Searching for the perfect vegetable smoothie?


I have joined the vegetable smoothie revolution.  Mostly to lose weight, but also to provide information for us guys.  Most information today on  the Internet is all about women.  Nothing wrong with that, but when I started looking for information that made sense to me, I couldn’t the right information.

I was in Sam’s Club last week and noticed they had Vitamins for Women and Vitamins for Men.  I looked at the contents of each and they were almost the same, just different amounts.  Shouldn’t a vegetable smoothie be different also?

Who has time for a 7 day green detox or even a 3 day green detox?  I came up with the one day green detox program.

What is the most exciting part of the vegetable smoothie revolution?  Without any coaxing, without any badgering, without any “I told you so”, my wife has joined me and is learning “how to make a healthy smoothie”.  She said since my smoothies sometimes do not taste “good”, (her opinion), she will make her own.  She goes for a more of a smoother taste blended well and heavier on the fruit side.  She said if I am going to drink it, I am going to enjoy it.  The other amazing part is that for breakfast smoothie, she is unable to drink even one glass because she says it fills her up.  She just puts it in the frig and has it for a mid-morning snack.

The grandkids making their own smoothies for kids after school.  They normally have an ice cream social after school, but it looks like now it will be a vegetable smoothie social.  If they get to make their own it may be a success.  I will keep you posted.

What to add to the vegetable smoothie for fiber?  I began adding two tablespoons of flax seed

 to my vegetable smoothie.  Flaxseed contains Omega-3 essential fatty acids, Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities and Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types.  Flaxseed contains other healthy components, search here for more information on Flaxseed.

Check out the other pages on our website, especially the page for the Best Blenders for Smoothies.  Make sure you look at the Vitamix 5200.  This is the one that I use and can really blend all ingredients together in less than a minute.
