The Health & Longevity Newsletter features information about nutrition and health-related topics that you won't get in the mainstream media. I'm always on the lookout for information that not only is interesting, but will be of the most benefit to you, the reader.
Happy New Year!
I want to send you the best wishes during this holiday season, and the best of health for this coming year. The goal of my website is to provide you with resources that will make a significant contribution towards that end.
Throughout this coming year, I'll continue to search for nutritional news that matters — and health tips that are easy to implement and will make a difference in your health. My website continues to grow, and I think you'll enjoy this month's additions.
It's New Year's!
You All Know What that Means!
It's the time of the year where everybody (well, almost everybody) makes a resolution about improving their health. It could be about losing a few pounds, starting a new exercise program or a healthier diet.
Recently, I discovered the benefits of healthy smoothies, and began to use them to get more nutrition into my breakfast routine. I know how much better I feel if I have something healthy for breakfast — and smoothies turned out to be answer!
I know all the reasons for skimping on a healthy breakfast — I've used them all myself!
- Preparing healthy food is time consuming. Who has the time?
- I'm too busy to be going to the grocery store every day.
- Healthy food is expensive, and not always easy to find.
- I don't like fruits and vegetables.
- Eating healthy is complicated, and I'm not much of a cook.
The beauty of healthy smoothies is that they handle all these objections with ease.
I can show you how a healthy smoothie is not only the most nutritious breakfast you can make, they 're also one of the quickest and easiest ones you can make, as well! You won't have to run to the market every day to buy ingredients, or spend a fortune, either.
Health Benefits of Smoothies
Once you make healthy smoothies a regular routine, you'll notice many great benefits:
- more energy
- less body aches and pains
- better sleep
- normal blood sugar
- clearer thinking
- better vision
- better digestion
- regular bowel movements
- smoother skin and healthier hair
- fewer colds and flus
- easier weight loss
- fewer cravings for sweets and processed food
Where do these benefits come from?
Healthy smoothies are loaded with phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes that come in a whole-food form. When fruits and vegetables get blended, the blender will break up the plant fibers, literally doing most of the “chewing” of the foods for you. And chewing food more thoroughly means that you'll absorb more of the nutrients.
Healthy smoothies help detoxify your system.
Smoothies retain the fiber from the fruits and the vegetables you use. The fiber works to improve digestion and helps your body naturally rid itself of toxins. Fiber also helps you feel full so you go to work or school feeling satisfied, and stay that way longer.
And Maybe the Most Important Benefit of All!
Anyone can use a blender and make a healthy smoothie that tastes awesome.
Even the most culinary-challenged individual can dump smoothie ingredients into a blender and make a great tasting smoothie — even kids! There are so many possibilities with smoothies that you're bound to find a combination that pleases you. The trick is to know which ingredients will make your smoothie a healthy one — and which ingredients you want to avoid.
Making your own smoothies at home also guarantees that you'll only get the ingredients you want in your smoothies. Many commercial juice bars add sugar, high fructose corn syrup, food coloring, even msg and other hidden additives to their smoothie products. You'll save lots of money making your own smoothies at home, also.
