Many people get discouraged drinking green smoothies, even if they know that it is very good their health, simply because they feel it’s very complicated to prepare. Truth of the matter is, it’s really very easy to do. Making green smoothies don’t entail so much fuss because the recipes are actually very simple.
Basically, a green smoothie recipe needs fruits and greens and involves the following process:
- Put fruits and / or berries into a mixer
- Add greens
- Add 1-2 cups of water (or coconut milk)
- Mix it smooth.
So simple, right?
Now you ask, but how will I know what are the right greens and fruits to use? Greens are any of the leafy vegetables that’s literally green-colored and easily available in groceries and supermarkets. The green in the leaves contain chlorophyll which is very similar to human blood molecules. As Dr. Ann Wigmore used to say, “Consuming chlorophyll is like receiving a healthy blood transfusion”.
What about fruits? Any edible fruit that suits your taste can be used to add nutrition and flavor to your drink. Some fruits such as banana and mango give a creamier texture to the drink.
If you’re worried about the exact quantity of each mixture, fret no more because the exact amount of each fruit and each green is not as important. It is more important to take note of the proportion of the greens to fruit and the variety of ingredients. For starters, putting in extra fruit may help to make the smoothies a little sweeter or you may choose to add a bit of honey to suit your taste buds.
My tip of the day for Green Smoothie lovers:
I usually have 1-2 pitchers standing in the refrigerator waiting for the next family member come around.
To make things fast and easy I leave a spoon to stir, ready available inside the pitcher, under the lid.
Then it is easy to grab a glass and pour it right in och by the refrigerator without having to walk back and forth in the kitchen.
Small efficient routines like this increases the amount of green smoothies you will drink, and it will increase your health and weight loss.
Do you know that there is actually a health benefit in chewing our food properly just like what we were always told when we were still small children?
For the proper digestion of proteins and other vitamins and minerals in the food we eat, we have to break them down to 1-2 mm sizes. But how time consuming can that be!
Great news is – this time-consuming chewing can be achieved by other means. It’s called a blender! It takes less than 5 minutes to make a pitcher of green smoothie.
Green smoothies are able to release the amino acids from the greens or veggies we eat because of the blending.
Also, incompletely digested protein fragments may be absorbed into the bloodstream. The absorption of these large molecules contributes to the development of food allergies and immunological disorders

Emma Watson recently delivered a well-received and inspiring speech at the United Nations calling for gender equality around the world. The speech given at the U.N. headquarters in New York this weekend was to launch the “HeForShe” campaign which aims to gather at least one billion men and boys as advocates for ending the inequalities that women and girls face globally. She also stressed that the “HeForShe” campaign aims to bring both genders together and not promote a women versus men stand which sort of creates a man-hater mentality which is the common misconception about ‘feminism’.
As Hermione in the very popular ‘Harry Potter’ movie series, she simply waves her wand to create magic to make things better. Hopefully, in real life she gets as close to doing that through her widespread influence on young minds to care and do something about this issue. Ms Watson was recently named U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador.
Some articles make you simply agree, others leave you thinking and reflecting. This article is one of the.latter Many people say money is the root of evil but it’s not having money ithat necessarily makes one unhappy, in the same way that getting rid of fever doesn’t guarantee healing since fever is a symptom of an underlying disease. Happiness is a choice, a state of mind, and it only comes to happen when you make it your choice regardless of the circumstances you find yourself in.
A fever is a symptom. There’s an underlying disease that causes it. Giving you a fever (sitting in a sauna) doesn’t make you sick, and getting rid of the fever (in a cold bath, for example) doesn’t always get rid of the illness.
The New York Times bestseller list used to be a symptom, the symptom that a book was really popular. Now, it’s so easy to game and fake that some people have confused themselves into thinking that being on the list can …

Do you see a magnificent house or endless work in this picture?
This is one article we can certainly get important points from. The writer takes on the book “How Successful People Think” by John C. Maxwell. The writer cites many lessons we can definitely learn from these people. But, interestingly, they share one common thing and that is, they think differently from everyone else.
When you’re strategic, you reduce your margin of error. Simply having vague ideas of where you are and what you want to accomplish will get you no where. The keys to being strategic: 1. break the issue down, 2. ask why the …
