Smoothies are an excellent way to sneak more greens into your diet. It is not an easy task, to include raw greens in your diet. However in form of smoothies like kale smoothie, blueberry spinach smoothie you can enjoy it. It is a natural way to get nutrients, as well as stay hydrated. There is no specific ingredient to make a smoothie.Just combine the ingredients that you want and blend. However, we should take care while adding fruits to the raw smoothies so that they balance the greens.
Kale is a super food,much in season these days.It grows well in cooler climates.You can call it a foreign cousin of our spinach.It is full of antioxidants.It is a powerhouse of vitamins loaded in those leaves. If you do not have time to make chips, kale & lentil salad and or use it in mushroom stir fry. Just blend all the great raw ingredients into a smoothie and Voila!
You get the dose of your nutrients just in a glass and have it on the go!
Benefits of oats
Make time for a quick breakfast before an early meeting and avoid eating those antacids, for curing acidity due to late breakfast. 5 minutes breakfast and yet a healthy, perfect start of the day for a hot summer morning. Good food recipes are made of these!!
This way of having oats is great for a no-cook meal. Whether you like to have it as overnight oats or as an addition to vegan chia pudding. Oats are great for breakfast. They help avoid constipation and acidity. Also, help in weight-loss. I love to add oats to normal whole wheat flour while making roti. There is no change in taste and oats adds to nutrient profile. You can also add oats and all purpose flour during baking too.
