Healthy and Nutritious Lean and Green Smoothie
Morning routine game-changer.
Starting your day with a smoothie can be a game-changer for your health. Smoothies have numerous benefits, such as boosting bowel movements, detoxifying your body, and promoting overall wellness. By skipping solid foods in the morning, your body doesn’t have to spend energy digesting, and your intestines can easily absorb the nutrients from the smoothie.
This efficient absorption of nutrients helps your body to effectively utilize its stored energy for cleansing, making it an excellent way to improve your health. The Fab Four recipe collection is based on four fundamental components: protein, fat, fiber, and greens. Incorporating these elements into your diet is crucial in maintaining a feeling of fullness and regulating blood sugar levels.
Protein: Helps build and maintain muscle, neurotransmitters, hormones, and immune cells.
Fat: Keeps your cells and hormones healthy and functioning properly.
Fiber: Feeds your gut bacteria, which keeps your gut working as it should.
Greens: Provide the necessary vitamins and antioxidants to fight inflammation and infections.
