  • Get The Most from Your Smoothie

    Not all smoothies are healthy. America has gotten crazy over smoothies. But like any craze, beware of overdoing it. Not all smoothies are created equal. Choose healthy ingredients and avoid

    1. SEEDS

    These add fibre, omega 3 fatty acids. The chia seeds will help to keep you fuller for longer, helping to control your appetite. So try out some chia, flax, or hemp seeds.

    2. NUT AND OTHER BUTTERS

    These will give you some fat and protein and keep you fuller longer. They also are a good source of fibre and several minerals like iron, zinc and magnesium. Try these butters: pumpkin seed, sesame, or peanut, almond.

    3. VEGGIES

    Smoothies are a great way to add veggies in to your day. Many popular smoothie recipe include carrots, beets, spinach, kale, celery, pumpkin, squash, or cucumber.

    4. FRUIT

    I love adding fruits to a smoothie. Eating the whole fruit gives you the fibre! Fruit also provides a lot of flavor, sweetness, and vitamins.  Use fresh or frozen.

    5. GRAINS

    For added B vitamins, fibre, and an extra boost of fullness, add some grains such as oats or oat bran.

    6. FLAVOR BOOSTERS

    Use local and/or organic honey or stevia. Try also adding cinnamon, vanilla extract, cayenne or fresh ginger for extra flavor.
