I got a Smoothie Blender some years ago and I used it a couple of times back then. It has been abandoned in my kitchen cabinet until some days ago. I have started using the blender every day now and it has been amazing. I have now incorporated what I call the smoothie lunch diet and it simply means I swap my lunch for a smoothie. The smoothie lunch diet has been going on for about a week now and I feel so good.
Many people have asked why I decided to start this diet, so I am just going to quickly explain why. I am not one to eat fruits and vegetables. My daily fruit and veggies intake are nowhere near the recommended daily amount. This has always been a worry for me and I have tried many times to eat more fruits and vegetables but my intention never works. All that has changed now with this new diet of mine. I now take a good amount of fruit and vegetables on a daily basis and my body has been thanking me.
My quest is for a healthy and balanced diet. Swapping my lunch for smoothies as nothing to do with losing weight. I am very happy and comfortable with my BMI. There is no need for me to lose any weight. This is just to get a good amount of fruits and live vegetables into my body.
The Smoothie Lunch Diet
I mix all sorts of fruits and veggies together. My favourite combo includes bananas, carrots, spinach, strawberries, chia seeds, fruit juice and almond milk. Sometimes I swap some of the vegetables for cucumbers. It usually tastes great. At first, I thought I would be starving and miss my lunch meals but I have discovered I actually feel even more energetic than I would if I had proper meals. I can see myself carrying on with this diet for a long time to come. It works great for me because I am home lunchtime anyway so it is easy to do.
