The Magic of Fruit Smoothies with Greens!
If you do nothing else…. then start your day with a green smoothie. This is the best way to get your daily serving of fruit and greens.. as in fresh greens. They are blended with the fruit so that they are pulverised more than you would if you where to chew them, therefor making all of the nutrients available to be digested and utilised. This creates a perfect environment for uptake into the cells… giving you more energy, nutrition and helps to stop cravings for … lets call it … more undesirable food choices.. you may even find that you start to crave healthy fruits, vegies and especially salads.
So start today. Have a green smoothie every morning for 30 days and see how you feel. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
Discovery of the Green Smoothie
Victoria Boutenko is a real pioneer for the modern day raw food diet. She and her family consisting of her husband, son and daughter have been raw since 1994. The four of them embarked on a raw food diet when they all became seriously ill.
Going raw healed all of their health problems.
Having been on raw foods for so many years they have acquired invaluable experience in living the raw lifestyle. Nothing is taken at face value and if they feel it is not working they will find out ‘why not’. They are constantly doing research and updating their knowledge of raw foods and how they affect our health and wellbeing.
It was whilst at a cross roads that Victoria discovered the secret to ‘Green Smoothies’ which she has shared with the world through her many talks and her book ‘Green for life’.
I too have discovered the Magic of Green Smoothies! There is something about them that just miraculously seems to lead you into a much healthier, cleaner diet with the advantage of more energy, better digestion as hydrochloric acid levels return to normal, mental clarity, reduced cravings for the wrong types of food and increased craving for clean healthy food….. and the list goes on.
