Smoothie Season Year Round
Keep your immunity strong during the winter months
During those warm summer months nothing sounds better than a thick, delicious, cold smoothie. They’re refreshing, hydrating and full of nutrients and vitamins to keep us feeling our best. Summer is the easiest time to meet our fruit and veggie needs since our options are much vaster. Summertime is when most fruits and vegetables are in full swing; juicy strawberries and tomatoes, blackberries, zucchinis, cucumbers, cherries, you name it. This is mostly due to the fact that there is more of a variety to choose from during the warm months, but also because we are drawn to fresh produce in the summer but come winter, and most bets are off for fulfilling our fruit and veggie needs.
During the fall and winter months it’s more important than ever to include fruits and veggies in our daily routines
Although a bowl of fresh berries or a big green salad may not seem as appealing in the colder months, there are plenty of delicious alternatives to obtain the health benefits produce has to offer us.
During the fall and winter months it’s more important than ever to include fruits and veggies in our daily routines. Statistically we work out less, eat foods with less nutritional value and consume foods with more sugars and fats. And on top of that we are more prone to getting sick! By consuming a healthy amount of nutrient dense fruits and vegetables our bodies will be more equipped to fight off sicknesses and keep our immunity levels high. Incorporating fruits and veggies into your meals during the colder months doesn’t have to be hard! Here are a few tips to ensure you’re still making healthy decisions during those colder months.
Eat your fruits first
A simple change you can make in your routine is to eat your fruits and vegetables first thing in the morning
With winter comes the holiday season. Parties, gatherings and celebrations accompanied by foods, drinks, desserts and more food. A big part of why we aren’t getting our necessary fruit and vegetable intake is because we’re getting full off heartier foods and we forget to leave room for anything else. A simple change you can make in your routine is to eat your fruits and vegetables first thing in the morning. This will not only make sure you’re getting those requirements in, but also improve your digestion, reduce bloating and allow your body to absorb the nutrients at a higher level.

I see a lot of people overthinking their fruit and vegetable intake. It doesn’t have to be complicated, the great thing about fruits and vegetables is how versatile they are. They can be consumed on their own, mixed in with one another, topped on bowls, etc. Remember to keep it simple and don’t overthink it. Pick easy fruit and veggie related meals like LiveMore Organics!

A great way to ensure you’re getting the appropriate amount of nutrients is to keep spinach or kale on hand at all times. By adding a handful of each into your smoothies, you’re getting an added cup of greens! The best part about adding these leafy greens to your smoothies is that once they’re blended, their flavor is completely masked by the fruit.

Practice being consciously aware of how you can add fruits or vegetables do your meal.
