Green Smoothie For Weight Loss! (Best 7 Base Food)

GREEN SMOOTHIES

What are green smoothies?

The main ingredients of green smoothies are vegetables (mainly green leafy vegetables), fruit, and water or other liquid. You can add greens, wild herbs, seeds, nuts, or other ingredients as you wish.

When you fully follow this article, you will find out why I have named this article, “Green Smoothie For Weight Loss”.

As far as the composition is concerned, a ratio of approx 60% vegetables to approx 40% fruit would ideally be best. But since you have to get used to the rather bitter taste of green vegetables at the beginning, you can start with exactly the opposite ratio.

In this article, you will find a high proportion of vegetables, as well as those where the proportion of fruit predominates. After an initial phase of getting used to it, however, you should mainly use recipes with a high proportion of vegetables.

Fruit contains a lot of fructose and therefore the consumption of both recipes with large amounts is not recommended. Green smoothies contain a wealth of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and trace elements.

Another advantage is that by chopping up the ingredients, more nutrients are released than would be possible by simply chewing them. In this way, our organism simply absorbs more nutrients. The World Health Organization recommends eating 5 servings of fruit and vegetables daily.

With one green smoothie a day, you’ve got a lot of that covered.

Benefits of green smoothies

Consuming these mixed drinks generally leads to better digestion. The entire digestive system starts to work more efficiently, which means that food is digested faster and better. Because our detoxification organs (liver, bile, kidneys, intestines) also work more efficiently, the toxins that we absorb through food are eliminated more effectively and faster.

This not only leads to better general well-being, but also to a strengthening of the immune system. Other effects of green smoothies are also not to be ignored. The bowel movement improves, the cholesterol level is reduced and the formation of the kidney is counteracted.

All of this leads to long-term detoxification of the body and a permanently better state of health. and gallstones The green mixed drinks can also be used excellently in a weight loss diet. It is enough to replace a main meal with a green smoothie.

In this case, preference should be given to recipes in which the proportion of vegetables is particularly high and where only water is used, like this, unlike all other liquids, has zero calories. Green smoothies are also particularly suitable for a detox cure. Poor diet and excessive stress put a lot of strain on our internal organs and weaken their ability to eliminate toxins from our body, which can lead to various diseases.

With a detoxification treatment based on green smoothies, the cleansing organs (liver, kidneys, etc.) are supported in their work, which leads to increased elimination of toxins from our organism.

Smoothie blender

The right blender

There is an enormous number of mixers on the market so that the consumer is spoiled for choice. The price range goes from 30 to 600+ Dollars/Euros and more.

So which device should you choose?

As always, the right tool is of great importance if you want to achieve good results. Of course, this also applies to the preparation of the green mixed drinks. If you think you can make great-tasting smoothies with a cheap machine, you’re in for a real disappointment.

This is not to say that you should buy a super professional device for 600+ Dollars/Euros or more. Unless you want to make 50 or more smoothies a day. Nowadays you can already find good devices in the price category of 150-200 Dollars/Euros for normal household use.

Without wanting to give any recommendations for one or the other brand, I would like to point out the most important properties that you should pay attention to when buying. First, there is performance. This is one of the most important criteria when buying a good mixer.

Cheap devices usually have outputs of 400-500 watts or just above. But that doesn’t get you very far. Such feats are not enough to break down the fibers of the vegetable well enough, and the result is drinking full of lumps instead of smoothies with a creamy consistency.

In addition, with low power, the engine is overloaded, quickly overheats, and can give up the ghost in a relatively short time. Therefore, the minimum power should be 1,000 watts, or better a little higher (1,200-1,500).

Another important criterion is speed. This should be at least 25,000 revolutions per minute(RPM).

Then there is the weight, the volume, and the material of the container, such as the different power levels and functions. In order to be able to work well, a good device should also be stable, not too light it should weigh at least 3 kg.

The container should be either glass or Tritan (a BPA-free plastic) and have a volume of at least 1.5 liters. The power levels should be at least 3, and the device should have a pulse function (the ability to immediately bring the mixer to maximum power at the touch of a button) and an ice crush function (the ability to process ice cubes). Most devices nowadays also have a smoothie function, which is of course very practical.

The most important properties are listed again below:

Power: 1,000-1,500 watts
Speed: At least 25,000 rpm.
Weight: 3-6 kg.
Performance levels: 3-5
Pulse Function: YES
Ice crusher: YES
Smoothie function: YES
The volume of the container: 1.5-2 liters
Material of the container: Glass or Tritan


For example, I will recommend the following blender which you can be sure for at least 5+ years of enjoying from it in your kitchen:

Making Smoothie

How is a green smoothie prepared?

The preparation process is relatively simple and can be completed in just a few steps.

1. Wash the vegetables, chop them coarsely, and put them in the blender first.

2. Then wash the fruit, deseed, chop and add to the blender along with any other ingredients. The skin should only be removed from fruits where it is inedible (such as oranges, bananas, kiwis, etc.).

3. Now add some liquid and mix for about 15 seconds

4. At the end add the remaining liquid until the desired smoothness is reached and mix for another 5-10 seconds.

The consistency of a smoothie is very individual and depends on your own taste. It is therefore advisable not to add too much liquid to the blender immediately.

A smoothie that is too firm can easily be made more liquid, but it is more complicated the other way around. The procedure described above is always the same. It, therefore, seemed unnecessary to me to repeat the procedure for each individual recipe. It would only have increased the number of pages in this book without showing any concrete benefit for the reader.

Try to use ripe fruit whenever possible. It is sweeter than unripe and therefore better suited to balance the somewhat bitter taste of green vegetables. In addition, unripe fruit is also harder to digest. benchmarks. Times may vary slightly for some recipes.

    Hi,

    I totally agree with you on your thoughts when reading your article. My question is as follows: Do you have to make the smoothie everyday or for few days every week? – Don’t you think that 40% of fruits is a bit too much considering the fact fruits have fructose?

    Thank you.

      Hey Aubin,

      Thanks for visiting my blog!
      It completely depends on the body’s condition. Some of the people like and do on daily basis, cause they are used to it and got magnificent results. But from the beginning, the taste of herbs can make the person uncomfortable and they gonna quite easily after a couple of days!

      So the Idea about adding fruits besides to have benefits is for changing the taste too.

      I do appreciate for sharing what you think Aubin.
      Sincerely,
      Farzad
