Veg out. When most people think of homemade smoothies and juices, they automatically think of fruits (and with good reason – who doesn’t love a good strawberry and banana smoothie?). However, some of the best nutritious drinks are actually made by blending fresh vegetables – causing a large number of experts to abandon the fruit bowl in favour of the veggie patch.
One such expert is nutritionist and blogger Laura, who recommended juicing vegetables instead of fruit in her recent post on detoxing for spring. According to Laura, using fresh veg in place of your favourite berries and exotic fruits will help to keep your blood sugar levels nice and stable – working wonders for your energy levels.
And Laura’s not the only one. Fellow nutritionist and superfood guru Nadia Brydon has developed a recipe for a smoothie that’s packed full with nutrients. Containing a variety of different vegetables, in addition to the Japanese whole food Sun Chlorella ‘A’ (www.SunChlorella.co.uk), it’s the perfect concoction for helping you to spring into spring.
