Green Smoothies

When I first started drinking green smoothies, I had no idea what I was doing! My goal was to radically improve my health. Over the years, I had been suffering from uterine fibroids, chronic fatigue, anxiety, mood swings, asthma, intestinal problems, sinusitis, foggy thinking, and even depression. I researched the vegan diet and found some green smoothie recipes to follow. Eventually, I learned to create delicious smoothie concoctions myself; however, as I consumed the smoothies, I was surprised at how delicious they tasted, how easy they were to make, and that I did not taste the greens! The best part, however, was noticing how much better I started to feel each day, how I had more energy, how the extra weight came off easily, and how my ailments started to diminish!  Green smoothies were the perfect start to my goal of improving my health. They can help you alter your health as well!

What are Green Smoothies?

Green smoothies are all natural, blended, delicious, cleansing, nourishing, life-giving concoctions of raw fruits and vegetables. They are nutritional powerhouses because they contain all of the nutrients the body needs for optimal functioning. Green smoothies contain protein, minerals, vitamins, fats, and sugars. Fruit and leafy greens as the main ingredients in green smoothies also contain fiber, which aides in the elimination of stored toxins in the bowels and tissues. Consumed as a blended drink, the fiber is broken down and allows for better absorption in the body. The high water content in fruit found in green smoothie recipes naturally hydrates the body. Green leafy vegetables also contain chlorophyll, which is liquefied sun energy. Chlorophyll cleanses all our organs and destroys free radicals, pathogenic bacteria and fungi in our bodies, and has been shown to destroy cancer cells.

Green Smoothies

Those are fantastic advantages, but there are also even more! Here are 10 fabulous benefits of drinking green smoothies:

1. More Energy! A green smoothie a day fills your body with needed vitamins, minerals and nutrients.

2. Weight Loss. Because of the low-calorie and high nutrient value, green smoothies will actually cause you to lose weight.

3. Better Sleep. Drinking green smoothies regulates your body’s systems which will help you sleep better.

4. Disease Elimination. As nutritious healing concoctions, green smoothies are a cure for unhealthy eating habits.

5. Disease Prevention. As nutritional powerhouses, green smoothies help to keep illnesses at bay.

6. Inexpensive to Create. There are many combinations of green smoothies. All you need are a few healthy and organic ingredients, and you are on your way!

7. Unlimited Ingredients. You can make a green smoothie with just about any fruit or vegetable; you are at liberty to experiment for different tastes.

8. Quick and Easy Preparation. Green Smoothies take about 5-7 minutes to create.

9. Quick and Easy Clean up. The blender, cutting board and knife are cleaned in no time!

10. Wonderful Taste! Green smoothies are very tasty, and even though leafy greens are a significant part of any green smoothie, the beauty is you only taste the fruit!

As highly nutritious and delicious drinks, a green smoothie a day, I believe, will keep the doctor away!

A bit about me, Vilma Reynoso, and why I wrote this book:

As a child, I grew up consuming my father’s Argentine barbecues every Sunday. Usually ill with colds as a child, I suffered from chronic sinus problems, asthma and respiratory ailments, and was overweight.  As a young adult, I suffered with horrible PMS, fibroids, chronic fatigue, anxiety, mood swings, asthma, intestinal problems, sinusitis, foggy thinking, and even depression.  After evaluating my health and the deaths of both my parents due to heart disease, I became motivated to change my life, one step at a time. I slowly began to change my diet from meat-based to vegetarian, then to vegan, and finally to a mostly raw vegan diet. Healed from most of my ailments, I have never looked back!
