On-the-Go Smoothies, Soups, and Bowls

By January 14, 2020No Comments

Convenient foods in the freezer- on the go smoothies, soups, and bowls.

Life gets busy. Mornings gets busy. And it’s nice to have a few healthy convenient choices in the freezer to just grab.

One of my new favorite items to grab from my freezer are Daily Harvest smoothies and soups. Why? Because they are made with whole fruits and vegetables and I’m constantly trying to get more fruits and veggies into my and my kids diets.

Why do I care so much about getting in plenty of fruits and veggies each day? Because…
.

1️⃣They provide antioxidants. Antioxidants protect your cells against free radicals. Free radicals contribute to heart disease, cancer, weakened immune system, and more.

2️⃣They are full of phytonutrients. These are over 25,000 naturally occurring chemicals found in plants that can help protect the body from illnesses.

3️⃣They are full of fiber. Most Americans do not get enough fiber in their day. The recommended amount is 25-30 grams a day. The average American gets 15 grams a day. Fiber is essential to a healthy digestive system.

4️⃣Full of vitamins and minerals that your body can actually absorb.

5️⃣Full of so many health benefits, including helping your body detox.

In this favorite tart cherry and raspberry smoothie of mine it has:
.
Organic cauliflower in it – this is high in fiber. Has vitamin c, k, and b6. Because of its high amount of vit c, it’s known for boosting immune health.
.
Organic tart cherry – contains vitamins C, A, and small amounts of vit bs. Full of antioxidants, omega 3s, and plant compounds. Tart cherry is known for its anti inflammatory properties too.
.
Organic raspberries and mission figs – both full of so many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. And figs have 3 grams of fiber for each ounce! That’s huge! This will aid in your digestion!

Fruits and veggies are so important, and unfortunately so many people do not get enough in their daily meals. Daily Harvest is a company that sends these pre made portion smoothies and soups to your home for your convenience. I did team up with them because I love their ingredients & what they stand for. Use code JUSTINGREDIENTS for $25 off your first box.
