Favorite Green Smoothie
Packed with antioxidants and micronutrients
Welcome to my world! I'm sure it isn't much different than many of yours. Sometimes I only have 5 minutes to get something healthy for me, my wife, and the kids. I want whatever it is I make, to be the most vitamin, mineral, good fat, superfood, protein dense thing that we will all be able to consume.
My green smoothie is a household favorite and super easy to make. There are a ton of variations on this, but here is one that I like, and here is why I like to do it.
1. It's Fast. When you don't have much time and need some nutrients simple and quick blending is great! In my house there isn't a lot of time between soccer practice, hebrew school, and homework.
2. Thick Smoothie can give you satiation and fullness. As you’ll see in the video , I blend my smoothies super thick so I have to eat it with a spoon, which allows the digestive enzymes in my mouth to pre-initiate digestion and make me fuller, faster.
3. Blending doesn’t spike your blood sugar as much as juicing. Fiber is one great way to lower the glycemic index of a food. Juicing eliminates just about every shred of fiber, while blending does not.
5. Get your super foods all in quick and easy. Superfoods aren't always easy to eat with all the preperation needed. Dumping these kind of things into a blended smoothie makes it far easier to deliver tons of nutrients to your body. Watch the video and you'll see my 2 year old chug down Kale, avocado seed, and beet green!
