It’s easy to forget that you are breathing as you’ve been doing it ever since you were born. It’s also quite easy to forget to maintain the health of your lungs. The good news is that it’s not that difficult to keep your lungs in good condition. As a matter of fact, drinking smoothie can help a lot. Of course, your smoothie should be packed with high amounts of minerals and vitamins in order to boost your respiratory system.
Here’s a recipe that you might want to try. You will need the following:
• 3 celery stalks
• 1 apple
• 1 cup of water
• Ice (if you want a chilled drink)
• ½ lemon, peeled
• 2 inch chunk of ginger
• 3 kale leaves
To create the smoothie, you only need to combine the ingredients in a blender and thoroughly blend them. In just a few seconds, you’ll have a green smoothie. If you don’t like the lumps in your smoothie, you can just juice the ingredients but this can remove the delicious and sweet fiber that your digestive tract loves so much. Each of the ingredients that is found in this recipe is ideal for the lungs and the best part is that the antioxidants contained in this smoothie can actually help reduce your risk of cancer.
What other benefits that you can get from creating green smoothies?
1. They’re easy to make. You don’t have to do a lot of preparation except for getting the ingredients. You only need to toss them all into the blender and blend.
2. They provide energy. Since you’re using fresh ingredients without any heat required, you’re actually consuming the full minerals and vitamins found in the leafy greens. What’s more, you’re also getting added energy from your green smoothie because of the healthy ingredients that you’re using.
3. Stay hydrated. Many tend to forget to drink water because they’re busy while some don’t really like the taste of water. Green smoothies, like this recipe, actually helps you stay hydrated while keeping you healthy too.
