Green Fiber Smoothie Bowl
Let’s be real with ourselves; we can all use a little more fiber in our diets, and you can’t forget the greens! Well, it’s just your luck because we crafted a recipe that brings you both with our Green Fiber Smoothie Bowl.🌱
Blended or Pressed Fruits
Smoothies are so easy to make since you can use just about any fruits and greens you have in your own kitchen! BUT did you know blending your fruits and veggies keeps their fiber and other nutrients unlike juicing. It’s true! When you blend fruits and veggies you are still consuming their pulp and skin where a lot of the nutrients are. This gets lost when you juice your fruits and veggies.
This isn’t to say juicing your fruits isn’t nutritious. They do have vitamins and minerals but if you’re looking for a beverage to be a meal replacement, smoothies are the better option!
At Naturlax, we always include fiber in our recipes because it’s a huge part of a well-balanced breakfast! Don’t underestimate the power of fiber. 💪🏻
Why You Should Start Your Day with Fiber
By starting your mornings with plant-based fiber, you are able to feel fuller for longer. And here’s why: fiber sits in your stomach longer because it creates a gel-like substance in your stomach. It slows down digestion and takes up more space in your stomach. Now, you are able to snack less on the donuts your coworker brought in. Including fiber into your breakfast helps in weight loss by avoiding the need to snack throughout the day.
Another Great Ingredient
But wait, that’s not all there is! This bowl contains another great ingredient, and it’s 1 Original Flavor Yum Matcha ®Packet. That’s right, matcha but not just any matcha, Yum Matcha ®! Their matcha contains antioxidants for heart health and brain function!
There are many ways to increase your daily intake of fiber, so here’s one way you can accomplish this with our Green Fiber Smoothie Bowl!
Feel free to alter the recipe to your liking, but this is how we smoothie bowl.
