The Foundations of a Healthy Diet and the Role of a Healthy Smoothie Mix

The Foundations of a Healthy Diet and the Role of a Healthy Smoothie Mix

Current dietary guidelines recommend that in order to achieve a balanced diet, about "half your plate” should consist of fruits and vegetables. For many, this isn’t an easy task. Time constraints, lack of storage space, and getting your hands on fresh produce are just a few of the things that may explain the absence of fruits and veggies in in the diets of many Americans. Drinking a healthy smoothie mix is a much easier alternative that helps people increase their fruit and vegetable consumption and getting in those essential vitamins and nutrients for a healthy lifestyle.

 

Foundation of a Healthy Diet

 

Along with the important vitamins and minerals, fruits and vegetables as well as healthy smoothie mixes, also pack in disease-fighting phytochemicals (nicknamed "fight-o-chemicals”). In tandem with their high concentrations of vitamins A and C, these compounds play a role in preventing many chronic diseases such as:

  • Cancer;
  • Heart disease;
  • Stroke;
  • Type 2 diabetes;
  • Vision loss

Another advantage of consuming more fruits and vegetables is increased fiber intake. Fiber has many health advantages including promoting healthy digestion, controlling blood pressure, and helping to lower cholesterol.

 

Benefits of Healthy Smoothie Mixes

 

For someone who’s looking to get all the benefits that fruits and vegetables have to offer, but struggles to find a way to get them into their diet, a healthy smoothie mix creates an easy way to get several servings in just one sitting. You just want to make sure you’re using a product made with 100% real fruit juice, like SmartFruit. Packed with nutrient dense ingredients, a smoothie made using SmartFruit contains 3 servings of fruits and veggies, contains no added sugar, no artificial flavors or colors, and no additives or GMOs. Each flavor is enhanced with a unique superfood powerhouse like omega-3, antioxidants or electrolytes.

 

A well balanced smoothie made with real fruits vegetables is one of the best ways of getting more vitamins and minerals into your body. Using a healthy smoothie mix takes the hassle out of the process - just add water and ice then blend for a smoothie with perfect consistency. It’s also cost effective and makes understanding exactly what you’re getting from your smoothie easy. Need more iron? Choose a healthy smoothie mix containing dark green leafy powerhouses like kale and spinach. Want to give your immune system a boost? A healthy smoothie mix with mango has high levels of vitamin C that will ward off all kinds of ailments.

 

The great thing about smoothies is they can be enjoyed at pretty much anytime during the day. A smoothie in the morning can kick-start your day in the right direction. One before or after a workout provides a great supplement for your exercise. Replacing lunch or dinner with a smoothie gives you that same full feeling but also packs in the health benefits of fruits and veggies. A healthy smoothie mix is the simplest, most efficient way to get the most important food groups in an easily digestible format.

Our fast paced lives can make it challenging to eat healthy foods all the time. A healthy smoothie mix gives the average person a convenient and easy method to make smoothies that they can take on the go.

 

Mom was right – eating your fruits and veggies is important, but it doesn’t have to be a something to dread. A healthy smoothie mix helps you get your daily nutritional requirements in a tasty and easy way!
