First of all, if you are new to the world of green smoothies, welcome. It’s good to have you here. One of the first things to know about this green smoothie is that it offers a wide range of nutrients. If you glanced at the ingredient list, you saw spinach, flax seeds, and raw almond butter. All three of those ingredients offer lots of protein, magnesium, and dietary fiber, which helps to move food through the digestive tract. They also offer other nutrients like iron, potassium, and powerful antioxidants.
If you are aiming to keep your figure during the summer months, this smoothie is for you. Not only does it help to keep you full, but it may even help keep unhealthy cravings at bay. You may even notice that drinking it for breakfast helps you sustain energy levels throughout the day. This is primarily because of the ground flax seeds, which contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber helps to slow digestion and increase intestinal consistency, while insoluble fiber allows water to bind to stool for softer and easier elimination.
