If anyone needs a boost, I strongly suggest adding green smoothies into your life if you haven't already. I started drinking green smoothies about 5 days ago and I am already seeing huge changes over all.
The problem with me is that I am not a huge veggie lover, so I've probably had more veggies in the last 5 days than I've had in the last 5 YEARS.
I make my smoothies with less fruit because I have PCOS and most likely insulin resistant.. I don't do sugar well, not even fruit.
I load my regular blender up with 2 huge handfuls of spinach, 1 handful of Kale, chopped carrot, quarter of an avocado, berries, small bit of banana, strawberries, etc I also freeze the fruit so the shake is nice and cold. I also add flax seed, hemp seeds and dulse.. but I interchange stuff. My smoothies differ day to day so far.
AND IT TASTES WONDERFUL! Even with less fruit (you can add more) you don't taste the veggies AT ALL.. it just tastes amazing and healthy.
I blend for a few minutes until it's smooth, and I make about a quart! I found that adding the avocado made a huge difference in suppressing hunger.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that I no longer have insomnia at night, I find myself going to bed when I should and waking up with energy. My skin is glowing already.
Also, I only seem to want to eat healthy stuff now. It's like my body has started craving more and more of the good stuff.
So I just wanted to share. I wish I knew about these earlier.. For once all the veggies in my fridge are being used. Heck, I threw a whole zuchini in my smoothie yesterday! I am eating pounds of veggies everyday.
Hope this encourages someone to try!
