The smoothies we serve at FRESH Cafe are a blend of fruits, and/or vegetables. Optional fortifiers boost their nutrition. These are added and pureed in a high powered blender to a super delicious consistency.
Walk down any busy street, and you’re bound to see a few people drinking a smoothie. You’ve probably wondered, are smoothies for me? Will they really benefit my life?
Not only will adding smoothies to diet improve your health, but it actually makes you feel great too! Here’s 8 reasons why smoothies will make you awesome:
- It will make you happier. A recent study in Australia showed that there was an increase in life satisfaction with every extra portion of fruit and vegetable added to a diet. The benefits increased up to 8 portions of fruits and vegetables.
- It will boost your immune system. The world health organization (WHO), recommends a minimum of 400g of fruits and vegetables a day. This is to prevent communicable diseases, as well as prevent and alleviate micronutrient deficiencies. 400g equals about 5 servings per day. Countries like France recommend at least 10 servings of fruits and vegetables. Their health care system ranks number 1 in the world!
- It’s high in nutrients. FRESH smoothies are made with a variety of fruits and/or vegetables from all over the world. Each is chosen for their unique health benefits. Not only are they full of vitamins, minerals, and micro nutrients, but also super antioxidants.
- It’s fast. Ever try eating a cup of berries in a car? If so, you’ll understand why smoothies are a great choice when you’re on the go. With smoothies, you won’t need to worry about an apple rolling away. Or similarly, having to find that banana getting on your clothes.
It gives you energy.
Smoothies are unlike the energy you get from caffeine or sugary beverages. You won’t experience the huge spikes and drops from natural fruit and vegetable energy. You’ll find that the energy obtained by smoothies last longer. Together with added fortifiers like protein or flaxseed, you feel full and the energy is more sustained.
- It’s easy to digest. To sit and consume the number and portions of fruits and vegetables in a FRESH smoothie would be daunting. But when it’s deliciously blended in a smoothie, you still get all of the fiber, nutrients, and health benefits,
- It’ll keep things moving. Having a healthy colon can make you feel lighter. Poor diets result in gas, bloating, and issues in the bathroom. Smoothies provide all the necessary ingredients, like water and fiber to keep things moving, which will make you feel great.
- It will optimize absorption. Most people don’t chew their food sufficiently to maximize absorption in the digestive process. As smoothies are blended to a smooth consistency, the food products are ready for digestion, which allows for maximum absorption of all the vital nutrients.
FRESH Pure Smoothies are a delicious way to feel awesome, every day.
