredients, and a couple of minutes of your time. It uses PROVEN goodness like fruit and vegetables to support you to live a healthier life!
