The importance of Fibre in your diet.
Diatary fibre is found in fruit, vegetables, cereals, beans, lentils, nuts and many other foods of plant origin. Fibre keeps the digestive system healthy. Fibre helps maintain your weight by keeping you satisfied on less food to stay full for longer thereby reducing the amount of food you eat. Most people don't have enough fibre in their diet. Diets high in fibre can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and the risk of colon cancer. The Heart Foundation says that you should have at least 30g of fiber daily. Our Health Smoothies - will help you achieve this daily.
Natural Sugar is best!
Fruit and vegetables contain natural sugar with the nutritional benefits of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre. Try using Natural and not processed Sugars. An excellent Natural sweetener is Agave Nectar which is derived from the Agave Plant (see photo) that grows in Mexico and southwestern United States.
One of the most health-promoting properties of agave nectar is its favorable glycemic profile. Its sweetness comes primarily from a complex form of fructose called inulin. Fructose is the sugar that occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables. The carbohydrate in agave nectar has a low glycemic index, which provides sweetness without the unpleasant "sugar rush" and unhealthful blood sugar spike caused by many other sugars. Agave nectar is a delicious natural sweetener that can be used moderately - by dieters, some diabetics, and health conscious cooks - to replace high-glycemic and refined sugars.
Fruit & Veg are good for you!
They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but many of us still don't eat them. Combining Fruit in Juices, Smoothies and Yoghurts can make them seem irresistible! With out a doubt Gram for Gram, fruits are among the healthiest foods a person can consume, offering numerous benefits (from antioxidants to vitamin C to potassium to fiber) in huge quantities that other foods don't come close to.
