Green Smoothie - delicious & healthy

Live your life green

Green smooties consist of a green basis, 1-3 different kinds of fruist, a super food (optionally) and some liquid. You have many options to combine the stuff, we will show you some recipes at the end of the text. But beforehand, we'll tell you wha the green smoothie makes soooo healthy.

The green foundation is rich in vitamins, essential amino acids, antioxidants & minerals, which are good for the acid-base balance and strengthen the immune system. This type of smoothie is rich in fiber and curbs the appetite, so they are great to lose some fat. Furthermore, the leafy vegetables in the green smoothie contains much chlorophyll  ... Chlorophyll is effective against toxins in our body, promotes rapid healing & acts against inflammation and has an neutralizing effect for bad breath and body odor.

Of course, you could say, "I eat a lot of vegetables and salad." BUT here we often do not take the really good stuff from the leafy vegetables, since we chew rarely sufficient. In the mixer, the cell structure breaks up and can be easily taken up by our organism. Another advantage of mixology is that we can take larger amounts and we will spare our stomach-intestinal tract some work, because the cellulose is already broken and can be digested immediately.

Unfortunately, the green ingredients taste often tart & bitter, which makes them not very attractive ...
We provide remedy this by mixing fresh fruits with the "green stuff", which gives the smoothie a delicious & fresh sweetness. 
At the end you have a smoothie that saturates long & supplies your body with all the essential nutrients. In addition, food cravings are less if you regulary consume green smoothies.

The basic recipe

  1. The green basise.g. Lettuce / spinach / kale / cucumber
  2. 1-3 different fruitse.g. Pineapple / banana / apple / mango
  3. Super Foods (optional)e.g. Ginger / matcha / Goji / chia / Cranberries
  4. liquide.g. Water / coconut water / almond milk / Green Tea

Sample Recipe 1

- 1 handful of spinach
- 1 mango
- 2 tablespoons of chia seeds (optional)
- 3-5 mint leaves
- 200 ml of water / coconut water
- A few ice cubes (optional)

Put all ingredients in blender & mix all the ingredients until you get a fine mass.
If the smoothie is not liquid enoughadd a little more water.

Sample Recipe 2

- 2 apples
- 2 bananas
- 1 handful of kale
- 1/2 cucumber
- 200 ml of water

Put all ingredients in blender & mix all the ingredients until you get a fine mass.
If the smoothie is not liquid enoughadd a little more water.

The green basis & the fruist should have about the same amount, while the super-food only
an additive is to liquefy the whole thing, add so much liquid until the smoothie is drinkable.

On Instagram you will also find a new 7-day challenge again, which I presented there yesterday, if you are interested, please have a look at my account @ fit_strong_fabulous :) Also, all non-instagram-usern we would like to present the challenge, so I'll tell you briefly what it is about:

Start: 5th may 2014
Instructions: There are 4 points that should be followed as consistently as possible.
1. drink 2 smoothies every day, 1 of them must be a green one.
2. Drink min. 2 liters of water (as little carbonic acid) and / or green tea
3. Attempts to get 8 hours sleep on 3 of 7 days
4. Write down a thing, which is especially great on you or something that you did particularly well that day
End: 12th may 2014

IMPORTANT: You still eat quite normal & as healthy as possible. You could replace only the breakfast with a large Green Smoothie.
If you join in on Instagram, please use this # fitstrongfabulous_feelgood

Why are we doing this? Because we constantly hear things like "I don't like to eat fruits" and "I can't drink so much" or right now in front of the summer, "I'm not fit enough" or "I'm too fat" etc. So we want to show you that some things can be integrated quickly and easily into everyday life & yet to be a boon for our body.
