Benefits of Drinking This Morning Smoothie
Smoothies, in general, have a wide range of benefits. It doesn’t take a scientist to tell you that any combination of fruit and vegetable is good for your health. Smoothies are well-known for being great at boosting energy. They are often recommended as a snack which makes them the perfect way to start your day.
Smoothies can be low calorie depending on what you add to them. A 12-ounce glass of the morning smoothie made above can have anywhere between 100 – 200 calories. What’s going to majorly affect the calorie content of your smoothie is the type of milk you use. Obviously, full-cream, whole milk has more calories per volume than 2% low-fat skim milk.
Smoothies are famous for also aiding in weight loss. This is especially true of smoothies that involve a lot of vegetables. In our breakfast smoothie we have only included broccoli. However this has already set us on the right path. Taken in combination with a well-balanced diet and an active lifestyle, this smoothie can go a long way in helping you fight off the bulge naturally.
To top it all off, drinking a smoothie such as the one outlined above sets you on the right foot every morning because smoothies are known to increase mental clarity and focus. Imagine not only having more energy every morning, but also being able to clearly outline what you need to get done in your day and how to go about doing it so you achieve the best results.
If all it takes to have all these benefits is drinking a smoothie, then don’t let another day pass without making your mind up to start your days on the right food with a delicious morning smoothie.
