The Benefits of Drinking Fruit and Vegetable Smoothies
There are a plethora of ways to feel better physically and mentally. There are just as many things to eat that can make you feel better. However, lately I have found that the intake of fruit and vegetables is uber important in aiding one to feel better. Both young and old. Eating less meat and doing the plant based thing can alter your life in unimaginable ways! Below you will find a information from informative links and a little bit of what made me become acquainted with fruit and vegetable smoothies! I hope it helps to make your life a little bit smoother!
Every now and then you start to listen to the voice in the back of your thoughts...the one that reminds you that you are getting older and not younger! and you need to take better care of yourself...this voice...for me...talks a lot about eating greens, eating fruit...and drinking water (but I already wrote that hub about water)...anyway eating greens has always been a challenge for me...my plate always seems to pass by the vegetables when dinner time comes...I used to eat more fruit when I was younger...not so much these days until I decided to do something about it. I like so many people believe that the pulp is just as important as the juice...its fibrous nature is important to the digestive system...so I did some research and came across a few sites that I personally agreed with...I decided to start making and drinking the smoothies...well to my surprise I got right into it and I've been drinking the stuff since...which is about the same time I started this new road to a healthier life...I've been drinking way more water and exercising again...all in all the smoothies have helped my energy level and one of the most important differences I have found for myself is less tenderness in the gums...hmmmmmmm....that definitely isn't something I read...I didn't try some recipe for it...it happened organically while I was experimenting with the basic recipes...finally I mixed one that I truly enjoy and find it tasty and healing! Remember you can try different combinations until you come across something you find palatable.
