One very simple way to get more greens in your Eating Plan.
There’s no disputing that leafy green vegetables are the healthiest foods on the planet. The more you eat, the leaner and healthier you’ll be. Since they’re so nutrient-dense, full of fiber, and low in calories (around 100 calories per 2kg), you can consume them in virtually unlimited amounts.
Green vegetables are loaded with protein (100 calories of broccoli has 7.2 grams) and contain a cornucopia of micronutrients, including folate, carotenoids such as lutein and zeaxanthin (which promote healthy vision), calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids. Some leafy greens, like kale, watercress, collards, arugula, and bok choy, belong to the cruciferous family of vegetables whose unique nutrients such as isothiocyanates have been shown to be some of the most powerful cancer fighters in existence.
But what if you don’t feel like eating enormous salads all the time? Not to worry.
There is one very simple way to include more leafy greens in your eating. This simple trick would be even great for sneaking greens into a fussy child’s or fussy adult’s eating plan.
Blending and Juicing
Don’t like chomping down on greens for what seems like endless periods of time? Drink them instead. Blending your greens into a smoothie or making a cold-pressed juice with primarily vegetables (and a small amount of fruit, if necessary) helps to increase the bioavailability of beneficial micronutrients by breaking down the walls of plant cells, a feat that chewing alone might not accomplish adequately. Even if you’re a big salad eater, including blended or juiced greens into your eating plan is worth trying if you’re not doing it already.
One of the main factors contributing to my success on this eating plan was to start every day with “The Stacker Smoothie”. I believe there is no better way to feed our minds and bodies first thing in the morning.
The Stacker Smoothies are high in fibre and jammed packed with vitamins and minerals needed for world-class energy levels. After consuming it I operate on a higher level with razor sharp focus.
When we start our days with a Stacker Smoothie it increases our energy, focus and well-being.
We are instantly setting ourselves up to win the day and dominate!
You can also use the Stacker Special Smoothies whenever you are struggling for time to get a meal in or you just feel like enjoying a delicious secret weapon smoothie.
Here is one of my favourites:
The Stacker green Machine smoothie
500ML of water
1 cup of broccoli
2 stalks of celery
1 scoops of YOR health super greens
1 scoop of YOR Fibre
30 grams of AbStacker whey protein
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Macro break down
Surprisingly this is DELICIOUS – don’t take my word for it. Go out and try it. Start your mornings with green smoothies you will be winning!
