Addicted to smoothies
I must confess that I got addicted to smoothies. I blend myself a fresh smoothie every day and I’m so grateful for being able to do it; these smoothies helped me so much with transforming my way of eating towards vegetarian plant-based. Now, after more than 1 years of drinking daily smoothies, I can safely say that I wouldn’t go back to the way things were before.
Why do I like smoothies, you may ask? Well .. I like smoothies because they have taught me to really appreciate plants. That’s when I got to really know what celery, fennel, avocado or red beets are all about. That was when I started to believe that plants can help me heal my body. It’s funny, but it was only when I started to combine all these plants together, that was when I started to discover what makes each of them special in terms of taste but also in terms of nutrients and health benefits.
I also like smoothies because they are a great excuse to consume raw plants that come with real vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients and healthy fiber. Making my own smoothies helped me so much transforming my gut health in a positive way, and I wouldn’t even consider getting back to eating “that kind of food” that I was eating before.
In fact, smoothies can be so powerful that you’ll start thinking twice about eating anything that it’s not up to the standards of your smoothie. All of a sudden your cravings will simply disappear because few things can ever compare to the taste and the energy boost that a real smoothie will give you. Junk food, fast food, sugar, sugary treats, cake, chocolate bars, etc all of these won’t matter anymore because they can’t compare with the positive boost of energy that you will get from a real smoothie.
