I think a lot of us feel a little guilty feeling like we’re not consuming enough fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. More often than not, we tend to dine out more or eat fast foods/junk food because our excuse is that we’re simply busy! I know that’s not an excuse and I try to eat healthy when I can. After all, eating healthier would do a lot of good. I don’t want stomach problems like indigestion or constipation, which I’m glad doesn’t come by often as I try to sneak in more fiber in my diet.
|1 x banana|
|2-3 x dates (depending how sweet you like it)|
|5 x walnut|
|One bunch of Kale vegetables|
|1 cup - any choice of milk you prefer|
|A sprinkle of cinnamon|
|4 - 5 pieces of ice cubes|
I’d say the simplest and fastest way to get more fruits and vegetables daily is by making a smoothie or juice. Every now and then I make a delicious, filling and healthy green smoothie. The fun part part is when you get real creative with your fruit/veggie choices, colours and flavours. Bonus is that you don’t have to cook anything too! You can have this the morning when you’re rushing for work or as a pre and post workout drink if you like.
|1.||Firstly, prep all your ingredients by chopping your banana’s into small coins, remove the pits from dates and roughly chop the kale so it’s easier to fit the blender|
|2.||Next, put in your milk into the blender. My choice is soy milk, followed by ice|
|3.||Throw in your sliced banana coins, walnuts, dates and kale into the blender|
|4.||Add a dash into the mix and blend for 30 seconds. Or until there’s no chunks left|
|5.||Pour into a glass and serve!|
