The adverts have been on for over a year now..but I haven’t heard of many people buying them so I assumed we all knew…Until I had a comment on my stop snacking on sugar post,
“I’m trying to kick a sugar addiction at the moment. But I can’t bear to juice vegetables!”
Whoa whoa whoa, hold on there… don’t you know it’s bad for you?
Drinking vegetables is a waste!
But, why are they bad?
- A banana and a roasted sweet potato!
- Roasted cinnamon spiced Apple and rice flaked porridge (gluten free)
- Bacon wrapped eggs (two)
- A paleo waffle and fruit salad ( a small one)
- A paleo waffle and bacon (a small one)
- A poached egg on a courgette hash with onions tomatoes and mushrooms!
There are tonnes of healthy alternatives, these are just similar in calories, feel free to browse then recipes page if you want some inspiration. But, back to smoothies…
Fiber is important for vegetables because the majority of the time we’re eating them we’re doing it for health, to fill us up and stop us from snacking on bad foods, fiber acts like a barrier.Imagine a bucket (that’s your stomach)
Pour your vegetable juice through the hay.. Goes in pretty quickly, right?
Now, If you crushed and squashed it into a paste it take a pretty long time to move to the bottom of the bucket!
|Sometimes they really taste nice…|
But, Blending vegetables isn’t all bad, if it’s something you enjoy. But remember, you’re removing the fiber, so if you want it for flavour and not for filling just choose a low sugar high water vegetable; cucumbers, bell peppers, celery, kale, tomatoes.
*I’m making a Christmas hack / Christmas sugar post so make sure you come back for that!
