Add an abundance of fruits and vegetables in your diet with a press of a button.  Smoothies are a quick, convenient, and delicious way to eat healthy food.  Be mindful of the smoothies you buy while out because those are usually full of additive sugars, which will only stall and reverse your weight loss.  Below I have included some smoothie recipes you can make in your kitchen at home. When you control the food, you control your waist.

Go To Smoothies

The basis for the perfect smoothie is:

  • Liquid (Water, Coconut Water, Almond/Cashew/Coconut Milk or Orange Juice)
  • Fruit/Greens (Banana, Mango, Blueberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, Strawberry, Pineapple; Kale, Spinach, and Collards)

Once you have your liquid and fruits/greens chosen you can super charge your smoothies with chia/flax seeds, protein powder, nut butter, Greek yogurt, and cinnamon. These aren’t necessary, but they add a additional nutritional benefit to your smoothie.
