Treating your skin with vitamin-infused waters, tonics, shots, juices, smoothies and even cocktails is the new way to cleanse. Instead of dieting or depriving yourself of your favorite foods you can add one of these healthy drink recipes to your diet to make sure you get all the nutrients your body needs. Anna Ottoson, author of the popular green beauty book Healthy Drinks claims “A day without a green smoothie is a day lost.”
The benefits of starting off your day with blended whole fruits and vegetables are invaluable to your health. Smoothies are simple to make and so tasty when you’re using the right combination of ingredients. Supplying your body with essential nutrients first thing in the morning gives you clean energy throughout the day. Unlike caffeine the nutrients from a healthy drink will give you an energy boost with no jitters or midday crash.
“You are what you eat, don’t be fast, cheap, easy and fake,” Anna warns. Healthy drinks loaded with vitamins and minerals can help you lose weight naturally. The reason? Your digestion is improved and midday cravings decrease when you get the right fuel in the morning. Try replacing your typical breakfast with a healthy drink instead. You’ll be amazed at how good your skin looks in just one week.
If the thought of shopping for all the produce you need to make these healthy drink recipes for a week sounds daunting, try a service like Daily Harvest. They deliver all the organic frozen ingredients you need for your healthy treats. Shop their smoothies, bowls, soups, parfaits, overnight oats and even superfood lattes.
