5 Reasons To Replace 1 Meal A Day With A Smoothie
Smoothies are very versatile. They can be consumed after meals as a dessert or after a workout to refresh the body or as a stand alone meal replacement and are of course smoothies can also be a great addition to any health regime.
Some physicians may prescribe regular meal replacements to their patients to treat a condition. For others, it’s more about time constraints. The task of preparing a meal in the kitchen takes a lot of time which they simply don’t have.
Here we look at the 5 Reasons To Replace 1 Meal A Day With A Smoothie:
- Weight management
Right out of the gate, this is the topmost reason many people are dusing smoothies as a safe meal replacement. As a study published in the International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders in 2003 has found, diets that use meal replacements that are fortified with vitamins and minerals can safely help you lose a significant amount of weight and lessen the risk for obesity-related diseases.

- Step up the nutrition
Like it or not, we miss out on important vitamins and minerals as well as essential acids and proteins that can be found in fresh fruits and vegetables. This is with the number of additives and preservatives found in the food that we consume daily. One smoothie a day may help supply our bodies with all of the good things we’re missing out on.
- High In Fibre
Vegetables can do wonders for cleansing the body from the inside but, let’s be honest, not all of us are great fans. Putting vegetables in smoothies can be a great trick to getting more fibre in our bodies that works wonders for the colon and the general cleansing of our other organs.
- Give your body a break
Aside from fibre, vegetables are helpful for their anti-inflammatory properties and ability to help with indigestion. Give your body a respite from discomfort by consuming a smoothie made with vegetables at least once a day.
- Fortify your defenses
We’ve come a long way from the old adage. Nowadays, it’s "a smoothie a day keeps the doctor away". Nothing can strengthen the immune system better than a tall serving of fruits and vegetables filled with vitamins and minerals in a smoothie.
