Green smoothies are becoming more common in the ‘healthy eating’ world than before. But then, a good number of people will still not go for it. Some say it looks like algae, others say it will feel like they are drinking spirogyra. And they haven’t even tried it oh.
But come to think of it, if you are given shit to eat to treat a particular painful ailment, watery shit oh, wont you eat it and be well?
The benefits of green smoothies are numerous but i will mention just a few:
- nutrient in vegetables are extracted and easily digestible
- natural weight loss aid
- Antioxidant properties
- makes poo’ing a stress free activity
- skin glow
- easy to prepare
- you can make it how you want
See eh, staying healthy is not rocket science. And it is not expensive either. If you think it is, then you need to change your market.
If you are in 9ja, don’t be looking for kale and collard greens, use your ugu, efo, garden egg leaves and spinach. if you are in obodo oyibo (white man land), don’t go searching for ugu leaves. Use what is accessible and affordable. its not difficult at all. The question is, have you tried?
Make green smoothie a regular in your diet then come and thank me latter.
*** if you are a sweet tooth, like myself, always include a sweet fruit in your green smoothie, so you don’t get turned off.
