Green smoothies are fantastic for you. I’m incorporating smoothies in my daily routines more and more. Smoothies on their own are delicious and super healthy, but adding some greens just adds to the perfection. I often have them for breakfast or take them with me to work in a glass jar as a snack.
Tip – chew your smoothies. Yup, you read that right. The short explanation is that chewing your smoothies will activate the saliva production in your mouth and help your digestion. Blending the fruits will do some of the digestion job for you, but drinking food without chewing it can be a bit of a shock for your stomach. Most people don’t know this, so it’s a cool thing to pass on.
Recipe, from this blog:
One green apple
Half a banana, frozen
A good handful spinach
I tbsp hemp seeds
A splash of water
A small piece of celery (optional)
Blend everything together. I like putting the softer (not frozen) ingredients at the bottom to make the job easier for my blender. Start with only a bit of water and add more as you see the consistency coming along.
