A healthy gut is increasingly becoming something difficult to achieve – thanks to GMO foods, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, and all types of processed food. Our digestive system is designed such that it remains healthy and responds well only when it is treated with natural food like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Unfortunately, fruits and vegetables have taken a backseat in our daily diets, as we find ourselves enamoured by beverages and other products replete with artificial ingredients and elements. Consequently, we end up essentially torturing our gut by making it take in stuff for what it was never designed.
Well, it’s time to be nice to your gut! Read on to learn about five smoothie recipes for a healthy gut. These smoothies provide necessary nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and other components – that are great not only for your stomach but for your entire body. We have also kept in mind that the ingredients should be something easy to procure and that the smoothies should not take much time to prepare. In fact, all these smoothies will take no more than two minutes to make. You can even refrigerate them, and carry them to work, for a healthy snack-break.
Here are a few pointers for getting the perfect smoothie:
- First of all, try to get your fruits and vegetables as much fresh as possible. This will ensure that you get the maximum nutrition.
- Secondly, drink different smoothies on different days to avoid tiring your taste buds with the same flavors.
- Thirdly, know the benefits of each ingredient, and try experimenting a little with new ingredients.
- Lastly, and most importantly, know what type of smoothies do not suit you, and avoid them.
