Smoothies, Blended Salads and Juices


Be sure to include green smoothies and blended salads in your diet on a regular basis. Green smoothies and blended salads are similar, but blended salads generally contain higher amounts of raw, leafy greens and other vegetables to create a smooth, drinkable “salad.” Both are great choices because a blender efficiently crushes the plant cell walls, making more beneficial phytochemicals available and optimizing nutrient absorption. For a delicious, easy and portable breakfast option, blend up some leafy greens, your favorite fresh or frozen fruit, seeds, and maybe even some cocoa powder. Juicing can be useful as a supplemental method of increasing nutrient intake, but because fiber and other healthful components of the plant are lost, consuming smoothies and blended salads is preferable.
