With nutrition being an essential component of our fitness success and overall wellbeing, it is crucial that we eat a staple diet. An issue that affects many kids, much to the despair of their parents, is eating the good stuff, most notably vegetables. However, it has become apparent to me while discussing nutrition plans with my adult clients that sometimes us grown-ups also struggle to consume enough of the “boring” stuff. Well suffer no more, for I have a simple one-worded solution for you: BLENDER.
Gather up all that crap that you can’t stand which happens to be really darned good for you, such as broccoli, spinach, asparagus, kale, etc. and toss it all in a blender. Mix with water, juice, milk, yogurt – something healthy that takes your fancy. And voila, you can acquire all the daily nutrients your body needs in a drink. What’s more, you can get creative by adding extra healthy ingredients, such as fruit and nuts, to cleverly disguise any hint of a rancid flavor, and which can actually make for a very pleasant tasting and rich textured beverage.
So seriously folks, there’s no excuse. Throw all your greens in a blender and get them down you. Bottoms up!
