SMOOTHIES- Liquid food!

24 Apr 2013 Comments 0

My best way to start every morning is with a SUPERFOODSmoothie!

 

I make it for 3 people in my handy helpful blender, have aglass at home and take the rest with me in my FLOW Bottle, perfect to keep me going til the next meal.

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some of my favourite recipes, as well as a bit about SUPERFOODS....

 

 

What are Superfoods?

 

Foods that appear to offer additional health benefits beyond simple nutrition. There really isn’t one standard definition for superfoods, but they usually are some combination of the following:

- Low in calories.

- Contain substantial amounts of omega-3 fatty acids or monounsaturated fatty acids.

- High in fiber.

- Contain phytochemicals that have been found to have the potential to prevent disease in laboratory or clinical research.

- Rich in vitamins and minerals.

- Low in unhealthy substances such as saturated fats, trans-fats or refined sugars.
