One of the best things about the smoothie weight loss diet is that you can use it to sneak more fruits and veggies into your diet and that of every member of your family. This is, of course, particularly true for green smoothies.
Changing Your Diet Thinking
Think of smoothies not as a drudgery but as a condensed salad. You can blend up a big serving of spinach, kale, and other dark leafy greens that you know are good for you and drink it all in a smoothie, and it’s easier to eat than a salad!
Add a little fruit – particularly berries with high amounts of antioxidants and a little coconut water to replace much needed electrolytes and minerals and you have a healthy meal that’s hard to beat. Best of all it’s portable and you can sip it anytime anywhere.
Making the Greens Diet Easy
Eating plenty of healthy fruits and vegetables isn’t always easy. Add to that the fact that we’re encouraged to eat our veggies raw, and frankly there are only so many salads you can eat in a given day.
Green smoothies are a great way to turn that same amount of greens and veggies and turn it into a yummy drink by adding nothing more than a bit of fruit and water – two ingredients we’re encouraged to consume more of as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Replace Junk with Quality Nutritious Foods
Don’t give up your salad or your plate of steamed veggies. Instead, use smoothies as a way to add even more good nutrition to your diet and give processed and junk food the boot instead. You’ll feel better and it will have a positive impact on your waist line.
Don’t stop with just yourself. Get the entire family on board with smoothies. They are the perfect way to sneak healthy food into your kid’s diet and who couldn’t use a little more “real food” in their diet. Sneak the smoothie weight loss diet into your meal plan and see how the whole family benefits!
