Need More Energy with Fewer Cravings?
Looking for a morning pick-me-up? Try a green smoothie! Skip the coffee and make a smoothie instead and you’ll enjoy more energy, fewer food cravings, mental clarity, weight loss, and other great benefits.
Benefits of Green Smoothies
Why do green smoothies offer such a great morning boost? Veggies, particularly those green leafy ones, are packed with fiber. Fiber is essential for losing weight and maintaining weight loss, since it helps control hunger by making you feel full. Green leafy veggies are also packed with essential nutrients that fuel your body, providing energy and improving overall health.
Skip the Heavy Breakfast
A heavy breakfast of pancakes, eggs, hash browns, and bacon definitely sounds great. But for most people, this isn’t a great way to begin your day, unless you’re out working a farm by hand. Many people make the mistake of eating carbs and heavy fats for breakfast. However, a better choice is protein, veggies, and fruits. Choose a healthy breakfast at home and you’ll also save time and money by skipping the drive thru on the way to work.
Energizing Ingredients for Your Smoothie
Obviously, you’ll want to start with leafy greens, the base of your smoothie, which are packed with B vitamins, magnesium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin K, and vitamin C. Other great ingredients for an energy boost include:
- Bananas – Bananas are packed with B vitamins and potassium, and they’ll fuel your body and keep you energized.
- Nuts – The magnesium in nuts give you a pick-me-up that can be a great substitute for coffee.
- Citrus Fruits – Packed with vitamin C, citrus fruits like limes, lemons, clementines, or oranges make a great addition to your green smoothie.
- Berries – Berries contain vitamin C and plenty of fiber, giving you a natural boost of energy.
When you make your green smoothie, you want to choose ingredients that are going to give you a natural boost of energy so you feel supercharged all day.
