Green smoothies have been so popular !!! I realised that more people consuming smoothies every day or at least several times a week. Since i started using tube on daily basis this month I can see so many people on the tube sipping their yummy smoothies and to be honest most of them are green smoothies.
So why green smoothies are good for you ?
1. Green smoothies are rich in immune boosting nutrients: witamins A and C, as well as protein, fiber and calcium, they also help clear out toxins from your body
2. They are very easy to digest
3. Green veggies are full of chlorophyll ( pigment found in all leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, celery and lettuce) which has incredible energising, alkalinising, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying benefits.
4. For those who are gluten-free or soy-free or nut free. Green smoothies are a great way to incorporate many healthful ingredients to YOUR dietary needs and preferences.
