Energy Benefits of Seeds in Smoothies
Seeds, such as chia, flax, and sunflower seeds help regulate your blood sugar, helping to prevent the feeling of an energy crash that happens after eating empty carb meals like a bagel, or after drinking a stimulant like sugar or coffee. Seeds are also considered a complex carbohydrate, containing a large amount of fiber which means they take a longer time to digest, giving the body a sustainable amount of energy.
Energy Benefits of Greens in Smoothies
Leafy greens contain several vitamins and minerals which work to keep your energy levels consistent throughout the day. They provide your body with vitamins A, K, C, and B, iron, and magnesium making them extremely nutrient dense despite their simple appearance.
Energy Benefits of Fruit in Smoothies
Berries and citrus fruits such as lemons and clementines are both packed with vitamin C which is widely known to give your body a boost in the morning. Adding these ingredients to your smoothies will give you a pick me up while also providing you with immune boosting benefits.
