We live in a fast, paced demanding world. We need nourishment that is of the highest quality. I truly enjoy smoothies. They are high energy foods that are so easy to digest and prepare. I have them from one to three times a day, especially when my schedule is particularly demanding. A 16 oz. serving will keep me energized for two to four hours. I might have smoothies all day long and then have a more substantial meal late in the afternoon.Smoothies are quick to prepare and require very little chewing. As a result, it takes practically no time to eat. It the Ingedients are raw, then they are virtually predigested and are high in enzymes.Some smoothies are complete meals in the sense that you are getting protein & complex carbohydrates in addition to all desired greens, as well as a dessert taste because it is sweet.
