How to Add Some Zest to Boring Fruit Juices
The fact is that fruit has a delicate nature; any kind of processing destroys its potential value. The best way to eat a fruit is by itself, as a fresh smoothie and then a juice, but not packaged, as most nutrients are lost before they even enter your system.
Fresh fruit smoothies are the finest, most real form of fruit supplements. All the nutrients that the human body requires are present in balanced quantities in fresh fruit smoothies. They can be used by our bodies only when they are consumed as part of the whole food in which they occur.
Their delicious flavors quench our thirst and satisfy us so that we do not reach for the harmful thirst quenchers such as sodas, coffee and packaged drinks. They carry the added benefits of fruits, naturally increasing energy to stabilize metabolism. With metabolism in check, it is much easier to keep desired weight off, or even help in fighting binge eating.
Other than mother’s milk; there is no finer food for infants and young children than fresh fruit smoothies or juices. Fresh fruit extracts help you lose weight and feel great.
Enjoy them slowly if gulped, they may upset the blood sugar level. Including smoothie’s recipes in your everyday life means increasing the photochemical level in your diet and adding anti-oxidants to it; they are great for vitality and energy.
Blend two or three fruits together with some crushed ice and yogurt and serve chilled. Go ahead and raise smoothies for your health!!!
