Island green smoothie is a healthy, quick and easy meal during the day. Are you thinking about weight loss? Most of us want to eat healthy and look good. There is nothing wrong with that. Health and happiness are the best things in life.
Tips to help you lose weight
The only way to lose weight is to be in a calorie deficit, no matter what diet you follow. If you’re eating foods with the highest volume and lowest calories, you’ll keep full and happy, making it easy to stay in a calorie deficit. It’s best to have a slight calorie deficit over a long period of time, so it doesn’t feel like you’re starving yourself. People fail at weight loss because they feel hungry. This way they overeat later and gain even more. If you are eating raw fruits or veggies, you’re just giving your body what it needs and leaving all the junk behind you. Drinking super green smoothies and eating raw food can help you get into a calorie deficit without having to count calories or think about it much. Melons, oranges, peaches, apples, kiwis, mangoes and persimmons are all healthy choices.
Once you start giving your body the right fuel, you’ll automatically feel more energized and clear-headed. Getting in shape and eating healthy should be lifelong goals. There’s nothing more nutritious than an Island green smoothie. Here is the recipe.

How to store smoothies
After you’ve made your smoothie, pour it into a mason jar and close it with a lid. You can keep it in plastic juice bottles or shaker bottle. I recommend you fill the container to the very top to prevent air from being trapped in the container. The air oxidizes the nutrients in your smoothie, degrading its nutritional value. Store in the refrigerator. Freezing smoothies will lose some nutrients. The best smoothies are made using freshly made smoothies. Shake and enjoy.
