Ladies, it’s time to break out your blenders!  We all love occasionally grinding up a good cocktail or a strawberry daiquiri, but the blended drink your body really needs is a smoothie. Thanks to healthy recipe shows like The Domestic Greek on YouTube, you can find recipes filled with healthy fruits and vegetables to keep our bodies happy. I must admit, as a picky eater, I use most of these recipes to make sure I get my essential nutrients. However, every “bronze queen” can benefit from these as well. As women, we are constantly on our feet; so busy taking care of others that we often forget to take care of ourselves. It’s imperative to maintain a healthy diet, but sometimes it can be incredibly difficult. We need to make sure each meal is packed with the nutrients we need to get through the day. Smoothies are becoming a very popular detox option for women who want to get their bodies back on track. Below are some quick and easy possibilities. If you want to also watch how to make these tasty smoothie recipes, check out The Domestic Greek’s video here

An important tip to leave you with: Always try to get the vitamins and minerals from your food. Supplements seem like the better option because they can help you achieve your daily percentage quickly,however, obtaining them through natural fruits and vegetables is easier than you think. If you do your research, you’ll find that it isn’t difficult to find foods that easily nourish the body. Just look at the recipes above! Before you know it, you’ll be throwing those vitamins out the window. So stay warm and stay beautiful!
