what do they do…what you need…
how do you know if your smoothie is meeting your needs?
proper smoothie-ing should follow the rules to proper nutrition and it’s really not that hard:
Just always consider these 2 important factors:
1) what the foods you ingest do for you
Let’s use our Smoodee as an example:
- the greens help you with digestion, absorption, and mini-detoxes!
- the fruits are carbohydrates that provide you with energy
- the seeds provide you with protein that aid in muscle maintenance & development (they even provide healthy fats!)
See?—just like that! Now try doing that for all the foods you can think of, or practice by going into your kitchen and see how well you can identify what the foods you have on hand do for you.
Remember, we want you to try and learn for yourself, so go on-line, get some books, do your research to help you understand. If you need any further help, clarification, or want to learn more, contact our registered dietitian for a personalized consultation today!
2) what your body requires at any given time
- when do you need those greens—let’s say always!! We are always eating, so we can always use help with better/optimal digestion. Sometimes we don’t always eat perfectly, and to help us rid our insides of some accumulated ‘blah’, they help us with detoxing or eliminating waste
- when do you need carbs-? how about for energy to get you going in the morning? or a burst before a workout? but do you need it right before bed, or when you’re just sitting around doing nothing?
- when do you need extra protein?- are you going to be using your muscles. have you just used your muscles? are you trying to maintain or build more muscle?
Sure we want to eat healthy- but it’s just as important to eat functionally. Start planning your meals accordingly and you’ll see an increase in performance and have a better handle on your nutrition related goals.
