Green Smoothies For Beauty
Green Smoothies are gaining a lot of popularity. But you’re still skeptical, just because everyone else thinks they’re the cat’s PJs isn’t proof that they’re not just the latest fad in a “if it doesn’t work immediately on to the next great secret weapon” world. Here’s a list of the 6 best reasons to start drinking your veggies.
Top 6 Reasons to Drink Green Smoothies
1. You’re not a big vegetable person, if you were you’d be a vegetarian and you wouldn’t need a supplemental smoothie to provide all those vital nutrients.
2. You ARE a huge vegetable person. Wait whaat? Green Smoothies are one of the few vegetarian power meals that can be made easily, quickly and taste delicious. Every single person has had delicious vegetarian cuisine, the reason we don’t eat our veggies isn’t because they aren’t tasty, it’s because it isn’t convenient. Eating a head of cauliflower doesn’t sound appetizing, this cauliflower salad does, but it requires time and effort.
3. Alkalize! Remember the pH scale from high school chemistry? Me neither. The important takeaway here is that the vast majority of all the foods we eat are acidic (beer, coffee, wheat, beef, pork etc.). Green veggies are basic and will help balance your pH levels. An acidic environment is an environment that promotes disease.
4. Energy levels. I guarantee if you take our 30 day smoothie challenge you’ll have noticeably more energy by the time you’re done.
5. Weight loss: Jonathon Bailor has a hypothesis, that it’s not about calorie counting it’s about total volume consumed. If you consume high quality nutrient packed food, such as the ingredients found in green smoothies, your chance at shedding those stubborn pounds goes way up.
6. Minerals, Vitamins, Anti-Oxidants and Phytonutrients! Minerals and vitamins are essential for keeping your engine running smoothly on a day to day basis. Anti-oxidants help defend cells from damage, and while phytonutrients aren’t essential they help to prevent disease such as cancer and heart disease. Plus they help your skin looking healthy as good as you feel.
