7 Reasons to Start Your Day with a Green Smoothie

1. Hydration

Start your morning off with 2 cups of fresh water and a green smoothie. You’re instantly hydrating your body, waking up your brain and giving yourself a solid foundation to work from for the rest of the day to make healthy choices for your body.

2. Energy

Instead of a heavy cooked breakfast, you may benefit from a lighter green smoothie in the morning to get yourself going. This can be especially helpful if you’re feeling overweight or stressed. Try a green smoothie if you want a nice little energy boost.

3. Reduce Inflammation

Green smoothies can naturally lower inflammation and reduce pain in the body by nourishing you with the proper nutrients and minerals needed for healing. Add half a banana to your green smoothie for more potassium, cacao for magnesium, avocado for healthy fats, coconut oil for – well, everything almost! Greens are super beneficial for minerals as well.

4. Clear Brain Fog

When you’re hydrated, you naturally have a better ability to focus, feel clear-headed and achieve your goals. Starting your morning off with a green smoothie can help clear brain fog and give you the power you need to rock your day.

5. Get Glowing Skin

Green smoothie drinkers can often be recognized by their glowing skin. No joke, even after just a few days of adding a green smoothie into your routine, you may find your skin is clear and even starts to glow. The better your nutrition, the healthier your skin. But don’t forget to get a lot of healthy fat in too!

6. Prevent Food Cravings

When you start your day off with something uber healthy, you’re less inclined to go for something lower down on the charts midday. By offering your body real nutrition, you’re setting a foundation for higher expectations, where your body and brain can begin to link up what real food actually looks and feels like. Eventually, you’ll begin to have super healthy cravings rather than unhealthy ones. It’s all about routine and consistency.

7. Quick and Easy 

Green smoothies take mere minutes to prepare and are an excellent source of fuel on the go. This is one way for you to add extra nutrition into your day while also shaving time off your morning. You’ll prevent those morning bagels and muffins from sneaking into your breakfast, while nourishing yourself without the extra time it takes to prepare a full meal.
