I HATE VEGETABLES!
If you’re like me, I’m not a big fan of eating vegetables. I’ll eat them, but there are days where I just don’t have a taste for them. That’s why you’ll see me posting tons of smoothie and juice recipes because that’s how I get in my vegetables. Dark leafy vegetables are the best and have the most antioxidants in them with Vitamins A, B, C, E and K.
When having a fresh juice or smoothie, it’s best to use a 3:1 ratio with vegetables being the most. If you are new to this concept, you can start off with a higher ratio of fruit to greens and gradually increase the greens and decrease the fruit as you become used to the taste. Its the perfect way of getting more green vegetables into your diet if you hate them.
Blended fruit and vegetables are considered to have less of an impact on blood sugar because they contain fiber which slows the release of natural sugars into the blood stream. Juicing is best if you have delicate digestion or low in nutrients. In order to retain their freshness, you should always drink them as fresh as possible.
Here is one of my favorite recipes:
Now, would you eat that many vegetables in a day? Green smoothies taste so good, make your skin glow and give you so much energy. The biggest complaint I hear is “I have no energy”. Start out with one green smoothie a day and let me know how you feel after just 3 days. Check out my free resources page!
