Did you understand that nutrition professionals now recommend nine portions of vegetables and fruits daily for optimal wellness? It holds true!

Naturally consuming these foods in their natural state assists to insure that we get the most nutritional value from them. That's why drinking one smoothie and one glass of green veggie juice every day is a terrific idea.

Nutritionally-balanced smoothies and green vegetable juices can give your body a significant dose of minerals, vitamins, protein, fiber and disease-fighting phytochemicals, which are chemicals produced by plants.

And when you feed your body exactly what it needs, you'll find yourself yearning the wrong foods less and less.

With time, this can equate into substantial weight loss and increased energy.
