2 Minute Smoothie

Our organs produce around 24 different types of enzymes so that we can digest our food properly.  They are also found in a variety of foods, like raw uncooked fruit, vegetables and meats – which are great, if we eat enough of them. But do we?  Probably not.  Most American diets are high in processed foods that destroy important enzymes due to cooking, canning and other methods of food processing. This could help explain why there are so many people with digestive health problems.  If we’re not getting enough enzymes in our diets, then our bodies have trouble breaking down important nutrients.

I do my best to avoid most processed man-made foods and stick to eating nutrient-rich whole foods. These tend to give me the real nourishment that my body needs, instead of something I can only digest part of.

It’s not always easy to be healthy, especially if you have a busy schedule. Personally, I’m not much of a planner, so I often need my food to be fast and healthy.  So, below you will find my yummy smoothie recipe which accomplishes just that.  Plus, the raw fruit content will give you some of those helpful enzymes you may need for better digestion.  I hope you enjoy it!
