Trying to lose weight this year? One of the best ways to lose weight is drinking smoothies for breakfast or lunch. Adding beneficial protein into the drinks makes you feel full longer, thus not over eating or snacking throughout the day. We love Raw Plant-Based Protein in our shakes with fresh herbs and fruit.
Parsley has a fresh smell and taste, and it’s really good for your body. It is extremely low in calories and high in nutrients, including vitamins A, C, B-9, K, and iron. Parsley is naturally high in fiber, containing 2 grams per 1-cup serving of chopped leaves. It helps flush out excess fluid from the body, so it supports kidney function.
Strawberry are also loaded with Vitamin C, 3 grams of fiber, and some calcium, magnesium, and potassium. They’re tasty on their own and they really boost up the flavor of smoothies. Strawberries are said to stimulate your metabolism and help suppress your appetite. Strawberries boost fiber and can also help you lose weight.
Protein intake is critical for weight loss. It saves on calories and fills you up. Adding protein into your smoothies slows down digestion making you feel more satisfied. Did you know that you are actually burning more calories to process protein than carbs?
