Try These Smoothies To Boost Your Nutrition
Smoothies are a delicious and easy way to increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. Many fruits such as blueberries and raspberries are loaded with fiber and antioxidants, are good for digestive health, and boost your immune system. Also, adding avocado and flax will ensure you get healthy fats in your diet that can help reduce cholesterol. It's a great option for a meal replacement if you are on the go and don't have time to cook. Many people use them for pre-workout or post workout meals as a quick and easy way to replenish carbohydrates and fluids.

So pull out your blender and get ready to try some delicious new smoothies. Experiment with different ingredients to find your favorite options. Start with a trip to the grocery store for a good variety of fruits and vegetable for your smoothie ingredients. Purchase organic produce whenever possible and try buying frozen fruit or freezing your own to use instead of crushed ice in your smoothies.
