Mes deux jus verts préférés

 Green juices are not linked to weight loss, for detox purposes or as a meal replacement. They have multiple advantages that have nothing to do directly with these beliefs. The vegetable mixes can be eaten as a snack and easy to incorporate as a refreshment by the pool.e. 

I have, for one reason or another, suggested this kind of green juice in the morning to my clients. Why Forget the concept of detox in the morning, I don't believe it. For some, this gesture is a guarantee of establishing a winning routine and a symbol of the ability to take care of oneself. Just making this vitamin blend in the morning after waking up can motivate people to stick to good habits throughout the day. journée.

Breakfast is an important meal and often dictates how we will be able to perform physically and mentally during the day. The smoothie will then have a transitional role to slowly establish the habit of eating breakfast in the morning towards a solid and more complete meal.t.

By choosing the right ingredients, the smoothie can also help support digestion. Placing it as a snack will allow you to incorporate something easy to digest between two meals. It is one tool among many others but considerable in this perspective.ue.

There are multiple possibilities depending on tastes, intolerances and seasonal fruits / vegetables. I advise you to favor organic products, fresh, from a market gardener or from your garden because it is still necessary that the ingredients are of quality to help you and reap the benefits..

Do not hesitate to try, incorporate well washed peels, leafy vegetables and broccoli stems for example..

I leave the mixtures to you by portion but by using raw vegetables you can prepare everything for a few days in the fridge! Adding a small portion of plain protein is a smart choice.

If you can add crushed ice in your blender to add more freshness, it tastes even more delicious..
