5 Reasons I Am In Love With Smoothies

on March 3, 2013

My husband and I have been doing the smoothie thing consistently now for about two weeks. We are in love! I had tried making my own smoothies a few months ago and loved it, but stopped once my husband returned from deployment. I am happy that we both decided to jump into smoothie making recently and are benefiting from it immensely. Here are the five reasons why we love it so much:

1. It gives us energy. I suffer from Chronic Fatigue. When I come home from work, I want to go to bed and do nothing else. I do not have energy to go to the gym, and until recently getting up in the morning was a chore. Ever since my husband and I started making smoothies, I am up early every day and not just on weekdays. I am still working on getting to the gym and improving my diet even more, but the smoothies are helping me tremendously so that I am not sleeping the day away.

2. It makes us eat our vegetables. My husband hates anything green. He does not eat anything healthy, and refused to until I made him try a smoothie. He now loves it so much, that he insists on making them daily or making enough for the week. The smoothies contain enough fruits to cover the taste of vegetables. I am so happy to have found a fun way to get something green and nutritious into his daily diet.

3. They taste amazing! There are many ways and many recipes for smoothies out there. My husband and I normally make our own with spinach, citrus, berries and bananas. Sometimes we also add vanilla and cinnamon. We then add water and blend away.

4. They are economical. It is not expensive to eat healthy. Mu husband and I have discovered this. We always thought we could not afford buying all those fruits and vegetables. We were wrong! It was cheaper to buy the fruits and vegetables and make the smoothies, than to keep buying snacks that were not healthy for us at all. The smoothies also keeps us full for longer periods of time and we are getting healthier by the day.

5. I am loving my skin. The green smoothies have helped improve my complexion and my skin feels baby soft. I would like to eventually add more healthy items to our diet, as the smoothies thus far have been a hit in my home.

By the way, I am not getting paid to sponsor any products and/or diets. As always, consult your doctor before starting or changing your eating habits.

Happy Reading!!!
