Fruits and Greens

About Fruits

As you might already know, fruits are very good for elimination, and they're alkalizing as well. Eating fruit promotes steady blood sugar levels, and reduces cravings for sweets after meals.Fruit consists mostly of water, just like the human body. Fruit is also very satiating because it raises blood sugar and reduces appetite.Bananas and plantains are fleshy fruits that add potassium, fiber and vitamin C. Combine bananas and berries for a delicious, nutrition-packed smoothie. A banana smoothie is a great way to replace potassium that you lose after exercising.Stone fruits such as peaches, nectarines, plums, mangoes and cherries add a thick texture and antioxidants to your smoothies. These fruits are also rich in vitamin C, vitamin A and potassium.Pineapple, oranges, lemons and limes are refreshing, nutritious citrus fruits that add vitamin C, potassium and folate to your diet. Adding these fruits to your smoothie boosts your energy and replenishes your daily need for vitamin C.Strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, raspberries and kiwi are excellent sources of antioxidants that help fight the signs of aging and cardiovascular disease. Blueberries and strawberries contain the most antioxidants of any fresh berries and may help reduce the build up of cholesterol in the arteries, according to registered dietitian Sally Barclay of Iowa State University. Berries also provide fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium and magnesium. Varying the fruits you add to smoothies ensures that your diet is rich in all the necessary vitamins and minerals.

Not to mention they're excellent for overall health because of having such a high vitamin content. You can also add fresh greens to your fruit smoothies (such as Romaine lettuce, celery, kale, or parsley) for a healthy, blood sugar-balancing smoothie. 

About Greens

Greens are extremly important for health! Green leafy vegetables are powerful and have the highest percentage of minerals per calorie of any class of foods. Dark greens and cruciferous vegetables, such as kale, collards, cabbage, and broccoli are very nutritious (rich in protein and minerals), but can be harder to digest, for some people, if you just start eating a lot of them all at once. One thing you can do is to try shredding them finely and massaging them with a little sea salt, olive oil and lemon juice to soften them. This will not only help in digestion, but it's also a great way to get a "cooked"-feeling meal because of the softness the kale or cabbage takes on after doing that.

Spinach, Swiss chard, kale and green peppers blended in a smoothie are an appetizing way to add greens to your diet. Green vegetables provide the nutrients vitamin K, iron, vitamin C and calcium to your daily diet. Combine the greens with a sweet fruit to enhance the flavor, making it easier to get your family to eat their greens.
