I've been becoming increasingly more interested in nutrition and healthful eating. Maybe you're like me and are trying to live a little healthier yourself. I certainly believe we can all benefit from a few small changes.
Now don't get me wrong, I still have my vices (and plenty of them) but at the end of the day, if I have eaten a good amount of healthy fruits and veggies, I feel as though I'm well on my way to living a longer, stronger, leaner (crossing fingers) more healthy and fit life.
As my quest to bring you delicious and nutritious tasting smoothies continues, today I bring you the CCRCPA. Sounds good right?
It IS!!! It's totally yummy and SO, SO good for you!
Here are the ingredients and some of the health benefits of each, just to whet your whistle.
C - CANTELOUPE - A wonderful source of flolate that maintains healthy cells and prevents anemia.
Excellent source of potassium which is an important mineral for the entire body,
especially for muscle and heart contraction.
C - CARROTS - B1, B2, B6 vitamin K and many more.
Reduces the risk of stroke and nourishes the skin with cleansing properties and
aids in detoxifying the liver.
R - ROMAINE - Promotes healthy weight loss because of it's high water content and also a healthy
digestive tract. Romaine also lowers the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
C - CUCUMBER - Does not contain saturated fats or cholesterol. Cucumbers are rich in potassium
which is a heart friendly electrolyte and helps reduce blood pressure and heart
rates by countering the effects of sodium.
P - PEAR - Pears have a high content of pectin that helps lower cholesterol and is a wonderful
anti inflammatory. The high level of Boron in pears can also help prevent and
A - APPLE - Apples have zero fat and cholesterol and almost no sodium. With an abundance of
vitamin's C, K and B6, apples promote fat burning polyphenols which reduce
artery clogging. Apples also have anti inflammatory properties that help reduce
asthma related swelling.
Cheers to your good health! Drink up and enjoy...
I feel better already. Now it's your turn... :)
