I believe in the Green Smoothie! This is something I discovered through the online food community, particularly through the Raw food blogs. I ALWAYS feel better if I have a green smoothie once a day...I often add my protein powder to one which I know is not raw but my nutrition is focused on being %70 raw currently so this works for me.

The Green Smoothie
There are so many recipes floating on the internet now but the basic ingredient of any smoothie is any fresh raw greens and fruit and the process of making them is as simple as blending them. These recipes insist on raw greens and fruits which are rich in enzymes and biophotons,they are a simple yet great powerhouse of energy,an ideal breakfast food when time is at a premium in the mornings.
The other thumb rule when you opt for a diet of green smoothie recipes is never have what you had the previous day. This is essentially to expose your body and system to various kinds of greens and fruits thus ensuring you get the best nutrients and vitamins in right doses. So always mix them up and blend different raw greens with different fruits everyday,this also means you don’t get to see the same food on your plate everyday. Green smoothie recipes are good and complete food recipes for all ages. They are rich in fiber and fresh fruit sugar which is the best form of natural sugar available.
An ideal smoothie consists of 60% fresh fruits and 40% raw leafy vegetables. This is the optimum combination of sugar and nutrients that your body requires. Green smoothies are easy to digest and the sweet fruits neutralize the bitter taste of raw greens.although be carefull here as too much acidic juices can be bad for the stomach,so a healthy balanced diet is always recommended. They’re also great source of energy for kids and toddlers who burn a lot of energy while playing. They are sure to love the new smoothie that you have prepared and there would be no tears shed over the breakfast table.
Green smoothies are a great choice of food for the fitness conscious. They are low carbohydrate high fiber diet that will keep you glowing throughout the day. Make your own green smoothie recipe and enjoy your way to a healthy life. Remember mix them up, shake them up and there you get your green smoothie recipe!
