I’ve been drinking a lot of smoothies the last three months. I usually have it for breakfast, after a work out……. when I was working out. The thing is, when I got sick with coughs and colds for two weeks, I stopped working out. I haven’t been making any progress ever since. I try to eat in moderation and with as much fruits and vegetables as possible. But of course, I need to get some physical activity going on in my life!
Anyway, let’s get back on topic before I get carried away. I’ve read that fruit smoothies is one of the easiest way to nourish our bodies with essential vitamins and minerals provided you know what went in your smoothie. For my everyday smoothie, I usually just put together 2-3 fruits, milk or yogurt, and a tablespoon of chia seeds.
Fruit smoothies can also be an easy way to get your daily intake of fiber, which is 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men.I need to include apples in my smoothies soon, though, because apples are known to have the highest concentration of fiber at five to seven grams per serving.
I was able to acquire a new juicer yesterday and I am excited to try out juicing next week. I am as excited to try out juicing as a new guitar nut is excited to try out his new guitar.
I hope I can get a work-out today.
I love the potential for healthy food recipes smoothies hold. I really should attempt to make my own!

That sounds delicious. I haven;t used my chia seeds in smoothies yet, just protein balls, might have to try it now!

I haven’t made smoothies in forever, but I love to juice! I usually juice apples, carrots, beets, and kale. Then I’ll throw whatever else I have in there as well- celery, turnip greens, cucumber, etc.

I have yet to try Chia seeds. I think I’m the only person that hasn’t. I have some bananas I need to chop and freeze now
