EverydayHealthGirl.Com Promotes Benefits of Green Smoothies
Who says it ain’t easy being green? According to EverydayHealthGirl.com, a website that offers easy tips to create healthy habits, one of the easiest ways to get more than the recommended daily amounts of vegetables and fruits is to turn to the green smoothie.
Green smoothie? As unappetizing as it sounds, green smoothies offer a nice balance between the mild tastes of greens and the natural sweetness of fruits to deliver a delicious taste. But, most importantly, they provide a wide range of health benefits not found with standard, multi-colored fruit smoothies.
One of the top benefits of green smoothie health is it provides a fast, easy way to increase one’s raw vegetable and fruit consumption. According to a 2009 report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 67.5 percent of American adults eat less than the recommended two servings of fruit per day, and 73.7 percent eat less than the recommended three daily servings of vegetables.
Simply put, most people aren’t getting enough fruits and vegetables in their diets. On the other hand, the website suggests that one green smoothie can include 8 to 16 servings of fruits and vegetables — well beyond the daily recommended allowance.
What does getting more raw fruits and vegetables mean for one’s health? Everyday Health Girl explains that green smoothie health leads to a multitude of life enhancing benefits, such as improved healing and disease prevention, higher energy levels throughout the day, better digestion and bowel health, and weight loss.
For those who assume they would prefer to continue eating their vegetables, rather than drinking them, Everyday Health Girl clarifies that the green smoothie is also a more efficient way to get one’s nutrition. Imagine the time it would take to prepare and eat 8 to 16 servings of fruits and vegetables, whereas blending and drinking a green smoothie takes a matter of minutes. Furthermore, blending greens breaks down the cell walls and releases the nutrients, making the body more able to access the vitamins and minerals quickly.
