This is the first of many “Smoothie of the Week” blog post. I will do my best to post this on Fridays, so that you can grab the ingredients on the weekend to kickstart your week. I would say get enough fresh ingredients for 3 to 4 days worth of smoothies then re-up in the middle of the week. You get the maximum benefit out of a smoothie when you are drinking it consistently. We should be aiming to have a variety of 5 to 7 different kind of fruits and vegetables daily.
In our busy everyday life, we forget to add some colorful variety. I think it cuts the work in half when you plan to have most of it at the start of your day. I personally do not add sugar to my smoothies, but you are welcome to do so. You could also add some superfood powder to your smoothies from bees pollen, maca powder, spirulina, sea moss, and so on.
Why is this a weight control smoothie?
There are chemical structures within certain fruits and vegetables that help maintain weight. These structures can be found within apples, lemons, bananas and kiwis. The key to having benefit from a smoothie is to have these fruits and vegetables be a part of your daily diet and lifestyle. You can learn more about the benefits of each ingredient below.
I hope you enjoy the recipes!
