Everyone wants to be healthier, but for those with a busy life, making healthy choices is a lot more preparation than grabbing a slice of toast, a snack bar, or picking up the phone for a take-away.  When you’re rushing from one thing to another, planning a balanced meal just seems like too much effort.  But looking after yourself doesn’t have to be hard work.  Initially, just swapping one meal a day for a healthier version is enough to make a difference, and once you notice that difference, you’ll want to make more changes to your day.

As we all know, the most nutrient-dense foods are fruits and vegetables – they keep us in tip-top condition and help our bodies fights off chronic disease.  And the superheroes of the plant world are leafy greens (spinach, kale, rocket, chard, romaine lettuce) which are just rammed with iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamins such as B, K, C and E, beta-carotene, and some amino acids and omega 3 fats.  No wonder Popeye loved to eat his spinach.

The problem with greens is sometimes they can be a little hard to swallow, but the quickest and easiest way to cram them in to your diet is to start the day with a smoothie!  It’s the most fast and furious form of food.  No mess, no fuss, and if you have lids for your blender cups, it’s portable too, meaning you can drink your smoothie on the way to work!

If you think there is no way you could ever drink a green vegetable, never fear!  Packing in plenty of fruit will make your smoothie sweet, delicious AND full of goodness.  Apart from the colour, you’d never know a green ever passed your lips.
