The secret of green cocktails

There is no person in this world who does not know that greens are necessary and useful. However, the word “useful” can cause unpleasant associations associated with the nasty taste of drugs! Down with those unnecessary thoughts! For a start, let’s see what is “green”? In principle, “greens” can be characterized by one, all familiar word – grass.

So, this is all sorts of salads of different varieties, cilantro, salad chicory, amaranth, parsnip, celery, basil, lovage, nasturtium, hyssop, marjoram, thyme, watercress, rosemary and escariol, celery, and so on.

The secret of green cocktails

Only a few can boast that they periodically and in the right quantities consume this storehouse of vitamins. Most often we consume greens in salads or in the decoration of dishes. However, because we consider the presence of “grass” in our diet a stupid mistake, our precious greens do not become less useful and important!

Few people know or think about the fact that virtually everything that is necessary for the normal functioning of our body is in this very banal greens: proteins and fiber, essential amino acids that are not synthesized in our body, and which must be supplied, large amounts of vitamins , trace elements (calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, potassium).

The secret of green cocktails

In the conditions of modern life, people consume less raw food, and as a result, we are sorely lacking fiber! And its presence is the most important condition for normal intestinal peristalsis, i.e. normal functioning of the gastrointestinal tract and the withdrawal of various toxins from our long-suffering body. For example, I think you have ever heard the term “increased acidity”, so the green helps the body to get rid of excess acid by alkalization.

In order for the greens to be a blessing in all its glory, it is necessary to chew it as carefully as possible, since this is a product containing a large amount of fibers (fiber) that are sufficiently coarse for our body, and otherwise the greens will not be digested to the end and, accordingly, we will not get all that they could. But since we are always in a hurry somewhere, we don’t have to chew for a long time and carefully, and here we are in a hurry to meet the blender. You ask why? After all, it is somehow not aesthetically pleasing to chew green grass gruel …

The secret of green cocktails

We answer, there are a number of recipes, the so-called “green cocktails.” It sounds ridiculous enough, but actually it’s a very useful thing. When using such cocktails, we absorb those very greens in fairly large quantities, and besides, they give a feeling of satiety for a long time and without gravity. This is especially useful for girls who would like to lose weight. Greenery, by the way, is the key to a beautiful figure, as far as possible, by cleansing the intestines.

Green smoothies are quick and easy to prepare. There are many recipes for this “medicine”, but they are all based on the same principle: any edible “herb” + water and fruits, or vegetables. The ratio of greens and fruits should be about 40 to 60.

You can easily create your signature recipe, because everything depends only on your imagination!
