Losing the baby weight is a challenge for most of us moms, but with a little hard work and dedication, you can definitely pull it off. One great way to watch those pounds start dropping is to incorporate smoothies into your diet.
And I’m not talking about the sugar filled ones you can buy at any old fast food place, I’m talking about good old stripped back fruit and veggie smoothies. Depending on your taste pallet, it may take some getting used to, but adding sweeteners to your smoothies will NOT help your weight loss. Most fruits are sweet enough to compensate for the lack of sugar and overtime, you’ll find that you love the taste of raw fruit without added sugar.
Many moms should consider adding greens like kale, spinach, and wheat grass to their smoothies as they not only provide essential vitamins, but they also help give the smoothies more substance. To make these yummy smoothies happen, you’re going to need a high speed blender; something that can turn regular vegetables and fruits into a delicacy. Think Vita Mix.
Good weight loss smoothies have just the right mix of nourishing produce and essential vitamins. In a world of fast food, raw smoothies that are purely plant based are gaining momentum for their health (and weight loss) benefits. Smoothies make for an easy breakfast or for a post-workout snack. They’re easy to make and easy to transport. All you do is blend!
The key to making good smoothies is all about finding and blending what flavors you enjoy the most. Get creative and mix it up with blends of a banana, mango, orange smoothie. Or a yummy spinach berry smoothie. Have fun figuring out what fruits you enjoy the most.
