Why you should make smoothies

If you live in a rich society you are probably experiencing the same daily rush as I am.

You know the “get up, exercise/do yoga/do meditation (or a combo of the 3), work, eat properly, read and go to bed” ?

How the hell in all of this are we supposed to find time to do a good grocery shopping, cook properly and take time to actually sit and enjoy our meals ?

Since I left Europe the amount of time I spend eating has significantly reduced. I usually have my lunch in 15 minutes, 30 minutes for dinner when I am lucky.

I know it’s terrible for the digestion and I should take time to eat more consciously but…hey ! I eat healthy first, let’s take this thing step by step. 

I am always looking for ways to improve my meal prep and make my life easier. Preparing a smoothie has come to one of the best options. I usually prepare a mix of several fruits, or fruits and vegetables and for after my training, I love my combo banana-protein powder.

7 reasons to make smoothies more often:

  1. The most obvious one: it taste good
  2. It helps you keep regular meals during the day with a busy schedule
  3. It allows to increase the intake of fruits and vegetables (generally we don’t have enough)
  4. It boost your protein intake (which also tend to lack of quantity and/or quality)
  5. It helps fight the cravings
  6. It boost your metabolism
  7. Depending on your ingredients it keeps you awake in the morning or help you to sleep

Let’s be honest here: my smoothies never look as good as the one in this picture. I don’t take time to make them pretty for pictures. My goal is to prepare smoothies that are tasteful and with a big amount of nutrients. If it’s pretty, it’s a bonus.
