I have this smoothie in the mornings about 5 days a week. Why I have it for breakfast is that the goal is to eat about 500g of vegetables a day. With this smoothie at least I give myself a good chance to reach the goal. Also the smoothie makes me feel great.
1 dl oats
1 apple, Granny Smith, etc.
1 handful Spinach
2 handfuls of rocket salad
2 sticks of Celery
You can also add pumkin seeds, sunflower seeds, spriulina or what ever you want to boost it with.
Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavonoids, and dietary fibre. Red Delicious, Granny Smith and Cox Orange are the apple sorts that are anti-angiogenesis, which means they have anti-cancer effects. This is due to the flavone quercetin found in apples. Quercetin will also help to regulate the immune system and reduce inflammation.
Apples contain pectin, a
type of fibre that acts as a prebiotic. This means it feeds the good
bacteria in your gut and supports a healthy digestive system. Your small intestine
absorb the fibre during digestion. Instead, it goes to your colon, where it can
promote the growth of good bacteria.
As well as
vitamins A and C that support the immune system, vitamin K needed for
blood clotting, biotin (vitamin B7) that helps to break down fat, and
iodine which is involved in healthy thyroid function.
