Today, Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne, Indiana will be sharing information on which is healthier: smoothie or salad?
Smoothies and juices:
Ranging from smooth to thick consistencies, these beverages are great for supplying a burst of nutrients and flavor to your body.
Smoothies and juices are quite beneficial for the body. Some go on a ‘juice fast’ to lose weight, and some just enjoy a smoothie as a refreshing treat. Don’t miss an opportunity to amp up some energy before a morning jog!
A tip from Becca:
There are many blenders and juicers out there to choose from. It is imperative to purchase a high quality blender or juicer for your kitchen rather than a cost friendly one – certain blenders may dilute the vitamins and minerals in your smoothie or juice. While the price-tag is appealing, you could be losing precious nutrients; this pretty much eliminates the primary idea of purchasing the blender!
Spinach, berries, nuts, broccoli, mushrooms, herbs, and a variety of other fruits and leafy greens can really add some pizzazz in a bowl with a dull appearance.
Many of these ingredients can be placed in a juicer or blender – so what is the difference?
Salad is a wholesome material – instead of being finely grated or chopped, salad is literally the pre-blended mixture of a smoothie.
Why are salads good for the body?
First off, salads are great for supplementing fiber into the diet. Forget just the apple – a salad a day keeps the doctor away! **
**We at Organic Gurlz Gardens are not pharmacists nor do we practice in this field. We advise checking with your physician for any major diet changes. **
In addition, you will be filling up with all the minerals and nutrients that the fruits and veggies hold!
So, in this kitchen culinary battle, it seems we would have a tie. Smoothies and juices excel in their ‘blend’ of skills, and salad can definitely ‘toss’ up the competition.
Don’t forget to tell your kids, grandchildren , nieces and nephews about the Kids Oasis!
