We all know how important vegetables are to a well-balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. But if you’re tired of eating salads and have no time to cook, worry not. Instead of eating your vegetables, you can drink them. “But why?” you ask. Here are four good reasons why you should have a vegetable drink every day.
Vegetable shakes help you lose weight.
Obesity is a so-called lifestyle disease that plagues many people all over the world. It often leads to other health problems such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease, and even certain types of cancer. Obesity kills. Thus, doing what you can to avoid unhealthy, unnecessarily fattening foods is a must to stay fit and make sure that you live a long, good life. One way to do this is to start drinking vegetable shakes. These nutritious and delicious drinks are the ideal meal replacement for those who want to shed the pounds. Depending on how you make them, they can also satisfy your sweet tooth without loading up your body with unhealthy fats and sugars.
Vegetable shakes are chockfull of vitamins and minerals.
A daily vegetable shake made with one or more kinds of leafy green vegetables, some fruit to sweeten the drink, a handful of herbs, and superfood supplements such as maca powder, organic vegetable powders, hemp seeds, chia seeds, organic dried carrots, and spirulina contain almost all of your daily needs for most vitamins and minerals. Apart from taking a daily multivitamin, this is one of the simplest ways to make sure that you’re getting all the good stuff your body needs to stay healthy. Just remember to use a variety of fruits and vegetables, rotate your greens, and only use high quality produce and supplements to make your vegetable shake.
Vegetable shakes have a detoxifying effect.
All the good stuff in your daily vegetable shake – the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, micronutrients, and fiber – help eliminate toxins from your body. These toxins include the heavy metals in your drinking water, the pesticides in your produce, and the many harmful chemicals in your food, skin products, and environment. This detoxifying effect enables you to fight the signs of aging, allows your internal organs to function better, and gives your skin and your hair a youthful glow. It is also essential to the treatment of existing medical conditions and to the improvement of your overall health.
Vegetable shakes boost your energy levels.
Drink a vegetable shake made with fresh or dried kale (or other leafy green), some celery stalks, some parsley, an apple, and a handful of mint at breakfast and you won’t need the caffeine jolt you normally get from your morning cup of coffee. Vegetable shakes are energizing and have a positive, uplifting effect on one’s mood without the added calories of a sugary treat such as a chocolate bar or a typical latte. With vegetable shakes, you can skip the added fats and sugars that can lead to illnesses and still have the energy to perform all your tasks for the day.
