Whatever the main objective, increasing your intake of fresh fruit and vegetables is arguably one of the biggest contributors to a healthier lifestyle. The excuse most people find for not incorporating more into their daily diet is usually around the matter of convenience.
A simple way is to introduce smoothies into your life!
TrueSapien friend Yemsmoothies offers these simple yet nutritious ideas to try. Let us know what you think!
1 Avocado, Banana, Broccoli [raw], Spinach, Pear

Base used for all smoothies – Water
If you’re drinking smoothies for weight loss/detox as one of your meal replacements i.e breakfast or dinner then keep your smoothies as green as possible.
Note that you’ll still need to exercise, eat and drink clean to achieve your weight loss. A Green smoothie isn’t a magical weight loss drink!
Your healthy or weight loss smoothies aren’t meant to be extremely sweet like ” cold stone or Wall’s ice cream ” so don’t plough it with overly sweet fruits. Your solid sweeteners should be either pineapple, mango, banana or 1 -2 dates.
Drink and taste the colour of your smoothies.
Worried that your breakfast smoothie won’t fill you up ? – then add 2 tablespoons of oats. We can guarantee you that you’ll be full to the brim after drinking it!
Use coconut / almond/tigernut milk, water, coconut water or even cool green tea as your base.
